22 up and 8 down. It was a very nice feeling to run in the woods without anything to do with the map. Pure joy.

5.700 / 270 / 18. Pretty good training course, exactly what I needed. Not too long, not too hilly, not too boring. Went out to survive the course, but actually felt quite OK from control 5 and a the first hill (mountain?). Downhill was quite horrible as usual, as my legs are not yet used to neither downhill running, nor to running in terrain. Both of my soles are still quite dead in fact. In the flat parts, it felt better and better, and in some parts, I was in fact able to push (to a certain amount of course). The last uphill (with about 80 m climb) was mostly walking of course, but who cares.
In the end, I turned out to be victorious, by under a minute from a bunch of people. Does it mean, that I developped 1 minute in 2 weeks? :) And what I'm most proud of, is that I enjoyed (almost) every minute of it.
The bad thing is, that I only managed to beat Száva by 20%. I think, we both have to develop through the coming weeks. I believe a sub-42 would have been enough for an "A"-final in the Hungarian Champs, while the cut-off for the "B" would have been 48'. But I made no mistake.
I'm hungry to run more!
