Yeah I'm sure it's just the pre-race nerves kicking in now! And I was relatively realistic with my estimated time as I put it a minute less than my PB which was get in March, and my recent parkruns have been my best since September last year so fingers crossed I'm in relatively good form! And I'm hoping lots of other people with optimistic with their times too so I won't be the slowest in my wave. And I guess if worst comes to worst someone has to be slowest...
Well only 6 days to go until this, anyone else doing it? I am in the white wave (the second) so am fairly terrified at the moment that I will be too slow compared to the rest of the wave. Does anyone have any idea what the predicted times are for each of the waves?
Wow Matt that is fast- the record at Preston parkrun is 15.44 so you would definitely be close to that (although it's not really a PB course).
I hope you're right about Sunday SJ- I'm trying to tell myself that running in a fast pen will be really good for me and there is no reason why I shouldn't be close to my PB as I am running ok at the moment. It's just the wait whilst you know that it is too late to train anymore! I think I just need to psychologise myself about what would be so bad about being slower than others in the wave etc (ie. practice what I preach!)
Does anyone else run first thing in the morning? I've noticed that now it's getting lighter I am naturally waking up between 5.30 and 6 so am contemplating switching to early morning runs rather than after work. We shall see if I actually manage it this week!
