I always walk before I crawl.
Will I ever learn?
Today was a W4R3 for me today but I changed my mind.
Because it was cold and wet?
Nah... I put on compression leggings and top and extra layers in the form of a loose running top and shorts. Finished off with a neck warmer and a baseball cap to keep the rain out of my eyes. No rainproofs.
Actually my other half was doing her 10th parkrun coinciding with parkrun's 14th anniversary. So I decided what a fantastic way to break my parkrun virginity.
Has anyone mentioned it was wet this morning? 😸💦💧💦☔
This was my first wet weather run.
And my first parkrun.
And it was awesome! 😸🐆😸
Our local is 3 laps.
Lap 1 was great. Shuffling along nicely. Thanking the soggy marshals 😸 and running next to my beloved,chatting away.
Lap 2 - also went well. Cannot believe we were getting lapped so soon into lap 2! Still OK and keeping up with Mrs Kaunas.
Lap 3 was difficult. I wanted to stop and walk but I wasn't sure I would be able to get going again. Mrs Katnap stayed with me and we crossed the line hand in hand. 😸💑😸
I'm delighted to have completed my first parkrun today. Supporting Mrs Katnap (although I think I should say she was supporting me) and celebrating parkrun's birthday by taking part.
Back to the plan now. I don't want to be on the injury couch!
Happy running everyone! 😸👟👟👟👟😸
