Tried the new Maidenhead parkrun today. Just over 19 good enough for 4th and only a few seconds of the winner (sorry 1st placed runner!).
I noticed your result when I quickly scanned them yesterday. 303 runners for the inaugural and 174 yesterday. Wycombe, by contrast, was 132 for the first and 82 for the second and was close to a year before it exceed 132 again: now ticking along at about 260 for 3 of the last 4 weeks. Shouldn't be surprised that you can start a new parkrun close to an existing one and new numbers shoot up.
Maidenhead parkrun is under 10 miles from my house so wondered about public transport there and run back for a nice outing: good route back. buses are awful: best part of an hour, and costs £6 as far as I can tell.
Mid 19 parkrun today, slower than last week but yesterday's long one was still in the legs. At the 500m point I was about 20th and behind a bunch of optimistic fast starters. Pulled up to 9th by 1km and got another 2 by the finish.
SG: didn't see you at all at parkrun: you should have come over and exchanged banter as per normal. The long run form yesterday was still in my legs but only 30 seconds slower than last week so I'll take that. Odd thing with a 10 mile race on Good Friday (Maidenhead 10) and I am doing no fast reps: I'd normally do a few sub-6 sessions so 6:10 to 6:15 pace feels easy but will have to rely on endurance to get me through.
