15-Jun-13 Personal best!

In Blog, Personal, Sports on June 15, 2013 at 10:06 am

The last few days have been extremely draining with football on Thursday, a gig at a local pub last night and today’s park run! I’m looking forward to putting my feet up tomorrow for Father’s Day!

Thursday was tiring, as we played for just over 90 minutes without a break! It did not help that I played in midfield for most of this time, so by the time I got home, I was fit to drop.

Last night, we went to our local pub, The Station, with some friends to watch a band called Soul Rites. They were extremely good and it was certainly a lively evening down there with their mix of soulsy and bluesy numbers. Even they have a blog on WordPress, so here’s a quick plug for their blog, as they were very good. Soul Rites Blog.

And so to today’s Nonsuch Park Run 5km. After 90 minutes of football on Thursday and several beers last night, my expectations were low. In fact, I thought I would be happy to just get around alive. The good news is that I surpassed all my expectations and actually did a personal best of 27 mins and 10 seconds finishing 188 out of 330.

To get anywhere near my JP Morgan run target of around 30 mins for 3.5 miles, I am going to need to get my personal best down to below 26 mins, so still a bit to go. Now for some rest….
