Took advice from you all and didn't run on Wednesday, had sports massage on Friday and had my psoas muscle well and truly pummelled, potential weakness there contributing to back pain. But she said yes I can run, so I had no excuse this morning despite hideous weather but to get up and out for second Parks Run.
Spotted (older) sister at start line but as she's as sub 30 min runner let her go and tracked other runners.
It's fascinating the different styles of running, and how little some people wear in this cold weather! Some people seem to be going slow but they are so steady you never catch them.
But ... I managed 29.52 mins, 3rd in my age group (blooming sister in same age group, came second).
I am amazed it shows the power of rest, personal goals and this programme. 🙏
