Okay, so I graduated in July. Around about the same time I sustained a knee injury, so for the next few weeks my running was somewhat sporadic.
However, in the last couple of week I have been putting together consistent runs, have improved my PB and now feel ready to attempt a park run.
Besides a few runs with my ten year-old during the early weeks of c25k, I have not run with another person, let alone loads of people before, so I have mixed emotions.
Although I know other who do undertake the parkruns, I have chosen to go by myself to a parkrun, where I know no one as I want to experience it for myself first. The problem that gives is as a first timer I am unsure of a few things. Like where is the best place to start/ I have a barcode so assume I need to flash at the start and end - does this slow things down for timing purposes? Just general stuff like that really. So, if you have any tips for new starters please share.
