3 km warmup with strides

10 km-race in 40:03. It was hot the whole week (up to 40° Celsius/ 104° Fahrenheit), but cooled down today. I thought that might bring a good performance. But I couldn't run well today. Could be because of the humidity, the 3 km of crushed rocks or myself. As I'm running a serious of races to prepare for Ulm-Marathon, I knew there would be good and bad races. I don't care too much about it. Still was a good training.

5 km cooldown

Thanks Donald!

Congrats on a 2nd place win in your age division. The 10k I ran last week was plagued with high humidity as well as high temperature. Keep up the great running.
