Seasons opening in Rome

Finally, the start of the season with a 5000 meters in Rome. The time 13.33 was a about 10 seconds slowere than expected but I am not too worried in terms of that. The important thing is how the system felt. I was feeling very comfortable up to the 3000 meters in 7.57 together with American Dathan Ritzenhein. After that, the nagging calf started bothering me, losing momentum in the takeoff in each stride making it impossible to push for the last 2km.

It was frustrating as I was feeling strong + fine in the rest of the body. But the problem is about to get solved so I should hopefully be fine in not long of a time 🙂

A few easy days now followed by some threshold work on softer surfaces around here. Just striding through and adding in some accelerations in there to keep the system fresh.

From Oslo again!
