W9R3 Graduation at parkrun

Missed a run due to the weather so ended up W9R3 with my 1st parkrun.

Nearly didn’t go through with it as I dropped my phone in a significant puddle in the car park and the screen stopped functioning! But decided to run anyway.

As I had no idea of the time I had been running I just kept going (slow and steady) and ended up running the whole 5k. Just over 40 minutes. Not bad for my age, size and recent couchiness.

The programme is the real deal and this forum is immensely helpful and supportive.

Thank you everyone and happy running.
