Well done Pc59 even more so for doing it in this cold spell that we are having. Do be careful though, its all to easy to have a little slip ....

Big thumbs up though for W9R1, you are almost there ... :-)

Hope it stops for your parkrun thats ny next goal a parkrun!! Don’t worry i always take at least 1 days rest & if struggling il take 2 days as i have been so lucky to escape injuries. Well maybe a few aches until ive had my soak in the bath😂
