Fairly uneventful today in that I remembered my barcode, Strava worked okay and I finished the run of 5k. It was another warm one but not quite as bad as last week and an onshore breeze so cooling without having to fight it.
I moved up from my usual place at the rear and chatted to a few people before the start. Then we were off. I never really know if I’m going too fast or slow at the beginning but at 500m Strava confirmed I was doing alright and I settled into a rhythm. I met UpTheStanley for a high five at the 2k point as usual so everything felt good. Then I decided to see if I could reach the person ahead and run at their pace and next thing I was overtaking. That happened a few times until I saw a lady in a neon orange top and 2 men behind her. The finishing line was ahead and I was catching up , I managed to overtake one man but the others heard me coming so we had a bit of a sprint finish. I didn’t catch them but we had a laugh about me improving their finishing times. Only 4 seconds between us. Parkrun has confirmed another PB for me but just love the way it gets me out of bed on a Saturday morning.
Now back to the couch to watch Wimbledon and footie. Decisions decisions
I hope everyone else is enjoying their day
