This morning I had a 5 mile at my marathon pace in my planner so at 08:30 I headed off to the Common and my slower longer pace of around 8 min miles, its the perfect warm up of about 2.5 miles and I saw a few lovely runners and friends along the way which is pretty cool. Once at the Common I ran the parkrun at my marathon pace of 7:20 min mile which is not fast for me but felt good especially after a really heavy Christmas party last night 🙂 after a quick barcode scan I headed off running home again at my mara pace for the last 2.5 miles.
It was another fab turnout at the common and although my thoughts on parkrunning have changed slightly because of my marathon training it was a lovely way to start a saturday.
I covered just over 8 miles this morning and it was quite enjoyable, I have once again been full of this winter bug this week so training has been tough but I managed it ok.
I am hoping again to do a parkrun next week all going well and that will be part of a 7 mile faster run.
