I spent a lot of today in Folksworth looking after my niece and nephew while my sister and a load of other BRJ runners and parkrunners ran the Folksworth 15 mile race. It is a 2 lap course so it was good to see the runners twice along the course and cheer them on. It was so windy out there and it was a hilly course but they all did really really well.
My run had to wait until the evening so at about 7pm I headed out with Tonyparkrunner for the short run to the town bridge and back. I started out at a fairly slow pace to test out my legs but then picked up the pace on the way back home and had a little sprint finish. I was hot, very out of breath and a pretty high heart rate but I felt really good. Although it was only a short run (the same route that I did a lot in the Janathon 2011) it was the fastest ever average pace I have ever done when running outside!
I recommend the Janathon to everyone!!
