Well I feel just a bit let down if I'm honest, sorry JS. The group is very friendly as I have found with Parkrun, everyone spoke and introduced themselves. But all we did was a 5K jog around the streets and tracks which I have run for 8 months or more, so nothing new there.
I managed to run without my music, I managed to keep up with the group, in fact I was middle of the group all the time. We stopped and re-grouped every now and again which I have to say I found a bit off putting, when I go out to run, I run without stopping until I'm finished!!
But here's the best bit everyone, I managed to speak on and off all through the run, not great long conversations but a few sentences here and there, I was quite proud of that achievement. It will be interesting to see what their actual training sessions consist of but tonight they had two new runners, that was a young girl and some oldgirl!! So they had to assess the newbies first, so the next time will be the real test perhaps.
So anyone wondering what their local running group is like, give it a try, if you don't you'll never know.
