Did my first parkrun in ages!

I started today as I mean to continue throughout the year ... that is waking up feeling refreshed and doing some exercise ... no hangover or feeling tired from to much partying!

Plus, being part of the janathon is just what I need to kick start my exercise and healthier living!

So, what did I do? I did a parkrun for the first time in probably two years! Having a timed 5K run was going to be a good benchmark for my running level at the moment and a great way to see how I progress with regular exercise.

Needless to say, I was very surprised at my time ... 25m45s according to my watch! Shocked is not the word to describe my reaction!! Stunned is more like it!! WOO HOO!!


  1. Well done! I would love to do Parkruns but sadly we don't have one round here.

  2. Hi Sheri,
    Thanks for the cheers!

    Parkruns are set up and run by local runners for their local community ... so why not start one in your area!

    Here's a link for more info on starting your own parkrun:

    Good luck!

  3. nice time there Midgie - well done x

  4. Thanks Sean ... I couldn't have done it without the AudioFuel - - music!! It helped me keep my pace up rather than easing off and wimping out!!

  5. Well done Midge! 5ks hurt!! Great time. Which one did you do?
    I love Parkruns!!
