What can I say?......Aggggh what’s going on?! I missed the start of Parkrun! No parking again. 😕 Looks like parking in the usual field area is going to be out of bounds for the foreseeable. I thought last week was due to an upcoming event (doh!) 🔨 . Yes, I know I can aim to get there even earlier, but I’d rather run on my own and have a much needed littlish lie in on a Saturday morning.
I’d given up on trying to find somewhere to squeeze the car in and was heading home. Mindful that all these people doing the same is a recipe for returning to a damage car. Luckily, I discovered a parking spot on my journey back. Close enough, I thought, that will do 😉. I started the NRC App and joined the Parkrun when they were on the second circuit!
I could have got a cheating time at Parkrun, the lady was quite insistent that I take a tag, but I stood my ground. It’s still my run! 😂 I had to carry on to finish the 35 minutes guided run. By the end, I had done 4.6k and thought about carrying on for the last 400, but the last stretch was uphill on grass and I felt that I was on the tipping point to the run not being enjoyable, so I decided that was enough. No big elation, but I avoided running in a torrential downpour which came not too long after. Though I’m still getting used to it, I don’t think I’m a winter running girl. Short and regular may work better to get me through the winter. 🤷🏽♀️
But, considering I was on my way home at one point, I won’t complain! I did it! 👍🏽
Happy running Runners!! ❤️
