parkrunday: Town Moor #524

Geth and I were back on the Moor for the first time in a while this morning – it was the first time in a couple of months for me, though Geth did go in early December.

Much happier with my parkrun time than two weeks ago!

I honestly thought I’d be really slow again because all my three-mile runs this last week have taken well over forty minutes and I’ve been finding my slow pace a bit frustrating. However, I found today I was able to start out strong for the first mile, keep up for the second mile, and bomb the last mile – just as I was doing at Town Moor in the autumn! So I can pull the speed out from somewhere – I just don’t know how to apply it to my solo runs. My weekly parkrun will have to be my main speedwork session for this marathon training block, I feel.

I kept my barcode in my clear phone case today while I was having it scanned, but I ended up as an unknown and had to email in for my result to be added, so I’d probably better keep it out of the case in future.

Still making plans for the next few parkrundays but we will end up somewhere!
