Well what a very enjoyable but hectic weekend, kicked off by the first leg of the 5Ps grand tour... Burnage.
This is actually one of the closest to my home and on a route that I run part of regularly. We were on the alternate course on Ssturday because of work being done to part of the normal route. This was my first experience of parkrun elsewhere but Marple, and I very much enjoyed meeting a new set of people - the friendliness and welcome were exactly the same as I'm used to, I'm glad to report. It was lovely to be joined by Runaroundsue, her hubby and two other friends.
An interesting course, starting with a short run along the river path, then up a section of a cycle path and back, back along the river and a loop around a field then back to the river, veering off to the rugby pitch to finish. Some gentle inclines demonstrated to me that I need to find some non-flat routes practice on.
Sadly, it was not a good running day for me... hydration, I think. I struggled from the off and was very glad to finish! No PB for me, but another one completed. But back at the club house a lovely cup of coffee awaited and a bacon butty for some (not me... I was being good).
An enjoyable first leg... very much looking forward to the next one, which is Sale Water Park in May.
