Feeling elated from my new PB at parkrun on Saturday, today was my first attempt at 7k. I decided to run in the same park, thinking I could do the parkrun route and add on a bit more to get me to 7k. I already knew the marshals do a fantastic job every Saturday; now I realise just how much I rely on them. I set off the right way, but ended up seeing parts of the park I’d never seen before! 😂 Never mind. I listened to Mr Strava to make sure I covered the distance and I found my way back following the signs back to the visitor centre.
I ran with the three tenors again today. They certainly seem to inspire me to keep going even when it feels tough.
Today was the first time I’ve run after work, rather than early morning. I think I prefer running in the morning, but not sure I want to get up early enough to run 7k+ before I go to work!
Anyway, I’m now feeling a huge of achievement. 7k!! Me!! Really!!
