I ran 7k a few weeks ago so decided to give 8k a go today. Decided to do the park run route as firstly it is all flat and secondly it would help me psychologically knowing it was 3 and a bit times round the park whereas park run is just twice round. After a few mishaps with new leggings that kept falling down, headphones tangling up and pulling my head down, I managed to sort it all out and start running. The park is beautiful and I kept meeting other smiling runners, running in the opposite direction. It was probably my best run to date. I took it steady but managed a fairly even pace all the way round and did it in just over 53 mins. It does make a difference having a flat route! I even felt I had more energy after 5k so I must be improving. Enjoy your running! 😊
