Saturday morning is obviously Parkrun day and the venue for my 3rd runs of the week for a while now. I was stuck on W5R3 for over a month and have not been able to push out that extra 5 mins for W6R3 for the last two weeks now, so today I decided to go out without my watch and just jog until I dropped.
So anyway to cut a long story short, I jogged past the 2km marker and even past the 3km (something I have never done) before coming to a dramatic halt as I collapsed in a heap on the floor at about 3.3km in 26mins 52secs! So I am going to claim that as Week 6 done and dusted.
Final time was a mess and so is my knee but never mind, I can't do far and fast all at the same time just yet.
I need to be far more committed to the runs in the week now, I have been playing at it a bit for a while. My son and i have finished construction of a covered training area at the bottom of the garden with weights benches, pull up bars, and other equipment of torture so that will help work the rest of the body and something I enjoy a thousand times more than running anyway.
I hope those of you that do Park Run had a good run out this morning and good luck to everyone this coming week.
