PBs and hibernation

Unusually, this morning’s parkrun went exactly as planned!  This is because I’d intended all week to have Geth pace me to sub-30, ’cause he’d offered last weekend after I got tantalisingly close again.  My cold threw a bit of a spanner in the works in terms of training this week, as it meant I had to skip my midweek long run, but I’m feeling a bit better now and so had no problems keeping up with Geth round the course today.  The result was a 29:45 parkrun, a forty-second PB and more importantly my first ever sub-30!  This is a real milestone, as it means I finally feel like I’m no longer a slow runner and am instead a solid mid-packer.  Just have to get more training in so I can start translating it to longer distances!

We had a relaxing afternoon hibernating with more Final Fantasy IX – which is our now-traditional way to spend autumn and winter Saturday afternoons and made me feel really cosy and autumnal – before enjoying the first of the Strictly live shows.  I’m still voting for Danny John-Jules, but most of the contestants are really good this year so it’s going to be an interesting series!
