B210KW5R1 - Bedford Park Run

Morning chaps / chapesses

Lovey park run this morning. Had no one to go with, so took more discipline to drag myself out and get ready.

Last night we had a boys curry night - lots of spicy food, lots of beer.....

Running 5k after a curry night is 1) not easy & 2) appears to have given me a new PB! (Strangely) πŸ˜‚ πŸ’¨ πŸ’¨ Official times to follow but Strava appears to like a Dansak!

No real niggles, few grumbles but otherwise ok!

Have a fantastic Saturday / weekend my VRB’s

πŸƒβ€β™‚οΈπŸŒ

Edit: Official time - 34.59

Nice one Mitch!!

Is B210KW5R1 a Star Wars character tho? It's quite difficult to say, especially after a beer'n'curry night :-)

Congratulations - it could have been all too easy to give it a miss. I slept too late for my park run (5 days away with 3 young children was very tiring apparently!) and my preparation yesterday was also not ideal (6 hours sitting in a car) but also a pb for me - 34.14. Those numbers look amazing don’t they!! People are sick of me going on and on about this app (but some are actually trying it πŸ‘πŸ»)

Cracking time Sybil - I very nearly did my run tonight instead, but I’m glad I got up and out of the way early! Well done! 😍

Early works for me! I’m not far from Bedford but if I can’t make my local run it’s unlikely I’ll join you although it would be nice to meet another C25Ker in person rather than a VRB

I’ve only ever run at the Bedford one. I’m near to a few others as I live east of Bedford.... but it’s just the one I started at. Might try wimpole or St Neots soon...

Always welcome to give me a shout if you want and I’m doing the Bedford twilight 10k in two weeks.... so I’m always around.... shuffling along

I’ve heard about the wimpole one. Think that would be great but I’m not really an early bird!! Off on a month long travels soon so might struggle with my runs. Will see what October brings. May need to reverse my journey!

Thank you Fab! Was a bit of a struggle midway because someone moved where I thought half way might be (it was only 2k). Those damn gremlins!! Pleased to keep going - it was less than a minute quicker than thursdays run and I walked part of that!!! πŸ˜†

Well done loungelizaard. I learnt that a curry night was detrimental to my running ability this week. Won’t be doing that again. Well done on your time after all that.

Lol - I don’t believe the curry helped at all aside from a little extra propulsion πŸ’¨ πŸ˜‰

Brilliant Mitch! I decided to do my longer run today instead of PR. You'll be breaking the 30 min barrier soon at this rate πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

Think I'd have been too tempted to stay in bed! Well done for making it out for a curry-fuelled run :-)
