    Sunderland Strollers are having pacers at Sunderland park run tomorra. I'm doing 27 minutes. Which means I'll do the first 2 mile in 13 minutes and then walk up the hill and finish on 26:59.

    I’m doing some PR tourism tomorrow or I’d have been game for that type of pacing, how come you aren’t pacing quicker than that? Nursing an injury?

    EDIT - just read the running thread.

    I went and did Horden Parkrun this morning, round about 50 people there or so I’d say. Tricky one that as it’s undulating and swaps from grass to trail (rolled an ankle, standard clumsiness from me).

    Anyway got round in about 26:30 which isn’t too bad as I’ve had some kind of Wembley plague following me around all week!

    Slight back issue last summer which developed into a case of lazibastaditus.

    Did this parkrun near Bristol on Saturday . .

    course | Somerdale Pavilion parkrun

    The route was a cyclocross course, lots of twists and turns including a sequence of circular loops in the middle that made me feel dizzy. Very odd course, would recommend doing it if you're ever in the area . .just the once like. I couldn't do that every week

    Demons Run Full Back

    Did my 1st parkrun almost exactly a year ago in 27:23, came in today at 22:42.

    Never thought I'd get into running a year ago, and probably wouldn't have had the confidence to try it without a parkrun to get me started.

    Good effort that mate given it was a touch warm this morning. I was nearly sick on Aly Dixon at the finish of the Sunderland one.

    Cheers! Quite a shady route luckily. Must be getting a decent time if you're finishing with Aly Dixon :)

    Ha no, she was just dishing out the tokens at the end! No chance I’d be keeping up with her!
