Happy New Year to everyone.
Despite being up till 1.00 this morning seeing in the new year with Jools Holland and bubbly, UpTheStanley and I set off for parkrun at the usual time. We walked along the prom with someone in a great outfit with multi coloured wig who’d arrived from the Isle of Wight having been told it was fancy dress today. It wasn’t but there’s always someone in fancy dress celebrating an anniversary run so no one thought it strange.
Before the briefing, the bagpipes played Auld Lang Syne and we had a good singalong.
It was a bit chilly but a very light wind , the sea looked calm and the sky was beautiful. What a great day to be doing a parkrun.
Dressed in my new leggings given by my speedy niece I felt good as I ran along the prom surrounded by dogs and kept a fairly even pace. I felt the beginnings of a stitch in k5 so tried to breathe deeper and slower while maintaining pace. UpTheStanley met me at 250m to go and supported me in , at his vocal best. I really went for it in those last few metres!
Yippee, new year, new PB 32:13 parkrun time. My New Year’s resolution is to get sub 30 eventually but sub 32 is the next step.
Keep enjoying your running everyone, and stay healthy.
