Today was my last parkrun running in the old lady category, next week I move up in to the very old lady category! It was a dismal, dreary morning but this did not deter us hardened 5k runners.
I wore my Garmin for the first time since the Grizzly injury thing, the first mile was a tad fast, the second a bit slower and the last as usual my slowest. I managed to knock a further 40 secs off the previous weeks time, so happy with that, also with my 4th in age placing with a grading of 60%. I will be really interested to see what my grading is next week.
Madam took the right meds this morning, wore the correct socks and flew round with a massive 49 sec PB, causing the time keeper to suggest a drug test! Average pace of 7:13 per mile, stuff I dream of but my legs and lungs dread!
My Running buddy plus family came along to parkrun, two to support, two to run and as a complete surprise to take my out for pre birthday cake in the National Trust cafe, what a great start to the bank holiday!
