Recovery Run

Life got in the way last night, so was out tonight before “something” needed my time!

Had a bit of a tech issue which resulted in not recording the first half of the run.... The second recorded half said 9 mins - 1.3km @ 6.52/km....... a huge difference to the 8.10 I ran on Monday (to make sure I could get to 5km)

First Parkrun on Saturday, so interested if I can a) get around and b) what time I’ll put up!

The gauntlet is down - next report on Saturday afternoon!

Good luck with the parkrun, we don’t have them here but will be very interested to hear how you get on as I might have a chance to do one next month.

Have spoken to a few people who say they are brilliant - i have a 19yr old too and if he does it with me....... I tend to be faster when running with him.

Darn tech! Sounds promising anyway. Park run sounds fab! You are very brave doing park run. Sounds really exciting. Have you checked out the course? Is it hilly?

It’s quite flat I believe! Hoping it will be anyway!

Not even been to watch one before, so not sure what to expect really lol. Oh well, we’ll see!

You don’t have to be brave to do Parkrun _SimonT. It’s very supportive and there is no pressure to go fast or run the whole distance. I recommend everyone tries it at least once . I did it as my first post grad run and loved it

I am definitely going to do one at some point. It’s the 9am start that worries me! 😂

Yes that’s what worried me on the first one so I ended up waking up at 6.00! 🤣

Good luck for a week on Tuesday, Oldfloss. We’ll all have everything crossed that the MRI brings whatever the best news possible is. Glad to hear you are still keeping fit. ❤️

If your son doesn't go with you...I'll be virtually running right there alongside you! See you Saturday 🏃‍♀️🏃‍♂️👍 What time is yours? Mine starts at 9.

Oh yeah - I forgot about our date! (Sorry!)

As far as I know - all Parkruns start at 9

I’ve never run first thing in the morning either! So that’ll be another first!

Shocking behaviour! Yes there is still a possibility I won't make it out of bed in time...

Do you want me to send you both an alarm call pigeon! I’ll be up before 7, so I can have some porridge and digest it before the run. 😂😂❤️

Might be a good idea!

Will get pigeons to catapult you both a bowl of porridge over at 7 then! That should get you up in time! 😂😂❤️

Well done getting out again last night, LoungeLizaard. And good luck with your first Parkrun. You’ll love it. The volunteers and other runners are all really friendly and supportive. Just remember to print off and take your barcode with you to get an official time. 😊❤️👍

Our Parkrun is not on tomorrow so I am going to our 2nd nearest one (still flat) so that will mean getting up earlier too.

Not expensive either really and it goes towards helping the organisation.
