Janathon Day 22

I got up early, put on some clean (and dry) running clothes, had a bit of my (rock hard and slightly burnt) flapjack, then drove to Cambridge parkrun. Including todays run I have done it 11 times (11.5 if you include my poor attempt last Saturday) but my times have been getting slower and slower each time. My pb at the parkrun is 33:08 which I managed to get last June when my (speedy running) sister ran with me. Since then I have been finishing in about 35 or 36 minutes.

Today Sue from the BRJ running club ran with me as she is saving her energy for the Folksworth 15 tomorrow. I was aiming for about 34 minutes and Sue really encouraged me and made sure that I kept a steady pace and then really went for it near the finish. This meant that I was actually running with a little group of other runners today and I got much further round before the speedy ones started to lap me. It felt really hard today but I am really happy with my time – thanks Sue. Will I be able to push myself and do this pace next week if I run by myself?

    That flapjack seems to have done the trick, well done, glad all went better than last week.

  2. Only a bit off your PB you must be pleased, and in the middle of Janathon.

    Well done, I feel really pleased for you. By the way, it was the nicest flapjack I have ever had! x

    Great run, especially three weeks in to Janathon.

    So close to that PB – if you weren’t on the back of 21 days straight running then I’m sure you’d have beaten it. Early Feb you’ll have had a few rest days to absorb all this hard work so you should look to beat it then! Excellent work nonetheless – perhaps flapjacks are the secret!

    Oh well done on the park run Sooozie and for knocking so much off your “normal” time, especially in the latter stages of Janathon.
