As yet I have only done my c25k training runs and am thinking of doing my first park run this month. I have managed 4.88k 3 times before a calf strain and 4.64km twice after my calf strain. I have read that the race buzz can make you go a bit further or faster and wondered if the extra boost might be enough to push me to 5k in 30 minutes? I would love to hear from those of you who have had a real race experience? Thanks for listening Mateys.
