Taking Laura W1R1 on Poppy Run Kingsbury Water Park

I decided to take Laura W1R1 on the Poppy Run, using the 5 min intro as a run, followed by the one minute run, ninety second walk, rewinding about half way through. She got me through the 5k in about 43 mins. I would have known the exact timings if I had remembered to switch on my Garmin. (I think I am much better running on my own).

Quite pleased with the result, especially as I was definitely the last runner to start - but not the last to finish. I think though, I am much better running on my own.

You've got a medal! I'm so jealous. Really well done and such a great cause.


Well done moon mar. I like running by myself and with others as find there are advantages to both . But as long as you enjoy the run that all that matters. Hope weather wasn't too bad for you Really windy here

Well done moonmar. I finished in 27:25 according to my official timekeeper/photographer/bag-looking-after bitch (him indoors!!) - a new PB.

Still not sure about running with others. They do spur me on, but they get in my way as well :)
