Not the week I had planned last week started of ok then got a sore throat and had to take it easier for the rest of the week. But hoping this week will be better. Happy running you all.

I have had a "disjointed" few weeks of running lately. This past week I have had to wear a blood pressure monitor and an ECG halter for 24 hours each - but I have done a couple of 1 hour plus run/walks and did a reasonably quick parkrun last Saturday - will do a couple of temp paced sessions this week - probably half Klm repeats and then we are off to Norfolk Island for a week ( for my 70th birthday) - should be some nice scenic runs over there. I plan on running to some beaches and wife will follow in the rental car :)

Tomorrow I'll be running in a new running group that's just started in my village. I went last week and had a lovely run around with the fellow beginners. I'll be back to my home parkrun on Saturday after 4 weeks away and, depending on how that goes, I might do another 10k on Sunday just to prove I can do it again! 😀

I've just found out that my local Parkrun has moved from a course I wouldn't contemplate before to one that sounds much better. I've had a look at the times and there are people who come in around my time as well. Might go along on Saturday as a Parkrun virgin...

Go for it. I did my first ParkRun on holiday exactly one week after finishing C5K and loved it. I have only managed to get to my local one once since then but that was good too. In the meantime I have been building my stamina so hope to get to another one soon. Everyone is so friendly

Thanks for the recommendation. That makes me feel more positive. I'll let you all know :)

What a lovely day. We are still getting up early following the 2 hour time change from Sicily, so I was out at about 8.30.

After running Stepping Stones on Monday I decided to run the B10K week one just once more before progressing to week 2 and changed the route a bit just to try and extend the distance so that I don't have to keep running loops in the meadow now that the grass is getting frosty.

I returned to a road that I ran in the early weeks of C5K and was surprised to find it is not as steep as I remembered, in fact not steep at all!

I found this run very easy, I wasn't desperate for the one minute walk intervals and probably ran about 6k after deducting the walking sections.

I kept my jacket on, but the hat then the gloves soon came off.
