Photo is more a post-run footsie than a post-run selfie!
I aim to do Parkrun on Saturday morning, having done my graduation run last Saturday. For the runs this week I've done two practices where I run 5k without stopping, thus exceeding the 30 minutes.
There's a path across Farmoor that divides it into 2 separate reservoirs. The perimeter of both reservoirs is 4.6 k so to do 5 k I started and finished on that middle path.
When I started, there was a strong wind behind me (you can see the sailing club out there), and I set off at a cracking pace (for me). Then of course as I went round, I started to battle against the wind. However, by the time I got to the home segment when it should have been behind me again, irritatingly it dropped completely, and didn't boost me through the final km!
Still 36:06 is a "personal best" for 5km, so a good preparation for Parkrun on Saturday.
Unlike Monday's run, no stopping at all (the Monday route led to some inevitable stops to cross roads, open gates etc).
