Burnley Parkrun


Well I did Wk6 run3 on the Parkrun- it wasn’t easy but actually watching people walking made me carry on. I ran the 25 mins and a bit more then walked for quite a while and then ran the last bit , including a little sprint at the end!! I was last but I finished and had a lovely encouraging marshal running alongside me at the end - time was shite but I’m on my way! Might try it next week for my Wk 7 Run 3 - week 7 .....well as my friend Alison is given to say - Well slap my t’ts and call me Ethel.....Week bloody 7 !!!!!!!!!

🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️👍👍👍🍀🍀 thanks and glad that one is out of the way, looking forward to building up the time and stamina !


You're braver than me Mandi. I didn't join Parkrun until after graduation. Who cares if you walked a bit - you crossed the line and you've got an official time. Now you have something to spur you on! Its BRILLIANT!

Another couple of weeks and not only will you be running for 30 minutes but those Parkruns will also start to get a little easier. :D :D :D

Superb effort!

Yes looking forward to it!

That’s great. I came 3rd from last last year! And 216 out of 269 this time. It can only get better! Well done.
