Parkrun worries 🙁

Hi all. Getting myself psyched up for parkrun this morning but a bit apprehensive. Haven't been for a few weeks due to other things going on. Have been out running about twice a week but this week not been very good. I've had a lot of stress as my dad is ill and didn't sleep on Wed night. Went out for a run on Thurs afternoon as I was determined but was a disaster! I ran/ walked for about 20 min then gave up and walked home. I was just totally exhausted. Really felt quite defeated. Anyway I find myself today with changed plans so now able to go to parkrun but now worried I can't do it. I have done 3 so far since I graduated at Xmas and managed them although it was hard going at times. It's raining at the moment but thinking I should push myself and try to do it. I will post later with update. (Thinking to myself now I have to do this or else there will be nothing to post lol!)
