23-Jun-13 Leading the field!

In Blog, Personal, Sports on June 23, 2013 at 11:08 am

Yesterday I completed my 5th Park Run, as part of my ongoing training regime. It was my third weekend on the trot at my local Nonsuch Park event and the second week on the bounce that I have completed a personal best.

Although its an early start on a Saturday, which is never easy after a working week, it’s a great opportunity to get up with some like minded runners and participate in what is such a well organised event. I always feel so much better for doing it!

With my target of 30 minutes in mind for the JP Morgan Chase Challenge, I was well on target yesterday completing my 5km run in 26 minutes and 19 seconds finishing in 140th place.

Leading the field. If only!

When I started running the park runs in December, I had no idea that I would be running 5km in this time. I now have a target of trying to get my time below 25 minutes. This might be quite a tall order!

  1. I didn’t realise Nonsuch was your ‘local’ .. perhaps we can have a meetup sometime? Well done on your great time! I am much slower
