I did my first Park Run this morning, the first of many I think, the park route was good and there’s something nice about running with a group of people, its more of an event than just another run. Also, I’m a bit competitive so I now want to beat my time and move up the rankings in my age category!
I wasn't expecting a personal best as I had to cycle 4 miles to get there but I did it in 30 minutes and 4 seconds, my fastest 5k so far. I’m just five seconds from beating my target of doing a 5k in under 30 minutes so I’m hoping I’ll break that next week!
The only downside was that for some bizarre reason my right trainer rubbed the side of my foot and I now have quite a sore foot. I've never had a problem with these trainers before and I've probably done a hundred miles in them. I'm at a bit of a loss as to why I've suddenly got a problem.
