Hello All, Me & Steve tried out our first Parkrun @ Woodbank park on an icy cold saturday morning. The ice meant the organisers had to cut out the steep decents and made a circular route round the park x5 laps with a small diversion through mud under one large tree due to ice. It was great to do a 5K at higher tempo than normal. The turnout was 140 odd with wide ranging runners and joggers. really nice atmosphere. I shot off behind the leading group and once again reality hit home as the leading ten or so sailed off into the distance. I held the Lyon king off until midway thorugh the third lap when he breezed past me and as usaul I decided I would take him over the last 400 meters or so , once again no real kick finish for me as was blowing just to keep the 4.30 ish pace. Steve finished 18th overall in 22.43 and me 24th and 23: 22. The email link followed providing great stats etc including race time ,postion and age group finishes and world average stats. Will definately do some more when they fit in between me and Janet fighting for traing time. Hope you can join us for some park runs soon.
