Parkrun no4!

And yes as the clock struck nine they were off!!! I was towards the beck again. It made no difference though as today I felt good in myself for the first time in ages. The temperature was much warmer than I expected for 9am and there was little in the way of a breeze. On the hills my bottom muscles (doing hill sprints at the moments) were killing me.. I was listening to Laura on the stamina podcast and doing my best to keep to the pace. I was exhausted and felt a bit like a baked potato! Even though I felt like giving up after the first K I fought to keep moving. I didn't loose sight of people today. I wasn't to far away from a few runners in front. A good sign to me. I got to the 4K mark and my time was up on every run I've done so far. I kept going 1K left. My breathing was terrible. I was exhausted. I ran the last 200m as fast as I could.


37:27! Over a minute faster than my previous best of 38:42!

AAAAARRRGGGGGHHHHH!!!!! There will be celebrations today!!!!

Happy running all

  • It was hard going in the sun today I thought too, I did a park run too. It feels great once you've achieved a new PB doesn't it. I'm celebrating today too. Happy running to us both! :-D
