I did parkrun in 32.48 on Saturday so I was really pleased with that. I’ve restarted Project Joker and I know if I stick to the sessions it will make a big difference.

I got down to 27:43 at a parkrun recently and in a 10k race Wednesday ran my fastest 5k of the year in the first half. Unusually for theme of this thread I'm now deliberately starting to slow down most of my runs and pick up mileage and running parkruns in early to mid 30s in trying to get more and more less intense miles in. It was great on Saturday not running flat out. Wishing everyone else well in their efforts.
