Parkrun first time

Well after a bad 4 weeks leading up to Christmas (Hip pain followed by chest infection severely hampered my training) I have just completed my first 5km parkrun with a self recorded time of 29:50. Very happy with that and glad a I did the parkrun, a great atmosphere and the peer pressure helps to keep me going when I may have eased back had I been running solo.

  • wow well done , would love a time like that, have not got bellow 34 mins for 5kms yet.

  • That's a great time, well done! :-)

    I too am another one still dreaming of under 33 minutes, let alone under 30 but will get there in the end (just wasn't to be on Christmas Day parkrun and I am working early shift today :-( )

  • Thanks, I am sure running in a group helped me push that little bit harder.


  • That's brilliant ! Well done . I'd be a very happy women if I could do them times . Congratulations .

  • Gordon Bennet Sinbad, that's incredible. Well done indeed. 29'50 is a titanic time to be proud of. I have yet to try a ParkRun as I enjoy the solitude on my outings, but perhaps one day....

    WELL DONE once again!

  • Super sonic Sinbad - well done !

  • Well done and keep up the good work.
