After the debacle that was me going the wrong way on the Parkrun last week I actually managed it this week! I was debating all night whether to go this morning or not; so much so that I dreamt about it! In the end, when the alarm went off I just threw myself out of bed and got on with it. Husband and Dudley Dog came along for support and I was off. They have altered the route a little at the moment because the park is so swampy but I've still WRECKED my trainers with the muddy puddles! I was aware that I was a bit faster; running with other people makes you up your speed and I knew I was more tired than usual. In addition the return leg was right into the sun which I hate so I was a pink blob when I crossed the line at 31:49 - a PB for me on 5k which put me 69th out of 86! Pretty pleased with that for a first time. I'm still in awe of those running it in literally half the time. They must eat 3 Shredded Wheat (other stringy cereals are available)
