I did my first park run back in July before I had graduated and my time was 33.14 which I was very pleased with. What with holidays, injuries and other family commitments I have not got round to doing another one.
Since my first one a new Park Run has been set up just down the road from me so much more convenient (but not as pleasant surrounding). It was 3 degrees when I went out this morning and very cold hanging around to start. There wasn't as many people as at my first Park Run (which was Black Park) and I was a little worried I would be at the back of the pack. As we started everyone seemed to whizz past me but there were still a number of us there bringing up the rear. The first 1k was a killer, my breathing was awful couldn't seem to take in long deep breaths, just kept gasping. At the 1k marker I thought only 2k to go, then remember it's 3 miles/5k - DOH!!!!!
Bit mucky underfoot at times so wet muddy feet but I set my Garmin when I set off and stopped it at the end and I have a time of ..................31.54 - I have the biggest grin ever.
