First Parkrun!

Hi All

Did the Coventry Parkrun this morning. My time was 36:41 and i came 540th out of 614.Not a blistering pace but i did run all the way round even though i did feel like walking near the end i carried on determined to get round I won't pretend it was easy and i had doubts about doing it especially as i had not run at all this week but i'm glad i finished and celebrated with a post run coffee and cake! no real aches and pains after and looking forward to improving my time.
