up at the crack of 6am and ready for it!

So anyway im gonna get straight to the point. its about to start week 5 and ive been invited to parkrun by a family member(9am start this morning), if i decide to pull out now i know i will regret it, and basically the reason i woke super early and couldn't get back to sleep :)

i know people of all fitness levels do these they walk jog or run. so im sure i will be able to fit it in to my walk run routine and there will be around 200+ people there which im sure will make it more fun.

Well done that is a super performance - maybe those Galaxy 8s are magic shoes, after all. 😎

Remember what we said about doing too much too soon though. The road is littered with newbie runners who made great progress and ended up on the IC due to overuse.

Great stuff but take care.

I am a bit daunted after looking at Parkrun website because I made the mistake of looking at results which lists sub 20min runners, age grading, etc. & I had a wobbly wondering if I can actually do it - the results listing makes it seem awfully competitive,

dont worry about the dedicated runner times. doesnt matter if you come last, walk, jog or run it. i was only bothered about finishing. :)
