I'm still finding it difficult to do the parkrun and I think I am going to find one that is more level and I don't have to do the circuit 3 times. I think it gets me down knowing I have to do the route 3 times before I finish and it is really muddy and uneven - tree roots etc.
Will keep you updated if I do a more level one and see if I am happier.
MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!!
