Lovely morning in north London - thought i'd pop out and lose my parkrun virginity. 3.68 mile run there, then the park run - i was dithering at the start and everyone started running away from me - i realised its one of those things where a lot of people "race" so i spent most of it powering past people making gasping noises. i could hear the snipers trying to rein me in towards the end but i held form up the last hill and came in 15th with a 20.55. I don't really like running that fast, i prefer relaxed running rather than huffing and puffing running, but i suppose it's good to get one on the board. I don't suppose they'll get my finish time right as both of the barcodes i took wouldn't scan. 2.3 mile home gentle. Hope i havent used up all my nitro boost for Monday's 10k. Not that bothered anyway - Planning a cutback week after Monday, then onto the distance stuff - eyes on the prize for Berlin.
Well done on the parkrun pb Yermaj. Eyes on the prize tho - your next Marathon is bound to be a sub4 if you keep up all this training, plus i expect you to have a decent showing in the Strawberry half.
TD - Pottermoss is also running the Brussels20 tomorrow. Good Luck to both of you, quite a bit of racing this weekend including crazy Emmy doing another 26.2 and DV running all bleedin day and all bleedin night. Good luck all of ya
