Today I ran for my Melbourne club Old Scotch. The race is called The Dyson Relay named after a runner from our association who disappeared in 1942 whilst fighting in the Second World War.
I checked my 1984 diary and saw I ran this race in 14.36 in that year. This year …30 years later…I ran in 17.26. So in thirty years I have slowed almost 3 minutes…..I suppose if you say One minute per ten years it does not sound too bad.
But, but I will get faster.
I started ok and ran the first Km in 4.08. After that I did ok but not really that great.. Gives me the idea however that I should be able to go sub 4 on the track.
