New Year, new parkrun PB πŸ’₯

I thought it was going to be really cold this morning so put on long leggings, mid weight base layer and micro fleece and took my gloves and bobble hat. 7 degrees! Hat and gloves stayed in the car and fleece came off after lap 1! But, don’t know if Dry January is to blame, 5k time 31.59 (first time ever below 32 mins πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ) and official time 32.25, which is ONE MINUTE AND FIFTEEN SECONDS faster than my last PB and 1 min 26 secs faster than last week. 338th out of 510 and 6th out of 12 in my age! 30 minutes I am coming after you πŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸƒβ€β™€οΈ

Thanks Cheeky! I wasn’t expecting that. I went out yesterday with hubby, as he wanted to restart his C25k journey, having been out for a month with a bad back, so did W3 R1, which was a gentle jog, but I still don’t risk going on consecutive days. When Strava said 3km in 18 minutes something, my competitive streak overtook me and I thought maybe I could do it. So elatedπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ

Thanks Jonathan! Taken me about 4 months to get from 34 to 32, so might take a few more weeks. Going in the right direction πŸ˜ƒ

Great work Sandie, keep chipping away at it and you'll get to 30 and below very soon! 😁

Thanks! Seemed to take for ever to get below 33 and then it all just happened! Think it might take a few more weeks take off another 2 minutes though. Still, onward and upward πŸ˜ƒ
