I am finally getting back into PB territory after today's 22:14 Parkrun. I managed an interval session and a 10km run during the week and it helped me both run a little faster but more importantly keep it up for the whole 5km. I hope to keep up the training during the week so I can have a stab at the PB (21:45) in the next month or so. I spent most of the 5km behind a blind runner and his guide, they were running slightly faster than i was comfortable with but that is what you need when trying for a fast 5km. Each time I closed in a little on them the guide runner shouted at the other guy to pick up the pace and I think the combination of me trying to catch them and both of them picking up the pace meant we all got a decent time. I had a chat with them afterwards and thanked them for giving me a target to chase!
Keep up the running all and here is a link to today's run:
