Took myself into the forest for my first run in there since March.
Wanted to do 4miles, as that's a sensible increase, but as had to track the run on my phone, which was in my pocket, I had no idea on the pace or distance until I got home and then my jaw dropped.
How fast?! And my distance was slightly off 🙈
But holy sh*t! And im second on the 3 mile segment on Strava 😎 (@sophttartt I'm coming to get you 😂)
My run face does not do my emotions justice on this run.
I'm over the moon that I ran the majority or Wendover Woods parkrun and look at my pace!!! Half marathon training starts a week tomorrow, so excited!
A few stats for yesterday's parkrun...
My 139th parkrun
My 49th venue
4th in my age category
My 1st cowfest meet up.
Bring on my 50th venue next week (please weather god's be kind, I REALLY want to do the curly wurly at Somerdale Pavilion 🤞)
And I'm back!!!!
9 weeks ago I started my quest to run 5k nonstop again after tearing my hip socket in April and surgery in July.
Today we went to Wendover Woods for the Christmas tourist meet up.
I had to run 'naked' due to my watch going in for repair, and attempted to record it on my phone, it failed after a mile but holy cow I was flying!
Ran with @barryod071 and came in a few seconds behind him, unofficial time is 30:36, which included 2 small walks up the neverending hills
My slow, steady and patient approach to my rehabilitation has paid off and 8months after I broke myself, I'm back
What an absolutely awesome night with @newhorizonescapes and their Christmas party. Lovely to see the squad from Koh Samui again, and catch up with Adam & Ina, plus meeting people from other escapes at the lovely Radio Rooftop bar in London.
More memories made, thank you all!
Best way to beat the hangover? Run it out!
First alcohol last night since Thailand with the lovely people I went away with, and then ran to collect my car from the station.
Managed a segment PR somehow and discovered a few new routes
My little dinosaur roared his way around Bracknell junior parkrun this morning. A few water stops, plus a wee stop and he was gutted to miss out on a PB by 20secs. Told him he needs to not stop as much, so he started counting how many times he stopped then said "oh, I stopped a lot didn't I?" Yes my love, but it's really muddy so you were awesome.
Now to clean all the mud off the tail 🙈
