Third run of the week - I think I'll have the weekend off!

Another run with the lunchtime club at work, although not many members seem to show up!

I ran with young Wesley as Matt the coach was stuck in meetings, so I didn't know what to expect. Glad to say that I didn't embarrass myself with this whippersnapper, knocked another second off my average pace for this route and got my best 1k time yet.

That's my third run since Monday, all about the same distance and time, so I think I'll take the weekend off before my sparrow legs fall off.

Happy weekend to you all :)

Now I've got an image of Johnny Depp as Jack Sparrow with skinny little legs in runner's shorts speeding down the street. I don't know if I should laugh or scream 😲😂....Thanks a lot Mike 😄

Hey, good pace! I find I need two rest days sometimes with these longer runs, but then Im an old person.

Thanks Flick. I like to have at least one rest day, or two is ideal, but Thursday and Friday are ideal days as I can run while my daughter is in gym and during lunchtime. I certainly felt the pain in Friday night!
