Being the Bank Holiday weekend I was free from my regular routine of taking my son to Rugby Tots on a Sat morning so decided to run the Lyme Park Parkrun.
Gauging from my effort I suspected I'd gone out a bit too fast at the start but that didn't stop a runner pushing a buggy past me! Settled down into a "comfortable but hard" effort and relaxed into the run and was hoping to catch a veteran runner, who was occasionally taking a breather on the ascents, at the end where the course finishes with a gradual up grade of about 7% on average. Alas whilst my quarry was in sight my legs just didn't have much left in them and I got myself home in a time of 32:19. Still I beat my previous time by 8secs
