I’ve started! Juju’s Magic 10k plan - W1R1 - was my 3rd Parkrun at Birkenhead this morning. 😀🏃♀️❤️
Set off wondering what was going to happen, with a niggling right knee, tweaked right hip and twinging right lower back... Thankfully all these things weren’t related to running, and didn’t seem to mind me trying to run 5k. The very late, very large anniversary dinner we ate out last night was more of an issue though - so no food 2 hrs before today, and not much sleep but plenty of antacids last night! Perfect preparation then...😂😂😂
Surprisingly, despite feeling I was struggling more today, I still ended up with another PB, and came in at 28min 27sec. We were talking about the power of running as a group, and I really think it does make me go faster. I love that loads of the volunteers along the course at Birkenhead bring bells / tambourines (and last week even drums!) to encourage us along if we’re flagging!
Just after getting home, the postman delivered my C25k graduation present - my graduation Tshirt! Will be wearing this proudly as my club T-shirt next week! (You can’t really read it in the photo, but it even says nhs.uk under the logo - so it’s just for our NHS version of C25k too.)
PS I don’t really have a double chin, but my husband refused to get up off the couch to take the picture. (I can’t be too rude about him sitting on any couch, though, as he just ran today’s Parkrun in about 22mins...I’m realising he’s always going to come in about 6 mins faster than me however many PBs we both get!)
Glad to see everyone else doing Parkruns today seems to have had fun too! 😀🏃♀️🏃♂️❤️😎
