Morning keen runnerbeans...
Well, I only went and did it! I did the Marple parkrun this morning, first time ever I’ve run with other people, and it was really really hard, but fun too.
Of course I got caught up with the crowd, and despite my best intentions, my first 0.5k took 5:41, which I couldn’t sustain. There were a couple of small but intense hills which nearly killed me, but with all the cheering on, I managed it in 35 minutes. Certainly one of the slower runners, but, a run is a run, and I did it!!
The biggest crisis was that I hadn’t tied my new running shorts tight enough, and they started to slip down after the first 100m lol
I tell you what though, never has a cup of tea tasted so good!
