Minimal public about. I was #50 of 1100 or so and jumped from group to group during the run.
I had a good start from the front row though first half a km or so was interesting as we went through the molehill field and the usual optimistic runners got underfoot.
If I was wondering why I wasn't destined to run the Staines 10k, this morning I received a good reason in the post.
Well I'm damned if I'm running with that.
Just turn it upside down
So Bushy parkrun this morning. The plan said a hard run with a lap before and after 'steady' - don't hang around.
So a 4km WU at 5/km and a 5km cooldown at 4:48/km sandwiched a rather uninspiring 19:28 parkrun. Pacing was bang on the Garmin for 18:59 but I hadn't considered the Garmin over-reading on pace or distance (at 5.12km I suspect the Garmin). At least I know for next time and know I can push harder. The silver lining is that is the fastest parkrun I have done since the end of 2013 and along with the TTing everything shows signs of improvement.
I suspect this week will be rather light as I head over to Copenhagen to race at the weekend.
Full of the right types of fat too, especially if fried in butter or coconut oil.
Couple of busy days with work and a lovely 7miler in some narrow Welsh lanes. 1st TT last night without a PB which I put down to the 22kt wind.
Has anyone been to Bushy parkrun? We're off there tomorrow and if they have 1000 odd people I'd like to know what the start is. Don't want to be trampled by the 15 minuters or queue up behind the 45 minuters.
