Parkrun PB

Ran a pb at Parkrun yesterday. 🎉🎉 Soo motivated by this. As some of you know I’m racing 10K next week and am struggling with stamina/distance etc so this for me was a huge boost.

I didn’t run it the whole way round as I just can’t seem to at the moment but did it in segments of 10 min chunks with a break in between. Am hoping to do this for the 10 and come in with a fairly decent time.

Either way, mentally I’m feeling much better about it - woo hoo! 🏃‍♀️

Well done. Worry ye not. Breaking it down as you describe - mentally and physically - will get you round. Add to that, the race day buzz, also helps immensely. New sights and sounds all make you more alert

Have fun 😃💪👍🏃‍♀️🏅
