5K!

strava.com/activities/16734...

I passed the 5K point!

It’s including the warm up and cool down walks, but I couldn’t care less. It’s +5K!

And I’m not even graduated!!!

I’d love to do more of them, but they’re just too far away. 😢

Where are you? 😔

Nijmegen (Holland), so my closest parkruns are in Germany, as of December 2017. My home run is Worthing though. I try to visit that area in England as often as I can. Counting down the days to the next visit this month!

I messaged parkrun already! Got a few people here, including the running shop, that are interested as well. But sadly no plans from HQ to start in Holland. So I hoping Germany start one closer by, since I’m 10 minutes away from the border 😂

I thought it was up to the public to start them up?

Coming from a graduate, that means a lot. Thank you David! 🌷Currently looking forward to big school, very excited about that one! Sadly no similar app from NHS for that. Love the encouragement from Michael Johnson. Any tips for apps/podcasts?

Hi Tjar, there are podcasts on NHS choices you might find useful, covering speed and stamina etc. 🙂 Sadly, I’m not a tech person so don’t know how to attach a link. Sorry! 🙁 Good luck, let us know how you get on. 👍

Brilliant! 🌷Love Strava, although I’m quite boring on there, as I’m doing C25K on a treadmill atm. Will transfer to outside, after graduating. Will follow back!

Hence the treadmill. Bars on the side, so I don’t fall over!

Getting this all wrong. I went out for w8r1 on Wednesday morning and I didn't lift my foot high enough and clipped the kerb. Boom, over one goes and a few days off to recover, doh, 😀.

Careful now! Graduation is coming up!

I know. Mrs Gazloc said I shouldn't be let out without a zimmer frame!
