Hi Mark. Well done on your achievements so far😀👍🏼

I really dont think that it is realistic for you to expect to improve your times each run, or that you should expect every run to be a perfect run. If you look at posts from others on this site you will note that most accept that a PB is an occasional thing rather than a continuous process.

Why not try to enjoy your running rather than putting significant pressure on yourself from such very high expectations.

As you are a new runner there is probably still a lot for you to learn about running which i am sure will help your running journey more longer term. Why not sometimes simply run for the joy of being a runner?

Happy running

No Parkrun (well for now,advised not to run it or just walk the inclines),GP wants to rule out heart related issues. Basically the chest deformity means it's harder to hear my heartbeat and with a family history wants to rule out any possibility. A bit spooked but will be okay :)
