I decided to try our local Parkrun this morning accompanied by my daughter (running partner), weather was perfect a bit chilly but fine and sunny. Our run was supposed to be for 22 mins continuous so we thought we would do that and then just see what else we could manage but was quite prepared to walk if needed. Had a bit of a sleepless night having nightmares about leaving my barcode in my other jacket etc so wasn't feeling too bright and breezy. Well unbelievably we managed to run the whole 5K in 33 minutes didn't stop to walk at all. I feel fantastic but mainly amazed that we have progressed to this stage - I really feel like a runner now. The whole atmosphere of the parkrun was so supportive, everyone cheering you on and shouting encouraging things really lovely. On a bit of a high now and walking round with a big grin on my face
