I Dad graduated C25K this week so I encouraged him to join me for today's Parkrun. I have a 10km race tomorrow so I told him we could run together and I would try and push him a bit to run a faster time.
As with most people who run with others the first time we set out and ran a fast first km, 5:36, and then slowed down gradually. We walked for 100m in the 5th km because the start was a bit too fast. However we finished in 31:03 which is a minute faster than the first 5km that my Dad ran.
I have three more weeks until my half marathon and I run all my long runs on Sunday. So the next three Parkruns will be slower ones for me, hopefully I can bring my Dad along and enjoy a few runs with him!
