Nice work FG.
Well done Northender. Is that an all time parkrun PB, or just the fastest time when it's been sub-zero? I love all the different types of PB that runners can have
I managed to knock a minute off my PB at parkrun on saturday, with a 21:53, which I was pretty pleased with. After 3 recent parkruns, the closest being 10s slower than my PB from over a year ago, I was beginning to think i'd peaked.
It occured to me that I was probably being too conservative for the 5k, pacing it like I would a marathon, only at a faster pace, i.e. trying to be "in control" all the way round, and keep something in the tank, so I can finish fast. This time i ran without a watch and went out hard (for me) and tried to hang on.
