Just a quick post as its getting late and my bubble bath beckons! But i braved it tonight and did my first run of the "love Running" shop Tuesday night group, (organised by the friendly shop owners). Did persuade my friend to come too, they have a beginners(2 mile- ish), intermediate (3 mile -ish)and advanced group(4-5 mile), we went in the middle one. Everyone was welcoming and quite a few faces from parkrun, so not at all scary! must have been around 40 ish people there tonight. After a warm up round the car park we did the medium route which was 5.6 k, and took just under 40 mins. There is someone to keep an eye on the last people in each group, which was me and Tracy to start with, and he had just run the London marathon,i was impressed he was back to it already!!very well done, and he only started running last May! ( a bunch of people in the main group had done it-YAY!) he was very encouraging and i even made it up the little steep hill without stopping ! not a fast time but enjoyable and i will definitely go back now, hope to make it a regular thing! Came in about the middle of the group. So something new was positive and now i have a new activity to keep me motivated!!
Happy running everyone!
