Out early for my run and visiting my local Park Run venue today to suss it out. Plan was to run for 30mins at a nice steady jog. Love these early morning starts in the cool air and solitude. Did my warm up walk up the hill and started jogging after 5 minutes or so. Completed the first lap and ran up the hill again past the car park and tackled the second lap. After 30 minutes was up I had travelled 4.2k and could see the car park across the playing fields. The route was flat and then very slightly downhill to the car park so I thought "What's a mere 0.8k more? I could get to 5 k here again!" So that's what I did and completed my second 5k in a row😀. So 2 runs, 2 x5k and 2 different venues. A lot of this running lark is mental. But I thought" I've done it once so I can do it again".........not in the 30 minutes but it's given me the confidence now that realistically I can get to 5k now whenever I need to and that means the Park Runs are within reach when they restart.👍👍Happy running everyone😀
