Parkrun in the bag

Parkrun in the bag

Hi all

After a week from hell juggling sick wee ones, work and life.... I completed my first parkrun in 38.30 so that's a new bench mark for me I wasn't last either!!! Not that I cared it was good to be out.

I can't believe I've ran so publicly as back 10 weeks ago I started in the dark as I was afraid somebody would see me, 😁😎..

I was anxious starting a lot of people but got into my own pace as others passed by, some of those then stopped and I could see they were doing intervals etc. I kept plodding a little slower than before but it felt good to get to 4k and know I was on the last wee stretch .

I can't say I sprinted to finish but picked up pace a little , I know I can push a little more but slowly slowly I can't believe I did it ....

Have faith people , keep at it

May get a photo later , somebody was taking photos

  • We just recently got Parkrun and it's pretty much my Saturday ritual now. It's addictive, and it keeps me accountable to at least one run per week.

  • Exactly that's what I'm hoping for but intend improving and still getting out during the week, met some other people who run on certain evenings so might join them 😁

  • Well done !
