First Parkrun with my Garmin today and used the 'pace' feature to help improve my time. Last time but one, I was being harried by another guy and that got me doing sub 5 minute km. I didn't sustain it but for a short while I had the idea that I might, just might, get a sub-25 minute time. Now that would be something else!
So today, I tried to use the Garmin to go for 5mins splits all the way. And it worked. My previous PB was 25 minutes 22, Today? 24 mins 33.
Mind you, my 'Parkrun Extra' where I try to do the Parkrun again in the reverse direction took over half an hour. So what I gained on the first five, I lost in the second. But I reckon that can be worked on ...
