First night run and first proper running shoes!

First night run and first proper running shoes!

Long day of meetings on campus. Done by 4.30pm. So went into Decathlon in town to buy my first proper set of running stuffs, got back to my hotel, had a nap and a refresh then around 9.30pm,went for my first night run,past campus, Kingston and Walnut Tree (for those of you who know the MK maze!) Anyhow, my most comfortable run,six minutes quicker than I was at Parkrun and my new stuffs did the job! Didn't want to stop! :) My fourth quickest 5k to date!

So the moral here is if you have a bad run, best way to get over it is to go out there and get back on it! :)

Edited to add the new shoes (and trousers!) as requested:)

  • Decathlon great for running stuff but I must look for same as you to see if it speeds me up๐Ÿข๐Ÿ˜Š! Brilliant post & bet you chuffed with your times you might find like I do my runs seem better times at night than in the morning! But I'm more a night person anyway! It's just a shame it's so dark!! But we are out there running.... All that mattered... Enjoy Mark๐Ÿ˜Š

  • Glad the new kit helped. You know it is a tradition to post a photo of your new shoes on here. We love a bit of running shoe porn!

  • Um,okay but find that and the running shoe term a bit weird!!

    I got on my third and final train of the trip home at teatime,had barely sat down when...

    "Parkrun! You're Mark!" and points at me! Turns out it was two volunteers from last Saturday!! Really have to stop being recognised!!! ;)
