Hi all, I ran a 5K road route then 2 laps of the Lloyd Parkrun circuit for 10K overall. I got round in 1:08:07 @ 6:49/km and a PB for 10K according to Strava πŸƒβ€β™‚οΈπŸ˜€πŸ₯‡

The children’s Parkrun was being held around the route so I was careful to keep out of their way πŸ™‚ Hope they’re all Parkrunners of the future!

Hopefully this will set me up nicely for my β€˜Switchback 5’ (5 mile, 8 km) cross country run in 3 weeks πŸƒβ€β™‚οΈπŸ€žπŸ€ž

Happy running everyone! πŸƒβ€β™‚οΈπŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸƒβ€β™‚οΈ

Thanks Sadie, I hope I’ll have done enough to get me through the cross country. 🀞I believe there’s a memento for finishing so that might count as my first bit of running bling! πŸ…πŸ‘

A great consolidation 10k David, and good to be running with the young ones too.

Thanks Dexy, the children run around part of the circuit in the opposite direction to adult Parkrun, so it was easy to keep out of their way. πŸ™‚

I’m not sure they’d want to use me as a role model though! 🀣

Good run David and great time! Definitely sounds like you are ready for the 5mile and the shiny bling at the end :) :)

Thanks Lorijay, I’ve still got 3 weeks to train so hopefully I’ve not bitten off more than I can chew! πŸ˜³πŸ™‚

After that it’s 3 weeks till the Croydon 10K so I’d like to be running over 10K regularly by then πŸƒβ€β™‚οΈ I’ll cross that bridge when I come to it. For now it’s all about the cross country πŸ™‚πŸ€žπŸ‘
