Time is my biggest issue. I just can’t commit to running everyday when sometimes I’m out of the house for 16hrs at a time with different start and finish times and locations.
So, my challenge is to attend a Parkrun at least once a month for the whole year. However I also want to advance my distance and complete a half marathon this year, namely the great eastern run in October. Having not a lot of time to run this is going to be a massive challenge for me.

    Two park runs in a row!! And it could be a Pb. I think I ran faster overall however I was then too knackered to sprint finish so we’ll see!

    So Monday’s run didn’t happen. Alarm went off but it was 3 degrees and I was tired so I went back to sleep. However it was 8 degrees this morning and so I got up and did my 10k! That’s my X Files medal earnt! When I got home I signed up for the Race for Life 10k in June and the Great Eastern Run in October, no backing out now. Oh and it’s my year runniversary today!

    Ran 5k this morn. Was planning to do 10k but I could tell my body wouldn’t cope once I’d done 2k. Anyone else find it harder to breathe when it’s cold out? Will try again for the 10k on Monday when it’s hopefully warmer.

    Parkrun done! That makes 3 this year so I’m one behind but there’s plenty of time. And I’m hoping I might have got a semi decent photo out of it too. My face will be bright red, I can’t help that but I should be smiling! Def won’t be a Pb but was a comfortable run so I’m happy with that.

    Wow! It’s been a long time since I posted but that was purely because for some reason I completely forgot how to do it! Convinced myself I had diff log in details and everything!
    So... March has been a failure. I was due to go to my Parkruns 300th event but it wasn’t a good day and I knew I had two more Saturdays in March to go so wasn’t too worried. Then work sent me to Clacton so I stayed with my aunt n uncle on the fri night but then couldn’t go Parkrun. We did walk 16k over the two days though. Then work sent me to Newcastle the following weekend and I planned to fit in Parkrun but then decided it was a wiser use of my time to do two separate Go Ape courses whilst 3hrs away from instead! So I now need to do two parkruns in the same month to make sure I hit the 12! Hoping to go in the morning.
    My running in general has been a bit sporadic. Think I actually need to sign up for some races so I actually train. Should be better over the summer. Still aiming for the half marathon in October and then London marathon 2020!

    Ran 5k yesterday morning doing what I call the running Jeff and knocked 4secs off my village Pb (which is minutes away from my Parkrun Pb) and now I think I’ve come down with a cold. Typical.

    Haven’t run since I did two days in a row last week. Think I pulled something in the back of my left knee but it seems better now so will hopefully get out in the morning.

    Did Parkrun today! I almost didn’t but one step at a time and I found myself there. Started too fast and thought I was going to quit at 1km but paced myself behind a lady who seemed to be doing a steady pace and made it through!

    Didn’t make Parkrun on sat as I had an impromptu trip to my friends house after work and stayed over so didn’t have my run stuff with me. I haven’t actually run in nearly two weeks. I need to get out there.

    Did Parkrun! first 3k was comfortable enough, picked people to keep up with and then overtook them and so picked more people but then found I wasn’t keeping up with them which got me down especially when other people started overtaking me and then my throat started to feel like it was closing up and I was struggling to breathe and I started to panic and then I was 200m from the finish and then suddenly I dug deep and sprinted to beat the person in front (not that I’m competitive or anything 😁😇). Turns out it was my quickest 5k for a while! However my usual route is up hill whereas this is flat so not sure it’s comparable. Either way I’m def glad I did it. ‏ — feeling happy

    Was going to Parkrun today but had an appointment that I didn’t think I’d make if I went, woke at 8:30 to a text that was sent at 8 saying appointment had to be cancelled so could have gone afterall! May need to get my 10k done in the morn. Def doing Parkrun next week though!

    Have managed to get out twice since my last post. Did 5k on Sunday and 5k this morning. Need to do 10k before the end of the month and at least one Parkrun!

    Meant to go for a run this morning but didn’t sleep very well. My other half kept waking me up fidgeting. It’s times like this where I wonder if I’m cut out to be a runner at all. ‏ — feeling tired

  • First chance at Parkrun of the year and I overslept. Exhausted from this week of work and celebrations. I have Horseriding today which means it’ll be another few days before I can walk comfortably let alone run. Next week there is no Horseriding so I should be able to get up and out in time knowing I can have a nap later if needed.
