New Years Eve I did Seaton parkrun without my Garmin and was thrilled to bag a PB and a fairly ‘good for Shaz’ time.
A week later I went back full of confidence, had what I thought was a good run only to get to the end 20 seconds over. Grrrr. To make matters worse the woman just a head of me was in my age group. Double Grr. Not to worry someone said there is always next week
Fast forward to next week-today. Minus three as I set off from home. On arrival rumours was flying in regard to a change of course. The Run Director confirmed this at the pre run meeting, an extra 400 metres at the end – ON THE PEBBLES and drug testing for those that obtained a PB. There goes my PB this week then.
Operation ‘hang in there and get to the end’ was put in to place. I did and I did, gaining a first old lady position and ended with legs like jelly, like I’d been on a boat for months.
Lets hope for warmer weather next week
On the upside it was a lovely bright, sunny morning and I was first old lady! There is always next week for that PB.
