Muddy, I am not jealous at all that some people can knock out an 18:40 parkrun less than a week after running a marathon while other people struggle to complete a 10k at marathon pace 6 weeks later even though they are trying really hard. Not jealous at all.
Not my best time today at Beeston parkrun as I ate too many pastries beforehand and it was very windy, but still a WIN in 18:35 (I made it 18:32, but there you go). Most of my former clubmates were volunteering as they have Robin Hood tomorrow, so it was very sociable and £2 for tea/coffee and poached eggs on toast or a bacon & egg cob is a total bargain. Tony remembered me from when I used to run past his cafe every day, so was relieved to hear that I'd stopped due to moving to Scotland, not injury or anything. I would not necessarily recommend eating a bacon & egg cob before resuming your 'long' run, but it was fine.
