So the day finally dawned for my park run debut on a bright but very cold north east morning. A beautiful setting looking north from Whitley Bay towards St Mary's Island. I was freezing at the start and can only wonder what the local loons swimming in the north sea were feeling!!.
Not sure I really got the full park run experience as due to the fact that it was -3 at the start only a handful turned up and I was running by myself most if the time.
Still the run itself was my best yet by far with 5k achieved in 32 and a bit minutes, breathing felt good even at a faster pace and i feel I will be able run the distance in the thirty minutes once the weather warms up!!
Continuing to really love this journey and my next park run will be Newcastle on the 30th, hopefully warmer with more competitors.
Happy running weekend everyone 😁
