B210K Ju-Juโ€™s plan complete

Hi all, I finished B210K this morning at Weymouth Parkrun ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™‚๏ธ My official result was 5K in 27:49 so very pleased with that. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ‘ I came 11th in my age group but I have moved up from VM50-54 to VM 55-59 with my birthday having been this week ๐ŸŽ‚so that might account for my improved age-related result ๐Ÿ˜‚

When I get back home Iโ€™m going to volunteer at my local Parkrun as a โ€œthank youโ€ to everyone there whoโ€™s got me this far ๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

Iโ€™m going to consolidate for a few weeks at 4/5/10K and Iโ€™ve entered my first timed race over 5 miles (8K) at the end of September so onwards and upwards from here ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ‘

Happy running everyone ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™‚๏ธ

Thanks Sutsha, I reckon volunteering is the least I could do ๐Ÿ˜Š

Iโ€™m not sure yet where this journey is going to take me, but itโ€™s not stopping at 10K, thatโ€™s for sure ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ‘

Wow that must feel so goooooood!

Yes, it certainly does! I reckoned the other runners would drag me round the course so I didnโ€™t bother with Strava updates through my earplugs. ๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ˜Š

Well done David, great time. I hope you remembered your bucket and spade, and had an ice cream to celebrate. I canโ€™t get over how quickly youโ€™ve all become 10k runners.

Enjoy your volunteering- itโ€™s great to be on the other side cheering everyone on too

Oh and happy birthday too

Thanks Dexy, I had a lovely time at the seaside and enjoyed my birthday with lovely meal! ๐ŸŒŠ๐Ÿ–

I canโ€™t believe either how quickly weโ€™ve got to 10K ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜Š I just followed the C25K mantra of slow and steady - except for the last outing anyway! ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜‚

Looking forward to volunteering - Iโ€™ve got a rough idea whatโ€™s involved having seen others doing it on my way round ๐Ÿ™‚

Just make a lot of noise and cheer everyone on and youโ€™ll do great. You get to chose your role on the roster - timekeeper is the most important and can be stressful if you get out of sync. I loved being at the turning cone but want to do tail wagger next time - it counts as a (slow) run and a volunteer.

Thanks, Iโ€™ll start off with cheering people on I think and see how I get on with that. Itโ€™s the volunteering version of โ€œslow and steadyโ€ ๐Ÿ˜‚
