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.
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.
Who would have thought that you could get an awful cold from air conditioning. I’ve suffered all week, I’m still up most of the night coughing. I’m on a course of steroids, antibiotics, antihistamines and a Ventolin inhaler. So obviously I can’t even think about running at the moment. I’ve missed 3 parkruns in a row due to Holidays and being sick. But today I’m going to go, my cocker spaniel Ruby and I will walk parkrun today. Weather is awful again. Drizzle drizzle drizzle. I’ll put on a rain coat and brave the day. Have a lovely run everyone.
Hope you feel better soon damienair
Better to be ill in bad weather Damien….you don’t waste nice days that way. It doesn’t surprise me that air conditioning can carry colds……and legionella of course if it’s not properly maintained. Get well soon.👍
Oh Damien, how miserable. Chase those bugs away and tell them not to return. Hope you’re back up and running for next weekend. 🤞
Sorry to hear Damien. Well at least a walked parkrun is better than no parkrun...
So sorry to hear you’re still feeling bad Damien, fingers crossed you start to heal soon!
Sorry to hear you are still not well damienair. Well done for getting to parkrun anyway.
Oh no Damien! How miserable, I hope you are able to get back out there soon. Are there any air purifiers? Maybe you can suggest some get put in if this is a common thing? Well done getting out there 👍
I hope you feel better soon. Well done for still going and walking it 👌🏻
