Just got through the winter down here in South Africa and looking forward to summer with early morning sunshine. Have a new job which is hampering my running time as it is a long commute from home but still running when I can.
I am doing the parkrun most Saturdays now and for anyone nervous of doing this.... dont be! Our numbers reach around 700+ so there is every shape size and ability - and thats only the dogs at the back. Seriously it is one of the best ways to push yourself And because it is timed, each week it is you against the clock. Once you know the course its a breeze pacing yourself.
Go on Try it !
