25 Minutes Parkrun Goal. I can not believe how unfit I have become over Winter.
Two Saturday’s ago, we ran our first Parkrun of the year. In the pouring rain too. Me, my youngest son and my eldest Son girlfriend ran the race. It was her first-ever Parkrun too. My Daughter got out of it this week by saying she did not feel to well and watched it with her brother.
My Son, bless him slipped at the start startline and mucked all his leg. It wasn’t until after the run had finished I saw that he had cut his knee badly and was covered in blood.
He still ran it all in under 24 minutes with his kneecap cut to bits. My Son’s girlfriend did great too with a time of just over 25 minutes.
Me on the other hand not so good. Just over 35 minutes. That is well over 10 minutes slower than my first ever Parkrun. Not a good feeling.
Last week I ran it again and was even slower than the week before by 40 seconds. Time to pull my socks up.
Yes, I am older.
Yes, I am heavier than my first Parkrun 5 years ago
And Yes, this time can be done again.
I just have to believe in myself.
25 Minutes Parkrun Goal:
Now it is time to pull my socks up.
Set myself a new achievable but hard goal!
This week I ran it with Mollie and knocked over 2 minutes off my time!!
Just over 33 minutes. Still a long way from my goal but only week 1!
