I decided to incorporate my Week 5 Run 2 into a Parkrun this morning. I was so slow that I managed to do the whole run twice!
I was running with the tail runner the whole way round - she was extremely supportive - many thanks!!
That last (4th!) 8 minutes was extremely difficult, but somehow the cheers and support of the other runners at the end kept me going past the end of the 8 minutes to the end of the run, and somehow I found a sprint at the end!
I was 773rd out of 778 in a time of 48m - there is a lot of room for improvement there, but I feel great for finishing, and the park was so beautiful this morning in the sunshine that there's nowhere else I wanted to be!!
