“Were you coming here to stand?” A guy in yellow Adidas jacket asked and we all moved closer together, towards the middle of the road. Apparently, in the presence world’s big marathon winners in the group, no one wanted to be the first to speak and give out instructions regarding the program for the morning.
Another guy suggested that we should take the tarmac road because it had rained the previous night and the other roads would be muddy. The majority agreed, and so we were going to go out for ten kilometers and come back the same route making it a twenty kilometer run. No one spoke about the pace, but everyone knew that it was Monday, and as usual it was to be a hard run.
