Youngest is volunteering at parkrun for his DofE - this is most useful as he needs a lift there....
Have run twice so far, aiming for ~11 mm as a "steady" run (~34mins) rather than "eyeballs out" and ended up with 33:30 and then 32:30, which pleased me immensely :)

Might give sub 31mins a bash before Christmas, but can't see me getting sub-30 this year.

and bumping this one too -

Any takers for a concerted effort by the end of the year?

I have a pr pencilled in for the end of the year as a test of what some consistent running might do - having failed to reap the benefits of PJ last time around due to the hot weather at my target event and laziness on Saturday morning's since!

Hi Rosehip!

I’m still a way off a sub 30 5K but will start watching this thread again and who knows? Maybe next year ;-)

Hello again Rosehip! We seem to have similar goals ;-)

I tried Project Joker over the summer too but got scuppered by the hot weather and then not being able to do a flattish 5k. Did a 5k race in September that was slower than the base one! Ah well. Perhaps I’ll have another go whilst waiting for marathon training to start.
