Mr. K.
Yes buggy certainly helps - like an ambulance through traffic. I`ve often tucked behind one at parkrun.

Have had people using me and the buggy as a wind break in parkruns before making a sprint for the line, which seems doubly unfair. :)

Groundhog
I happened to run a not-parkrun with two other people today for the first time in a while and it made a big difference. Just being focused on trying to keep up and run well and not just on what bits of my legs were hurting really helped. I felt the best I have in ages and did a reasonable time. It's great to be improving. 😊

Cheers for Groundhog. I have no motivation for anything but plodding.

One thing I think we can all agree on. If there is a buggy ahead that can be caught near the finish, that is extra motivation for a sprint!

Something I'll really miss is then outsprinting the non buggy pushers trying to beat me to the line. Better feeling than winning a bottle of cheap wine for being 3rd old bloke in a race.

Got something to say?
