This morning I again joined my Southsea running buddies Dexy5 , UpTheStanley , Oldgirlruns , Coddfish and Mr C for their weekly (not) parkrun escapade. For those of you who haven't been paying attention 😜, this involves separate runs near to the Southsea course, meeting up afterwards at a local cafe for whatever you fancy!
So having made my way southwards to the Southsea prom from my stamping ground in the north of Portsmouth, the plan was to start my 'out and back' into the wind (a light north-westerly today) and then to make the most of it helping me back on the second leg. I started my run just before 9.00, heading westwards towards Clarence Pier where I turned around.
I noticed via quick glances at my watch that my pace seemed a bit variable and finished in a relatively swift 27.18, two seconds faster than last week's (not) parkrun. However when I then looked at my route (see screenshot), I realised that my Garmin had decided that a quick dip was the order of the day!
We all retired to the Southsea Beach Cafe for breakfast (or in my case cake as breakfast had been at 6.30!) and an excellent time was had by all!😀
