Well I thought I'd try the local park run this morning! Up to week 8 on the app at the moment

Only went and finished it didn't I!!!! πŸ˜‚

Time is very slow and I was one of the last finishing! But I don't care I kept running!!! Lol

Well done for getting out there and doing it!

Found this quote looking to answer the question β€œ What is a good 5k time?” ...

β€œ A good time for you would be however long it takes you to run the entire thing without stopping. Once you have that number, then if you want, you can work on improving that number, and not a number that some stranger on the internet gave you.β€œ

I’ve just done w6r3, so I have a little way to go before I attempt a park run, well done again!

Brilliant, well run!

Ive never heard of Great Run Local before. Terrific that you have one in your area. Sunday mornings are good for lots of runners.

I don't think you were very slow at all

Well done

Or to put it another way 70th out of several hundred thousand who live near enough to try it but don't. All depends who you choose to compare yourself to.

You could have not finished/started and stayed on the sofa. Well done for getting out there.
