Lovely sunny Parkrun

Good run at Saturday's PR with nephew, was a warm one, but being well hydrated felt good, just the watch to click on and off at start & finish, and a nice cup of lemon & ginger tea and good chat afterwards.. with nephew telling me he thinks it's another Pb! Which it was, under 24 mins! 🙇.... he works very hard with his running club during the week, so is well deserved.. No such luck for me! But am I bothered?? Not really! 😊

Love the ParkRun! Well done to you and your nephew too. If I could get anywhere near 30 minutes I’d be happy, let alone in the 20s 😂

My nephews 44, he started doing PR nearly 2 years ago and done one just about every week, now completed about 90 runs, when he first started them his times were in the lower 30s. which plateaued for a while at just under 25 mins, then he joined a running club which motivated him to run further and faster to stay with the other runners, which is what he wanted, allthough a tad tiring at first it's paid off..
