Running Man – Worsley Woods Parkrun 28-6-2014

parkrun logoLast weeks run was a real nightmare.

One of the slowest Ive done since I started back doing park runs. I just felt tired after the holiday, and not at it.

This week Ive started dieting again, keeping a count on my calories. Its time to get a bit more serious about getting fit and losing weight. How long it lasts I’m not sure, but I will try

route 28-6 climb - pace 28-6

Splits 28-6

Back in on it!

Rach wasnt feeling well this week, but still headed off in front. A great first K where I kept her in site, the 2nd k was a good carry on considering it normally slows a lot more and I was catching her back up at this point.The 3rd k, which contains all the stairs is suprisingly fast – and yet it could have been faster – twice my laces came undone and I had to stop and do them up. Both times was as I was about to catch Rach up. Pretty pleased with the last 2 k, but I couldnt catch her and she finished just infront of me.

I was convinced this would be a PB waiting for the official result….

Result 28-6

Damn. I’m happy tho, back on it!

Rach finished 32:37
