Lovely day for running

How is your injury GN?

Getting back into the swing of things now.  Feels good to get back.  Anyone doing Swansea 5k?

Home made turkey curry with extra mushrooms and garlic, brown rice

NR- I will be there most probably- Carmarthen Mayor's 5k this Monday first though. You doing that? Nice food- except for the rice!

Yes I am doing them both (May & June) and it will be my first ever event so feeling a bit nervous as I feel like I will be the one looking like I just shouldn't be there!

I hope to get a respectable finishing time (for me, I mean), though being able to run 5k at all was my original goal not that long ago and now I feel comfortable doing that, and have improved a lot over the last few months.  For example I had a measured first 5k time of 28:07 last night during my 46:31 minute 8k run - by measured I mean I used those 500m markers sunk into the prom from Blackpill to the County Hall and back.

I assume quite a few people on here have done these Swansea Bay 5K's before, so am I likely to expect the field to be made up of mainly very decent runners, or is there a fairly spread out level of competitor?

SH - the Swansea 5k is a great social event.  Lots of different abilities.  The entry fee means you get food and a drink at the end too.

CG - it is frustrating when you can't run.  Have you had sports therapy or anything to help?

MM61 - hope your injury is staying away too.  Catch up at a race soon.

Bike ride for me this morning and run this evening.  Seared fresh tuna, cous cous and loads of salad

CG - just think long term.  Its not long since the marathon and you have to give yourself time to recover.

Nice day today which is always a bonus
