I did it!

OK, did my second timed Parkrun on Saturday. First one doesn't count since the lovely council men made us stop mid run and wait while they cleared some logs off the footpath!!!!!

The other half, bless his wee cotton socks, insists on running with me despite the fact that it wrecks his chances of a PB. Got to the end, gasping, as usual and said to other half, "That was dreadful - it felt really slow!"

Got a text from the lovely parkrun people to say that my time was 27.50!!!!!

Seriously, I couldn't run the length of myself a couple of months ago! Well impressed! :)

  • That's a great time, well done.

  • Thank you. :)

  • I know! It's mad int it. Fancy having to stop! The council couldn't have cleared the logs before you started could they! Grrrrrr Oh well, it's done now and you got a FAB time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Well done! Go steady though. It's early days for you

  • Thank you, and you are quite right - I do still feel that I am taking it easy though, the main thing is that we are both really enjoying it and the increasing fitness levels - as well as the decreasing waistlines!

  • Of course! It's such fun isn't it. Especially to have your other half running with you. the world's your oyster !

  • Well done and a fantastic time.

  • WOW that's brilliant, well done! The bit about the logs made me laugh but I bet you weren't laughing at the time!
