Hackney Marshes parkrun

Hackney Marshes parkrun

In two minds about parkrunning today as the weather was wet and windy, but woke up feeling fresh so decided to go for it. Glad I did! The trip to Hackney was worth it as I had people around me to run with. Great flat course although small trail section was a bit slippy today. Pleased with the PB even though there was a decent wind against me at times.

Finsbury parkrun

First time at Finsbury parkrun – nice course and only two laps which somehow makes it feel shorter. Hilly though so definitely not a PB course!

HRM played up for first half, so tried to run by feel. Definitely need to practice running downhill fast, so might try to make this course a regular visit.

Pymmes parkrun

Might have scrapped a PB by a few seconds! Quite pleased given I’m coming towards the end of my biggest mileage week ever, and doing mainly easy running at the moment. I haven’t ran intervals since September, and have only done a few tempo runs since October. Hopefully this means my forthcoming marathon training might yield some new PBs in shorter races too.

Regent's Park 10K

Regent&;s Park 10K

With my thigh still causing at the end of last week I decided to have a break from running this week in the hopes of getting healed ready for this race. I did some rowing and cycling in the gym, including some fast rowing and cycling intervals, but stayed away from the treadmill and off the roads. It does seem to be working, although it’s still not quite 100% so will see how I get on next week.

Anyway, today was my first attempt at the Regent’s Park
