Ran the course in reverse today. Was just going to run easy but quarter of a mile in I felt good and upped the pace. By the third lap I was full sprinting, thinking it might be a decent time and close to a PB. Official time is a PB by 1 second.

Was planning to do a big VR parkrun meet up at Huddersfield but very bad wind and rain got in the way. Stayed local, did my nearest parkrun instead.
There were rain showers and on the long uphill at the end of each lap I was running into a strong headwind. As I had a 20 mile race on the Sunday I was going to run easy. But when you’ve made the effort in bad weather….
I ended up setting a PB for this course.
Distance: 5k official; 3.06 miles Suunto
Time: official 23:06; Suunto 23:05

With Hallam parkrun cancelled Sheffield VRs seemed to be split between Poolsbrook and Hillsborough parkruns. Lovely sunny cold winter morning. Great to run with Callum and Jo, and meet up with Karen, Helen and Caroline. Easy pace because my total weekly mileage is high and I’ve got a half marathon tomorrow.
Time: official 29:38

Volunteered after, sorting finish tokens.

Ran steady, zone 2 heart rate.

Second parkrun of the day. Ran easy with Rachael and Scott. Narrow paths and over 600 attendees meant being patient. Loved it.
The VRs that ran at Graves we’re joined by VRs who’d done the early Clumber parkrun.

First parkrun of the day. Went for it from the start and got a PB on this course, and was a full ten minutes faster than Saturdays run.
Then got in the car and drove to Poolsbrook…
