Parkrun Meet Up VBs?

BaddieThePirate profile image

Anyone up for meeting up at Marple Parkrun Sat 23rd Mar then reconvening at Dutsons Deli and Cafe afterwards? Town St, Marple Bridge SK6 5AA.

Anyone not wanting to run for whatever reason could volunteer and still join the C25K meet up.

Any takers?

Marple you say? Just got back from Brabyns park and having a brew now. Is it also fate that the 23rd on my plan is one of those rare moments where I get a run on a Saturday of the right length? I have a 3 mile recovery run scheduled, I guess I could do the extra .11 😂

Great!

Sorry I missed this Baddie, my head’s been all over the place this past few days. If I don’t have the girls that weekend then count me in!

Great, hope to see you there!

I will let you know. I regard Marple as my local parkrun, even though technically it’s probably Lyme (I live in High Lane). We could always do Lyme the week after 😛

I think it was Jay66UK who suggested a meet up at Lyme Park? Get your heads together!

If 23rd March is a kids weekend could you volunteer and bring them along to cheer the runners on?

Not my idea, guv. No siree. Anyone mad enough to try Lyme Park has only themself to blame 🤣

I think if the mad VBs are headed to Lyme we should show willing and go run it slowly!

Probably need to build up my outdoor running a bit more first (as in I've only done one so far which I did as a repeat of W1R1!) but keep me in the loop, Marple is the one I was planning to try first.

Any speed is on for Parkrun. Some people walk it. You should come and we can cheer you on 🤗

Hmm, I haven't said a definite no yet! Depends how the next few outside runs go. It's not so much the speed (I'm fine with sloooow) as that I'm deliberately building up gradually outside so my ankles get used to running on something other than a flat treadmill. I have ankles that can turn if you look at them - when I broke my ankle I was just walking on a reasonably even pavement, flat shoes, broad daylight, stone cold sober. I know myself too well - if I come along before I'm really ready I won't want to walk and I'll end up overdoing it.
