So I set my alarm (and told my other half what time I would like my cup of tea!) this morning so that I wouldn't be rushing, and set off to my first ever Parkrun.
I had been wondering which local one to go to - but after some last minute research last night, decided on Orpington. 2 3/4 laps of a mixed course, some grass, some trail, some tarmac, round a lovely park.
I did a mixture of running and walking - setting myself targets each time like run to the yellow cone, walk to the bench etc, and looking at my Garmin stats, I ran more than I walked - just!! I knew I could walk 5k in about 55 minutes, so was hoping to do it in less than 50 - actually did it in less than 45! (In fact my Parkrun time was 43:30, but I forgot to stop my watch - hence the time on my photo - modelling the beetroot look!!!) And I wasn't last!!!!😁
