Yesterday despite in-laws visiting we managed to make it to parkrun,  especially pleased to make it this week, as was joined by Giselle (runorgocrazy) and her family. It was a chilly morning, despite this it was a another record turn out at Killerton, last week they ran out of tokens and had to manually enter the 14 over 300 that attended. I do hope they had more tokens this week as there was 367 runner’s with an amazing 20% being under 18.

I made it down the first hill ahead of Madam (yay) but she soon passed me, but I did manage to keep her in sight all the way, something this old girl has not done in a long while, this meant either I was running well or she was not running well! I was very pleased to get to the end and find we had both run well and I was actually told by two people that said I looked strong at the end. Of course from this I surmise that I can that normally I look like a jelly fish!

Would have loved to stay for a drink and cake with Giselle but had to get back to our visitors. Congrats go to Giselle’s son who completed his 10th parkrun and got a mention in the Killerton parkrun news. Time for that t-shirt.

Later in the day I set about analysing and comparing my last two parkruns.

  • This week I did the first mile 10 seconds faster (love the hill)
  • The second mile I did 2 seconds slower so this puts me 8 seconds up
  • The third mile I did 11 seconds slower this puts me negative 3 seconds (feel free to correct Dad!)
  • The fourth mile (.1) I did 11 seconds faster this puts me up 8 seconds

So with all this maths done (headache pending!) I should have got a pb but came in 7 seconds slower, how can this be?

My shoe lace came undone, that’s how. Pesky thing. Next week triple knots.

About shazruns

I have been running since 2004 when I decided to do the Race for Life, as a close friend was terminally ill with cancer. Following that I did a couple of 10km at Leeds castle and Sandringham. Then in 2005 ran my first London marathon, then another in 2007 in blistering temperatures. I have entered the London marathon every year since but have been rejected, am now find maintaining my fitness & motivation hard, so when the email came through about Janathon I thought why not! Am hoping this helps with fitness, motivation and weight loss!! Wish me luck!

    Oh you’ve your analysis down to the last second! Well done on that too! I’m afraid I’m still at the point where I’m just very happy to finish. And yes, I’ve got caught by that open shoelace a couple of times too!
