My 6th Parkrun β˜€οΈπŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸŽ‰

Six weeks ago I graduated C25K at parkrun with a time of 37:45 which I was chuffed with.

Today I got round in 33:30 and I’m so pleased I had to share.

As you can see from this finish line photo it definitely wasn’t easyπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Enjoying my running in the cooler weather especially when the sun shines β˜€οΈπŸ.

Happy running everyone 😊

Great time and nice photo of you jlw34, you look so happy but a little tired on the photograph, I ran a 5k in about the same time and understand why it wasn't easy, well done. 😊

Great action photo jlw! πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

My parkrun was definitely not a PB as I ran it wearing an elephant onesie. Yep. πŸ˜…πŸ˜…πŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸ˜πŸ˜

I don’t think I’d manage it. I hate getting too hot πŸ₯΅ hence a vest whatever the weather πŸ˜‚

Me too as a rule! I was the closest to giving in and walking than any run I’ve ever done - but I didn’t! Phew! πŸ˜…πŸ…πŸ˜…

Well Done jlw34, and a great time too. I think sallenson used to describe that as an athletic sheen. Let the Parkrun PBs continue.

Well done, great run πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘ I’ve gradually improved from 35.13 to 33.25 over 8 parkruns. Would still like to break the 30 barrier!

Congratulations on your time too πŸ‘πŸ»πŸŽ‰

Me too Sandie but I think that is a way off for me. Under 33 is my next target, hopefully by Xmas. πŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸ₯΅

I’ve stopped consciously chasing the 5k time and have started ju-ju’s Magic 10 plan, as everybody says as you increase distance, you naturally get faster. Think I’m built for distance rather than speed πŸ˜‚

I only graduated C25K 5 weeks ago so thinking of starting the Magic 10 after Xmas.

Good luck with your journey πŸ‘πŸΌ

I have to say that the last 14 weeks have transformed my life after all my life saying I could never run.
