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.
Unfortunately I will not be doing a parkrun this weekend. I will however be doing a 10K hike over a mountain which I have wanted to do for a while. I’ll be doing the hike with my brother in law, Ruby my doggie and Ruby’s sister Molly. Have wonderful parkruns everyone.
Have fun! damienair 👍🏻
Crikey that sounds amazing and hard work too Damien. Enjoy the views at the top! 🏔 😍
Saw your hike on Strava damienair . It looks fab and, from my point of view, infinitely preferable to any Parkrun!
Thanks. It was fantastic. My max heart rate got up to 184. It was such a beautiful hike.
184?! Good grief, mine's gone to that and more when running up proper hills, but never when hiking. Well, at least afaik 🤔 Well done!
How beautiful damienair. Glad you enjoyed it.
Hope you enjoyed your hike, I love a good hike. 4th park run for me today ☺️
