As a 55 year old man who hadn't done any running of note since leaving school, I was somewhat apprehensive about embarking on the program. However 10 weeks later, after a couple of hiccups on week 8, I finally completed week 9 with my first Parkrun. Much to my surprise I achieved a respectable time of 30:23.
I decided to run once during the week to keep fit & become a regular Parkrunner on Saturdays. I was astonished to get a time of 29:16 for my second Parkrun, a week after the first & am now really looking forward to the next run.
I know it's a cliché, but if I can do it, I know you can too.
