Gave Saturday's parkrun a miss this time after being in Devon all week.
Just trotted out a couple of miles Sat p.m.
Today managed 4 miles, a long time since doing 4m in late August. As can be noticed I don't do much training these days ! Knees felt sore and stiff when setting out. Not unusual been like that for months I reckon. Actually I am looking for the best exercises without apparatus for strengthening knees. Unless kettlebells could be implemented.
Sounds like you enjoyed that welcome IOW break. Been there over a dozen times in my life, always loved it there.
Tracey, That undulating race you did sounded tough. Well done in doing 18 miles, I couldn't possibly do that
Wonder how Columba got on with her Parkrun.
My regular parkrun haunt was postponed due to other events in park so I opted for the harder Hallam 5k course yesterday. Massive crowded start, 474 completed the run. Margaret came to the race with me first time in two years and took some pics.
It felt really hard for me almost felt like walking once or twice but declined that idea.
Mile times 10.24, 10.04, 10.15 and 1.38 for the 0.13m.
Oldest man in the block! So first over 75. age% 58.58 401st out of 474.
Your daughter is such a strong swimmer, well done to her
Virtually no run training last week, I only had walks 4 miles Monday, 3 miles Tuesday and 2 miles plus just 1 mile running on Friday.
However, I did do another 5k Parkrun Saturday and managed to beat previous week's time by 28 seconds. How I don't know why! Mind you the weather was windless with just heavy rain coming down on us 5 minutes into the run.
Laps 9.59, 9.57, 9.53 and 1.15. Finish time 31m.04s. 113th out of 140. Age 61%
