3,8 k warm-up

5,5 k in 21:50 in a triathlon-relay. The course was a bit hilly throught a forest with a difficult underground. Often the lumberjack put crushed rock on the course, so it wasn´t very comfortable to run. Happy with that time on this ground and out of base training. Nearly didn´t do intervals at all before. Now my team is "Saarländischer Betriebssportmeister" (company-facilitated sport activity in my state) and am not fired because my boss was happy with my effort. (-:

5 k cool-down

What time did your boss run?! Great race, and congrats on your continued employment!

Way to keep your job! How many other companies participated? What place did your company team come in?

My boss had the bike part and did very well: 32' for 20k in a hilly course.

We won that relay. Think it were about 10 teams.

Iím glad to hear your effort was good enough to keep your job. :)
