I finished Week 8 today and it was pretty comfortable. I got faster on each km and felt like I could have easily just carried on. I have absolutely no Gremlins about upping the time by 2 mins next week. Soooooo......the plan is to graduate with a Parkrun next Saturday (subject to fitting my other two runs in first with pending snow).
I've done the course for practice a couple of times but included warm up & cool down walks. I think once I start running I might be able to get to the end without walking. Bearing in mind my 28 min run section normally covers just under 3.5km would this be a safe increase if I did just get carried away?
Also I know every Parkrun is different but what time would you advise a First Timer to arrive at a Parkrun?
