Oslos Bratteste (2012)

Race #43 2012 - 2.7km - 22:28.8 - Saturday 29th of September

Oslos Bratteste has become one of my favourite events through out the racing season. The organisers is doing a brilliant job, and I have nothing but positive things to say about this happening. A huge thanks to Slevik IL for making this into such a great competition.

It's a very social event, as many from the running venue show up each year. If you're reading this and have never tried Oslos Bratteste I would state you've missed out. However, it is not to late. The 2013 race is still to come, and I will most likely be there then as well.

I was about to write "I didn't push myself that hard, and could have gone faster" for this year's race. Then I checked the 2010 report where I stated "Did it more as a training session than a race.", and the 2011 report where I wrote "Personally I was not at all satisfied with the result as I felt I had heaps more to give after I finished.". The thing is, with these types of races my legs get tired (keyword: lactat) before I get completely puffed out. So no, I'm not sure if I could have gone that much faster. I ran exactly as fast as I did, not faster nor slower, hence it's slightly irrelevant what "I felt" I could do. The track was harder this year compared to 2011, due to being wet and slippery. I ran about half a minute slower this time, but had a good feeling. Hence I'm not displeased at all, since running has been a pain lately.
