Today I awake almost 200 miles away from home in Glasgow ... All a tremble at the forthcoming angst of a parkrun... Running in daylight and humans around me...this was also my first run post graduation so surely I would manage 30 minutes of running.. but no the anxiety grabbed my breath, so it was a struggle to get into any sort of rhythm..
Mr Pip also ran and Piplet 2 volunteered her services as a barcode scanner...
In beautiful scenery off we set, 400 plus people.
I quickly surged to the back as usual and spent the next 51 minutes, mostly but not all of the time with the tailrunner...
So, this was actually a a PB for me for 5k (walked and jogged)..maybe one day I will revisit Pollok to try and beat it.
My next park run with be at my home run I expect, where my two runs were in the 53s.. so my target there now on the fairly flat course is to beat today's hilly time.
Then get a sub 50.. woo.
The lovely tea and scones in the Servants room at Pollok house was very welcome and nice to see so many there all chatting away and making us feel very welcome indeed
