Loving this running !

2nd Parkrun, on the way to Conwy the heavens opened and the heaviest hailstorm I have ever seen descended on the road, with the Snowdonian mountains in the background it seemed more like the middle of winter than the eve of May.

Then the blue sky broke though with the remains of the rainbow, and the run started in fine if cold weather.

As my last Parkrun was 41:15 I wanted  to get under 40 minutes, this meant speeding up un the last 2 k's , 15sec on 4 and a minute on 5, I had slowed last week at the end.

    Well I got under 40 with 39:46 , I actually passed a few near the end, I love this running.
