United V Liverpool and the whatever it’s called this year cup final beckons this afternoon, so I needed an active morning!
8am, one mile tempo run, and a 9 minute/mile pace target, so I figured I’d replace it with a 10 minute run at that pace to nail my training run and the first active 10. Absolutely freezing, hands suffered. Defrosted in the car. Combat pants back on, jacket on.
8:30 junior Parkrun setup, kids arriving, lots of kids today on a beautiful morning.
9:00 and I’m the tail walker... and I got my wish that the slowest kid did enough running for all 2k to qualify as brisk walking. At 1k my jacket had to come off... it’s very warm out there now.
10:00 back home... checked the app. 87 minutes walking, 33 brisk, 3 active 10s... job done!
Think I’ve earned my lazy afternoon.
