I have a 12 day old daughter and have still been able to get out and do the parkrun the morning after she was born, I ran at whoolan nook trail race last wed then ran the Calderdale way relay on Sunday. the lack of sleep seems to have helped as I got a 1st and 2 second places in therm. Haha.
Fortunately I've a dog that needs walking so it usually ends up running with me.
Sorry that should read 66! Ha. I'm on my new iPhone and I've got sausage fingers.
i would've been happy to do all the session at 2.34s before I started and then when I hit 2.30 on the 3rd I was aiming to keep them at that. the quickest ones are where we was joined with the bloke who ran 15.45 at christeleton. The last rep became a bit of a kick. The next time I'm on there I'll know that I can hit the paces still so would expect them to be a lot more consistent.
Ill take them that erratic with it being my first time on there.
After a near two month absence I ventured onto the track tonight with my second claim club. I was extremely wary of what was going to happen after a lack of it, having heavy quads from Sundays race and wondering if trotting 3 miles out earlier was a mistake.
Session was 6x800 off 2 mins. First one was 2.34 but felt comfortable then the rest came out at 2.32- 2.30- 2.30- 2.28- 2.23. We then had a 400 blast in 56 secs. Really pleased with how it went. Better calibre of runner there which helps but felt really strong which was a surprise.
Sjpc14- I've done the Burnley Parkrun a few times. That isn't a PB course either. I had the course record at one point but it stands at 16.19 at the minute. My 10k time says I should be able to run very close to sub 16 minutes so I've decided to concentrate on the 5k now as I noticed a chap I beat at Salford 10k when I ran 33.15 has just run 15.45. I'm a bit jealous! Ha
Penguingirl, I run twice a day 3 times a week and usually head out at 6 am for an easy 4 miles on the canal with my dog. Helps keep my mileage up and can be useful for my recovery runs from a race or a tough session.
