Today I completed my first parkrun. I was so nervous about this I barely slept at all last night, consequently I got up feeling absolutely terrible. I was not to be put off though as I had told that many people I was doing it I didn't dare back out. I have to say I did find it really really tough even though I have been running 5k 3 times a week since graduation 3 weeks ago. When I finished I totally forgot to do my stretches ( not sure if that was down to exhaustion or relief that I managed to finish) so now my legs are feeling stiff and achy. I will not be put off though and aiming to repeat this next week hopefully with a good nights sleep. I managed a time of 33:54 which put me in 259th place. looks like I have a long way to go!! Roll on next week!
