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.
Hi DamienairHope your day is going well. I've had a great week running. Managed my quest target of running 9k for the first time, and that has added to my highest Km week of c 27km total for the week exc tomorrow . It added up to a PB on Strava, yet to be confirmed on the PR site, probably a bit slower as there were a lot of runners today and I was a few seconds before going through the line, they all count!
My granddaughter and mum were also running today and I managed to keep them in sight!!!
And today was the first frost free morning and relatively dry too, a positive balmy 3.5°C.
Thank you Parkrun Sixfields Upton for getting the weekend off to a good start.
Update official time was 38.16 but some errors have crept in as my tag number was wrong by one!! Not sure how that could happen. Big turnout today c220.
Very well done on all your running during the week, your 9K and of course most importantly your parkrun this morning. Fantastic running and have a great weekend.
