Not to sure what to expect from the legs at parkrun tomorrow. I've just noticed there's another one started ( Croxteth Park...about 10 weeks ago) that's a little further away but still only 9 miles. So I'll see what time I get up and decide which one to go to.
Legs felt ok for 6 last night, mainly off road.
Have a long Good weekend all. I've got a kitchen fit to be getting on with
I'm with you on the 5k Big_g, I now know it's going to hurt! ,always go off too quick, but some weeks I can hold on and other weeks just fade. Quite difficult to get it right, but yes a great buzz when it goes well.
The last few I've run without looking at the watch, just go on feel and have done much better. Think I just get scared of seeing a 6 on the display
4 last night for me, hard work! ,legs feel better today though.
mamafox - Great run, more importantly did you beat Jocelyn ?
Good to see Shades & Keith yesterday, don't envy that drive Shades!. Had concerns about the weather, but neither the wind or rain made an appearance.
Lovely course, with plenty of lumps and short sharp ups and downs. Decided to go for a sub 4 and settled into 3:40 pace , difficult to judge pace with the hills so just ran on feel. Halfway in around 1:50 and feeling good, passed a hobbling 10in10er and gave her some support, felt fine all the way to 20 (2:55) and really thought sub 4 was in the bag and was wondering if 3:50 could be done. Started to slow over the next 3, but still at 23 in 3:25, but here my legs gave up and I had nothing. Time frustratingly ebbed away & the last 5k took me 38mins! so finished in 4:03:31 , 4 min pb on a tough course so happy with that, but still a bit gutted about sub 4. Liverpool in 4 weeks to try again.
Kids enjoyed themselves, plenty for them to do, high ropes course, 1m fun run and we took our Kayaks as well. Access to the lake was easy, the boy managed to lose his shoe in the lake within 5mins of getting there!
Legs not too bad today, calfs a bit battered & end of my toe also. Bet shades has been out already, day off for me and I'll head out tomorrow.
