A bit of an effort in the old running dept this morning. Dug out the Newtons from the Christmas present pile this morning – just to see…. What a nice pair of runners! Very quick shoes. Def for the half marathon.
Started off with a run around the houses to Parkrun. Then a freedom run before Parkrun. So… That’s 10k. Then Parkrun real. Shep was there this morning and he always manages to come in just ahead of me! So, my trademark bad start as everyone powers away came into play again and he ended up about 50m ahead. I kept the gap and settled in… Picking people off as they exploded in true Parkrun pacing style!
Some nice consistent running saw me come in 11th in 20.23. Not too bad and I think a seasons pb.
The jog home was painful and slow… Deliberately – the slow but not the pain bit.
A bit of rest now while I do some work!
