I tried to go to a Parkrun a bit of a drive away but realised I’d forgotten my waterproof. It was forecast to rain all day. Turned round and drove home. Finally found it folded up into its little pocket, exactly where I’d dropped it and wondered if I could still make it to my closest park run. I did and it was terrifically muddy, perfect for my new trail shoes 👟 . I started near the back and went as slowly as I could which was difficult with everyone in front racing away. When Runkeeper told me my pace for the first 5mins I knew I was going too fast, but I had also decided to aim for a sub 35min time. I did tire and probably had entirely ‘positive splits’, which of course is a negative thing not a positive thing. Oops.
Then I forgot to turn Runkeeper off until a couple of mins after I’d finished my run so I had to wait for my email to arrive with my time.
33.50. Every km was sub 7 mins!!! First time ever! One happy pink runner. Didn’t need my waterproof, it didn’t rain. Went to the cafe and chatted to other runners. I’ve had a lovely day 😊
