New Park Run today for me and my lad....in....Peterborough ( up North)...
It was fab...we were staying with my Dad and stepmum in Elton and it was really nearby...
So off we all went, and eventually found it ( avec bag with teain flask ( green), custard creams, mini jelly baby's, water etc etc). The talky talk was good as they segrgated off anyone new and explained the route, ' blah blah..2 times, or was that 3? blah blah..nesting swans...blah blah...I was focussed on her outfit...sheep with bunny ears....cute! One woman was positively 'Playboy' and I thought, 'good for you babes'
So then we walked for ever...I chatted to a nice man...Gave Leon a high five...then off....It was really pretty, all round a lake thing and I decided to do Speed again as it paces me and gives structure!!!! Blimey, we went round the lake thing about 4 flipping times....Lovely as Dad, and family were shouting at me after each lap which I'm not used to....
Leon did it in 25.24...he was gutted as didn't do under 25...and I did it in 28.14...happy panther....( easliy pleased!)
Now I just need a 24k route near Elton for tomorrow...v sore hip but I'm running through...its fine ( never ever stop unless you are actually injured)
I cannot wait for the Paris Marathon next year when I will be running complete
