There’s always something isn’t there? This week I’ve had a tummy bug that seems to be turning into a cold, unless it’s hay fever, who knows! It’s been quite frustrating and I’ve only done one piddley 16 minute run since last Saturday. So yesterday, wimped out of Parkrun because I couldn’t wake my son up for it, my hip and tummy were sore, lungs feeling hayfevery so it really wasn’t worth it. However, now, if I do that I make sure I do a 5k run to make up for it as soon as possible. Don’t get out of it that easily!! Son is now on scout camp so it’s back to doing it on my own this morning. Tummy and hip were behaving themselves, so out I went.
So, now according to Strava I’ve only 1.24 minutes to go before I reach the fabulous 30 minute mark, which differs from the time I got from Parkrun last week (32.19). This morning it was 31.27, despite my lungs feeling like they were full of gunk. When I’m feeling healthy again I reckon I might crack it. Now I promised myself a tattoo (thanks Flaraflarkin 😁😳) when I reached it, so what do I do? Go by Parkrun or Strava? What do you reckon?
We’ve now two Parkrun free Saturdays as we’re off to North and mid Wales (can’t do any tourist runs unfortunately). Running in unfamiliar, hilly (possibly mountainous!) surroundings, I’m just a little scared but the pictures I can put on here should be lovely and will help to make it worth it 😊
