I would like to share this with you.
I did not have too much energy today and having to wait for 8am start was not good so I ate some dates. 3 exactly. I also decide to try the Run / walk / run / walk....
I came 26 out of 33;
1st in my age category out of 1 ( I like this bit) ;
14th out of 18 female AND
a new Parkrun PB of 7.8 so it is one good thing. (My best PB was a Funrun last year of 7.712)
Somehow today is not 100% sweet because I did not run all the way.
I also find the walk / run / walk / run harder, as when I just run I find the first 5 or 10 minutes hard then I just go on automatic pilot and I don't feel anything while today was a constant first 5 minutes. My hat to people who do long distant walk / run / walk / run
On the positive side, back home my legs are cool and no bother. So this method is good for no injuries
