How did your parkrun or (not)parkrun go?

damienair profile image
damienairModerator

Hello Everyone and happy weekend. Today is parkrun day, a free 5K event which takes place every Saturday morning all around the world. It is for everyone, slow, fast, able, disabled, big, small and everyone in between. Oh and don't forget about the super Mum's and Dad's who push their babies in buggies. You can walk, jog, run, run/walk, it's not a race, just a run in the park and loads of us here on Bridge to 10K do it religiously every Saturday morning.

parkrun is back thankfully in most Countries around the World. I am hoping for any Countries still struggling with COVID-19 that it returns to you soon.

Some of us may not be able to do a parkrun at the moment so until parkrun returns fully for everyone some of us will continue to take part on our own in a Virtual parkrun every Saturday morning called a (not)parkrun. Or if you are away on Holidays, prefer to run on your own, or do not have a parkrun close by you a (not)parkrun is perfect, please feel free to join in.

Please post a little run report after your parkrun or (not)parkrun and let everyone know how you got on. The little run report can be done over a post parkrun coffee and treat/cake. (parkrun is all about the after run coffee and cake, and meeting friends old and new).

If you are a new graduate and would like to start, all you have to do is run, walk or jog at a parkrun or a 5K run/jog/walk (not)parkrun anytime today or tomorrow and write a little run report under this post. It's like a little community and it is good fun, sets you up nicely for the weekend. If you want to you can register on the parkrun website and you can log your 5K (not)parkrun. In fact you can log any 5K done during the week as a (not)parkrun.

For anyone whom has not done a real parkrun yet and if it is available to you, give it a try. It is the most wonderful community event. Saturday mornings will never be the same again.

Looking forward to hearing from all of you who ran in real proper parkruns and (not)parkruns. Happy running and have a lovely weekend.

Hi everyone. Posting this a little earlier as I am going to an inaugural parkrun tomorrow morning with Oisin and my fellow Navan parkrun tourist friends. A little gaggle of us are going to the first running of a parkrun which is not too far away, 30-40 minutes away. Looking forward to it. Happy running everyone.

Hi damienair (not) park runners and park runners,

Back at park run for me this week. I’ve had a couple of easy weeks due to a knee niggle. I was determined to not go crazy but go up to fourth gear🤣. Official park run time 28:24. Hubby ran 24:24 ❤️🏃‍♀️🏃🏻‍♂️

Hi Damien and all Parkrunners. Good to read about your runs and the cool, but dry weather beckoned to me yesterday. So off to the park I went, just a day early. I followed the Park run route and managed a steady, non stop 5 k. I was very pleased and satisfied with that as I'd not run for 11 days. I felt quite high afterwards and as a result couldn't help asking myself why on earth I haven't been running at every opportunity - it's always worth it!May that elusive bird of encouragement fly onto your shoulders too! - best wishes ☺️

No parkrun for me this morning as I needed to do a taxi run to the station, so it's been 3 (not) parkruns this week. Following last Sunday's GSR I had 2 black toes and one dodgy toenail (will it won't it drop off?), so stuck to 5ks on Tuesday(32.47), Thursday (31.32) and earlier this morning (29.29).

Hope you all enjoyed your parkruns this morning!😀

Ooch JonathanP. UpTheStanley permanently has black toes but mainly due to hockey.

cheekychipmunksGraduate10 in reply to JonathanP

Arghh black toenails JonathanP 😩 Hope your indecisive one makes its mind up soon. There’s nothing nice about finding a toenail in your sock! I must admit though, I haven’t had one for ages. Mine even survived my HM and GSR. Weird because I used to get them regularly. 🤷‍♀️

JonathanPGraduate10 in reply to cheekychipmunks

Thanks Cheeky - I wasn't very surprised as those 2 had been bruised previously. Seem to have settled down now - at least for the time being!🤞

TailChaser profile image
TailChaserGraduate10 in reply to JonathanP

I like the negative splits on your series of 5ks JP! Probably much more than your black toenails tbh! Strange I'm only finding out about these with my running friends now, as I've never (*touch wood*) had the problem. Hope it makes its mind up soon.

Hi Damien and everyone! Ooo an inaugural PR, that’s fun. Hope it went well. 😀

Jenny and I went back to Eastville this morning. Only my 2nd time running there since PR opened up after covid, and my first time running the A course since before the first lockdown! We’ve been doing lots of tourism of late, so it was about time.

Its hills don’t get any easier either! 😂😅 The weather was perfect though, and my time of 36:23 was my 3rd quickest at Eastville out of the 35 occasions I’ve run it. Jenny’s time was 31,40.

My Garmin is fired though. I plugged it in to charge yesterday evening (it was definitely charging) and it said battery low on the way in this morning. 😱 It was on 1%, so I used Strava by itself which did work thankfully. Took a while to work out how to stop it, so my Strava time was 36:30. It’s usually the other way round.

Hope you all had great runs folks. 🥰

I presume 'fired' is a euphemism for something else Cheeky! 😜 Nice to get back to the A course I'm sure.

Good morning all, timekeeping again this morning and 🤞it seems to have gone smoothly. No twitchy fingers or double dabbing this week. Katnap and I are down for shadow Run Directors in two weeks time, feeling more scared for that but keep telling myself it’s good to get out of my comfort zone…Lots of peeps volunteering today doing the Winter Series big hill run tomorrow so I’ve had a ton of advice and I know I’ll be amongst friends which will make it much easier. 😀

Hope you’ve all had great runs today and have a fab runny week 💪👍👍👍

cheekychipmunks profile image
cheekychipmunksGraduate10 in reply to TailChaser

Yay for the volunteers TC! We had our now normal threat of no PR this week as we didn’t have enough marshals or timekeepers until the 11th hour. I get pretty cross as there are LOTS of regular runners who don’t step up. 😠 You guys will make awesome RDs by the way! 👏👏👏👏

TailChaser profile image
TailChaserGraduate10 in reply to cheekychipmunks

Thank you cheeky, I think once the first one is out of the way we’ll be ok. I just get so nervous wanting to get it all right. We had someone from HQ running today so I hope we all made a good impression. I just hope we’re not RDing if PSH turns up!I reckon at least 75% of the regulars don’t volunteer. I thought we didn’t have issues getting volunteers but having kept up with the day to day messages now, even we seem to struggle.

Dexy5 profile image
Dexy5Graduate10 in reply to cheekychipmunks

Goodgym helped us out this week so we didn’t have to do a volunteer plea, but I’ve been to Portsmouth Lakeside and they’ve said at the pre-run briefing that it can’t happen unless 3 people forego their run to marshal. Far better to volunteer in advance and wear warm clothes.

cheekychipmunks profile image
cheekychipmunksGraduate10 in reply to Dexy5

Our RD asked very politely for people to volunteer as early as they can in the week (or even further in advance) to avoid the angst of having to send a begging email on a Friday. 🙄

TailChaser profile image
TailChaserGraduate10 in reply to cheekychipmunks

Just to make it a little more tricky, we had a few drop out at the last minute. I think there always a begging email every Friday. Hopefully as the DofE's get going we'll get more filled up.

Good morning Damien, this morning was my 26th parkrun, today it was at Drumpellier Country Parkrun, I was 116th out of 162 parkrunners with a time of 31.27 and just made the 60%+ age grading with 60.25%, the weather was quite bright with a temperature of around 10C, so another nice run for all today., by the way, I have ordered a new 25 T-Shirt and the brand new Barcode bracelet, they may come before next weeks run when I hope to be at my home parkrun at Dunfermline

RunWillie profile image
RunWillieGraduate10 in reply to AlMorr

I got beaten today by a little lad wearing a 25 park run T-shirt. I reckon he was only around six. I thought it was awesome but my boys were embarrassed for me 🤣

AlMorr profile image
AlMorrGraduate10 in reply to RunWillie

Boys and girls can go out and run a sub 25 minute 5K without any training whatsoever, it just comes naturally to them, I am not sure why they are in an adults 5K run, they do have junior parkruns going for that age group but they are allowed to take part as long as they are with a parent.

Dexy5 profile image
Dexy5Graduate10 in reply to AlMorr

Junior parkrun is just 2k Al, so once they can run 5k it’s great that they can join parents on a Saturday. I was pipped to the finishing line by a sprinting junior today. Love it.

AlMorr profile image
AlMorrGraduate10 in reply to Dexy5

Although I was pleased with my time today Dexy, I was passed by a junior, a runner pushing a pram and a runner with a dog, as you say "love it", I did mention that I have now ordered the bran new Barcode Bracelet and a 25 T Shirt 👚

It does take a little time after a break such as lockdown to get back to running, do remember that I ran Damienair's virtual 5K runs which then continued as(not) parkruns during lockdown

TailChaserGraduate10 in reply to AlMorr

Thanks Cheekychipmunks, since my friend Keith from my Thursday morning walking group asked me to run with him on the final run of weeks 5,6 and 9 of C25K he has taken me to every parkrun in his car, we go to 3 in a three weeks rota, Stirling, Drumpellier and my home parkrun of Dunfermline, yes I may well be on fire as I have had a PB at all three of them, I am now waiting for my new 25 Parkrun T Shirt 👚 and that bran new Barcode Bracelet. 😊 Have a great day 👍

My second fastest parkrun this morning (not a big deal as I have only done 13), hindered by stitch after the 2nd loop meant I must have looked mighty funny coming past the funnel pulling weird shapes as I tried to shift it. I was joined by Katnap on my final lap as he was doing his cool down circuit. It seemed rude to ask him to slow down so I was nearly dead when I finished. It was great to have company though, that last lap can be a bit lonely on the bits between the lovely Marshals.

Morning all, done my 2nd Parkrun today once again at Watermead Country Park (very local to me, the start line is less than a mile from my front door!). I missed last week’s event due to having to work a night shift on the Friday night, so I was determined to get out today come what may.

Not been out since Monday due to a combination of lousy weather and the necessity of getting my car through its MOT test, so wasn’t entirely sure how it would go- I managed to avoid the bunching at the start this time, didn’t push too hard and kept a reasonable pace, I also managed to start the Strava app this time!

I’m waiting for my official time to come through, but this time I came in 130th place (131st last time!) and my Strava time was 27:46 (official time last time was 28:01). The event certainly seems to be picking up in popularity, seemed to be more people about today than there were 2 weeks ago! Hope everyone else had a successful run this morning wherever you were.

Good morning Damien and fellow runners.

Today was parkrun number 10 for me.

There was a much smaller field of runners at my local this week: just 61 (including tail walker). The paths were a little slippery in places from fallen leaves and moss.

I got to chat (before and after) with a lady from the Taunton area I'd overtaken on the S shaped hill climb just over a month ago who subsequently followed me on Strava.

I possibly didn't give myself enough warm up time at the start of the run before moving up the field of runners, which made the final lap that bit harder.

The lady in the mobility scooter was back this week, doing a circuit in the opposite direction to the runners, and actually replied to my "Good morning".

There was a guy running in military camouflage, with a camo backpack and safety boots. I got to overtake people on the S climb only on the first two laps. On the other laps I was on my own.

I completed in 28'50", an improvement of 7 seconds over my previous PB for this course, set last week. As often happens here there was a gap of over 20 seconds before and after my finishing time.

I'll be volunteering next week. I had been down as "Other" but after discussion with this week's Run Director it appears I'll be one of the two timekeepers.

Afternoon, all! Enjoyed reading the parkrun reports. I ran my 11th parkrun this morning and buoyed by my unusually successful 10K this week decided I could try pushing a little harder. I came in at 31:01, which is my fastest ever 5K! Big smile on my very red face :) Slightly alarmed by how high my heart rate was when I had a look at the watch afterwards, but I felt good. Don’t think I’ll push it quite that hard every time, however…

RunWillie profile image
RunWillieGraduate10 in reply to berrinio

I was laughing to myself this week that park run is the only run that I don’t even try and run at a conversational pace. Heavy breathing, high heart rate and totally uncomfortable for the whole 5k 🤭

nowster profile image
nowsterGraduate10 in reply to RunWillie

So true! My HR went up to 181bpm towards the end of the last lap today.

Sometimes you do need a harder short run amongst the longer easier ones.

However the most difficult thing today was getting my gloves off at the end so I could fish my barcode out of an inside pocket.

Good to have a laugh, no matter why at parkrun, it was sad to note that New Zealand haven't had a parkrun since 14th August because of Covid 19.

Hello everybody. UpTheStanley was Southsea Run Director today so he had nominated me for first timers briefing (my first time). We had 85 first timers to Southsea including about 10 new parkrunners and a barkrunner. All seemed to go well.

As you can imagine, there were lots of Great South Run T-shirts on display.

Conditions were perfect and I have to say , after running 10 miles, parkrun seemed quite easy this week I started further back and ran alongside some of my first timers before moving on, and didn’t much care about my time during the run. So I was surprised to see it was my 2nd fastest run this year (4 seconds slower) and I was 3rd in my age group. 32.32 on Garmin and 33.12 parkrun.

Next week we are tourists in Cardiff so it will be a PB whatever happens.

Still a bit injured and was ill for 10 days. When I said I might volunteer this week, Mrs R slapped me down "you've been ill in bed and you want to stand around in the cold at 9am on a Saturday." She is always right - even when she's wrong. I did walk one of my routes and my calf felt better for it. Maybe next week...

Hello folks.

I usually run to Pomphrey Hill ParkRun and back and help out as a volunteer when I'm there (clocked up about 15 volunteer sessions now). However, I was aiming to take it easy today so I drove there and did the run instead (only my second time running it).

Not sure how well the taking it easy went (Strava recorded a PB on the hill segment) but I did record my second best time.

We’re away for a late holiday and decided to do the Carlisle Parkrun. Very welcoming volunteers and fellow runners, three times round the park and a great time of 30:50. All in all, a lovely Saturday morning.

damienairModerator

Yesterday morning I ran my 79th parkrun at a brand new parkrun in a time of 31:11. I started at the back and the first Kilometer was very slow as the path was narrow and it was hard to pass out slower runners. But I was delighted with the finish time as I was taking it easy, my fitness is improving. It was lovely to do some parkrun tourism with some of my local parkrun friends. Post parkrun breakfast was in the community centre and was lovely.
