Cracking 20

Since I got home from New Zealand at the end of February I have been going to Parkrun on a Saturday morning. So far I have done 12 but only 11 have been logged.
I have a few nearby to me here in Norwich but I usually go to offroad the courses as I’m not a big fan of road running.

I had set myself two goals this year for running:

1 – To run a 10k event
2 – To try and get a sub 20 minute Parkrun

Previous to today I had gotten my personal best time down to 20.14 and then 20.09 but both times I was breathing out my bum by the time I got to the finish, so I wasn’t sure where I might find those extra seconds.

Apparently today was the day. I came home in 11th out of 368 runners with a time of 19:52 🙂

A lovely sunny morning at a new venue for me – Gorleston-on-Sea Cliffs Parkrun. It was all tarmac so not my preferred terrain and even though I had forgotten my headphones it was still enjoyable – theres even an ice cream shop just at the finish too!
