I won't post about every park run I do but being less of a novice I went back this week and enjoyed it much more!
Starting at the back of the pack is great advice that someone gave me on here. I did indeed start further back and worked very very hard to keep my pace! Furthermore I knew where the inclines were and took them at a steadier pace. I Even though the course is described as generally flat there is a definite elevation in places. Looking back over my nikeplus record gave me info as to where the inclines started and finished. My first KM was the fastest for me but I did not drop much down during the following KM and achieved a PB of 37.57 according to park run and 37.01 according to my phone.
I really enjoyed it. I got a bit caught up with people overtaking and then walking so I overtook them and at the end I overtook a couple who then sprint finished way ahead of me. I kept reminding myself I am not racing anyone else just myself.
I think I am hooked though.
