I hadn't done a Parkrun since the beginning of November, and what a change all the rain has made, so muddy, although a couple of weeks ago while I was still recovering from injury the course had large puddles too.
It was the first outing for my new trail shoes, which I must say were very comfortable, I didn't even think about my feet or shoes while running, and I didn't slip in the mud (my biggest fear).
I found the run real hard work, I couldn't seem to get my breathing right, which is strange, because the last few runs it's been my thighs protesting, but my breathing's been ok. My time was 30:45, which is my best in a while.
I had been thinking of aiming for 10k this year, but I think I need to run a few more 5k's before I up my distance.
BTW My shoulders still ache from the Jillian Michaels DVD(see my previous blog), but I'm going to give it another go today.
