This weeks long run was a shorter one at 4 miles (6.44km). This is because I have a 10km race next Sunday so I need to retain some energy for that.
My Dad ran W8R1 at the same time as me, I expected to complete our runs at about the same time but when I finished he was still running, I was sure I didn't get my maths that wrong so I was confused while I was warming down. When he finished he was wearing a grin and told me he kept running until he reached 5km in 31:16! I think everyone now knows where I get my drive from!
I am tempted to push him into running a 30 min 5km in next weeks Parkrun now! I am sure he can do it when he is running with everyone else.
Thanks for all your kind words after yesterday's Parkrun.
