I’ve been back at parkrun for a few weeks now, and excitingly, everything seems to be going in the right direction. Today, my time was 32:59, which is only 30 seconds off my PB of 32:29, which I set last summer. I didn’t feel I was hugely pushing myself today, either, so I bet I can get close to that PB again soon, and hopefully get it down further this year!
This is not bad at all, considering I had such a poor winter of training. It’s amazing what weight loss can do for your speed – I’ve felt, in the last year, like I’ve been getting much better without even trying. Hopefully those last few pounds that I still need to drop will speed me up even more!
