Revenge is best served at sub-10 pace
Somewhat humiliated and frustrated by the fall, decided to go for another 4 miler today and try to see if I could run at a pace that I was comfortable with when I was five years younger. Today, my comfortable pace is more like 11 min/mile. Checked my running records from when I was 50 and it seemed like most of my runs were at 10 min/mile.
I cannot say how much my body is going to hurt later today, but I did match (and beat) my pace from the five years younger Rajib. After the warm up first mile, each subsequent mile came at around 9 min 30 seconds.
Coming to think of it, I really do not care now how much my body might hurt today. Somethings are done just to prove the point that you are too obstinate to accept the obvious!
