Keep Dreaming Boy!

8 years on... fueled by Deep Purple!
I really wasn't planning on it. When I woke up, I thought I'd do a 16K to cover 20+K for the week. I had run just once this week and was keen to round it off with a 16K run. But then I got delayed getting on to the treadmill and decided to cut it off to 12K.

All these years, doing 12K in an hour was just a wish, like wouldn't it be something to cherish, if only I could. Over these years I've done 11.2K in an hour in the best of times. The most I had run at 12K speed was 5K and was proud of it.

Back in 2014 when I went to Abu Dhabi was the first time I could push it to 7K and then to 8K @12K an hour 5min per km.

But over the last six months, its been happenning. I first closed in with a 8K run and then with a 10K and recently I clocked 11.85K in an hour.

Today is special. Its 12K with 1:20 min to spare. I'm proud. I'm satisfied. I'm home...
There is 1 more hill to climb... We'll see about it...
