First parkrun since hurting my foot 3 weeks ago and I returned to the scene at Doddington Hall! 29.42 (only 15 seconds slower than last time when I was shooting for a PB) and 2nd in my age group out of 13. Woohoo! Oh yes, and another 5k for team HU. Go us πŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸƒπŸ»β€β™‚οΈπŸƒπŸ»πŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸƒπŸ»β€β™‚οΈπŸƒπŸ»

Congratulations on that sub 30 minute 5k at parkrun this morning and your contribution to the Vitality Running World Cup which I am also taking part in with the HU team, I wasn't at a parkrun today but ran a 6K around a off road route near to where I live.

Thanks Al. Only a week to my half marathon. Eek 😬 Well done on your off road run - not something I’ve done much of. Perhaps I should add it to the list for when it’s hopefully drier later in the year πŸ€”

I know plenty of unclassified roads near to where I live, only a 10 minute walk away from the countryside where I do a lot of cycling, however, since I have started running within the last two years I prefer to run off road, even on quite roads there are still cars that could bump into a runner.

Good luck for your HM next week.

Don’t worry, I don’t go anywhere that fast on hills either!

Feels like that would be a big change in a short period 🀞

It would, but it does feel as though the world is going mad πŸ€ͺ

Agreed.....toilet papergate for a start πŸ™„

Sandie1961Graduate10 in reply to Beachcomber66

Indeed - where did that one come from? Unless people are using toilet paper instead of tissues πŸ˜‚

Nice one!

Well done Sandie1961, sounds like a great run this morning and very speedy! Glad to hear your foot is good to go for your HM. Is it a nice route somewhere scenic?

Sandie1961
Sandie1961Graduate10 in reply to Debston

It’s Hampton Court Palace - starts in front of the palace, runs along the Thames and finishes in the Palace gardens. Should be lovely!

That sounds like a wonderful route. Hope the weather is good for you!

That foot hasn’t held you back Sandie. Your body probably just enjoyed the rest for a week or so.

It will be about 6 weeks for me.

Sandie1961Graduate10 in reply to Dexy5

Oh dear, that’s a long time. Sounds like Southampton is in doubt for running?

You can keep Mr Sandie and Ben company and bag a table in the cafe then πŸ˜‚

Brilliant Sandie, so glad your foot is better and what a great time. Hampton Court Palace - what an amazing route, hope this blasted virus doesn’t ruin it for you all. 🀞x

Sandie the Superwoman back in action again! πŸ‘ŠπŸƒβ€β™€οΈ I’m so glad your foot is behaving, and it sounds like the timing is just right for your HM next week

Like you, I have a week to go to mine. Bath is still on at the moment, we’re keeping everything tightly crossed. Yikes, it’s getting very very real isn’t it? πŸ¦‹πŸ¦‹πŸ¦‹πŸ¦‹
