2nd parkrun and new PB!

Did run in 37.59 which is 38 secs quicker than last week I can't my head around time because I felt it was so much slower Last week there was group of 30 sh at end and as I was in middle always felt part of run Today I was 2 nd last (80fewer runners) and after about 5mins I was wayyyyyy at back and last 3rd couldn't even see any runners so sort of felt I was just out for a run on my own No music or watch so hadn't clue time but thought ok you ARE going to run whole way and just enjoy it Husband brought 2 grandchildren along to watch and kids ran last wee bit with me so that and their cheering made huge difference. Made me realise why I started running and I felt so good Was nervous about today cos thought last week was a fluke but now think ill be ok about doing parkrun in future. For anyone thinking about doing a park run I say go for it Its fabulous feeling

  • Well done, that's a great result and so lovely that your grandchildren were there to run a bit with you at the end and cheer you on. I managed to knock 18 seconds off my PB today bringing it to 37:44 but like you I felt I wasn't running particularly well - very strange!

  • Thanks and well done to you too
