10K, workout #26

I'm still having a cold, but I do feel a bit better. Today's plan is a long run of 18K, but before that, I did something very exciting.

I got invited to meet Eliud Kipchoge, who ran the marathon in 1:59:40 on Saturday. There was a press conference-like meeting at Nationale Nederlanden and together with a running mate, I went there to see the Q&A with Kipchoge, and, of course, to take a picture with him. It was really something special to meet the best long-distance runner to date.

Thanks Runner's World and Nationale Nederlanden for this great opportunity and experience!

The workout

A long run of 18K in heart rate zone 2, pace around 5:00/8:00. The weather was okay, and I chose a nice route along water and through the nice Overschie area.


I did not feel better yet, but not worse either. Apart from that, running was okay.
