Day 7…already?!

Well that’s a week gone already. Seven days. I’m happy to report that I’ve managed to get out for a run every day. 

Today is Saturday, so it was the regular trip to Rutland Water for the morning’s parkrun. It was a lovely mild morning, slight mist hanging over the reservoir, but a short-sleeve running morning all the same. 

I love parkrun, I think it’s a great idea: free weekly timed 5k. All you need to do is register online, print off your barcode, bring it along and run. Easy as that.

It’s always nice to have a blast at a 5k every week. This morning my legs found it all a bit of a struggle,started off at a good pace but just couldn’t maintain it. So the last 1k was hard work. I also had the added pressure of trying to hold off a young lad of about 12 in the last 250m. Thankfully I managed to trip him up and leave him crying in the gutter! 

My reward for getting up and out on a Saturday morning? Wetherspoons breakfast. Lovely jubbly.

Total Janathon mileage = 22.3
