I'm doing my first park run this weekend as my W9R1 and the park run I have chosen is 90% on grass. It has a tendency to get muddy apparently (it wasn't on a couple of weeks ago to allow the ground to recover a bit) and it's set to rain this weekend.
I have some beautiful bright pink Ascis trainers which cost me the earth. I don't want to get them ruined by running through mud. I was wondering should I put them through the washing machine if they do get really muddy???
I'm a novice at all this, so I haven't a clue if that would ruin them?
Because of the weather forecast, I'm thinking of switching park runs to the South Manchester park run which I believe is on concrete.
Am I being a princess by worrying about my beloved trainers?
I'm stressing enough as it is about park run. The slowest park run time from last Saturday at the Cheadle Hulme Park run was about 35mins. I reckon I'd be about 45mins.... that's if I make it around 5km. I've not actually come anywhere near 5km on my runs yet.
So I'm wondering whether to do South Manchester park run because the slowest time there was 45mins and that was the tail runner.
CH park run is much smaller than the Sth Mcr one.
Oh decisions, decisions.
Anyone got any advice please?
