    Always seems like a good idea to do a park run mid week, then it gets to saturday morning and I add one of the following excuses to 25min is to far to drive; its cold, its raining, I have a cold, I have a cough, I was in the pub last night, I can't find my trainers, etc etc.. plus if I go my 6 year old will come too and beat me.. think I need to borrow @JCMaloneys personal trainer for motivation..

    ...do you think we could get a group rate if we all followed her round together?

    OK I am committing now to do my first park run tomorrow, just worried my 6yr old pace maker might whoop my ass. :cautious: Lining up my excuses now... :hungover:

    My 6yr old pace maker did pretty well for her age, I reckon she is capable of much faster if she pushes herself, she had loads left in the tank. Think I have another 2 years until she has me beat.

    I'm finally speeding up again. I must be starting to shake off that harvest stagnation.
    I thought I could feel something in my shoe on the run, but nothing bad enough to stop and investigate. When I got home and took it off, there was a sewing needle in it :eek:
    It must have dropped off the sideboard into the shoe underneath it this
    morning. No harm to my foot, but it stuck in my finger getting it out!:unsure:

    Had my first "training session" on Tuesday. Just when I was convincing myself I had a reasonable level of fitness my trainer nearly killed me!!
    Active stretching exercises for 10 minutes.
    2km run to park.
    3 circuits of the outdoor gym equipment.
    Walk to the bottom of a steep 100 metre hill & then do 5 "shuttle sprints" up said hill with a recovery walk back down. :eek::eek:
    Then 2k run home....................... and sprint the last 150 metres to the front door.


    I was nearly sick.

    I have 5 more sessions booked. :nailbiting:

    No pain no gain.... :D:D:)

    That sounds tough!

    I've been a bit under the weather lately, and plan on doing my first run in about 2 weeks today. It's going to be interesting to see how I feel afterwards, and whether or not my pace will suffer at all for it.

    We had a Royal Marines PT instructor pushing us hard for fitness training at our tug of war early in the summer.
    I maintained that as the anchor, it was like making a rugby prop forward keep up with the wingers. I got left behind to get on with my own thing a few times (n)

    My young farmers tug of war team I coach are coming Parkrunning this Saturday. They had a go last year, but fizzled out after a few weeks. They say they're determined to see it through to the summer this time.

    Today's 5k was, as predicted, a nightmare.

    ...felt like I had someone sitting on my chest, and I could only breathe through a straw.

    I will head out again tomorrow morning and see if all that coughing has helped any. Screenshot_20181108-163632.jpg

    @Daniel Larn push through it, I done a Parkrun at Seaton in August when I had a proper stinking "lurgy". Thought I was going to die halfway through, but felt better at the end! :)



    Stayed in bed the next day mind!!! :D:D

    Yeah, I will definitely keep pushing. I always feel so much better after a run, which is one of the reasons I always try and go early doors. Sets me up nicely for the day.

    ...even if I am sweaty, wheezing and red in the face.
