I've had Sunday races recently, so have been keeping Saturday runs to a pootle, avoiding anything that might tempt me into trying to run faster pre-race.

Sorry Sigh.
I'll try to add any i do midweek, though at the moment I am doing slightly longer ones as I'm preparing for a 10k

MrsP posted her fist ever fake parkrun this week, so I’m passing on thanks from a long-standing but forum-averse Fetchie for keeping it rolling.

No worries folks, I'm just maintaining the thread, you all do whatever works for you. Glad it's helping MrsP.

I haven't done a Fakey since (goes off to check....) 19th June; wish I hadn't lapsed, to be honest.

Sigh! Get out there NOW!

Well, maybe not right now, you're probably working. Soon, then.

I've done four realparkruns so far: before that , I barely ran for over amonth due to injury. Might try to revisit one of my courses this week.

My actual real proper authentic etc parkrun this morning felt fake. Found it really tough.

Got something to say?
