I've now done 9 parkruns, the first at 41 minutes being followed by one at 39 minutes, the precursor to even less slow runs in the following weeks, I thought. Except I don't seem to be able to move from just over 40 minutes. While I am the oldest runner in the local parkrun (and the only one in my age grade) and cannot hope for much better, I don't see why I shouldn't expect to improve a bit. I would appreciate suggestions.
Secondly, what do others find best to eat before a run - type of food, quantity and timing?
