Day 304/365 – Ashton Court parkrun

I felt good as I cycled to Ashton Court for parkrun this morning, and when I went through the first km in 4:31 I knew I was in good shape. I kept up with Bevan for a bit before he left me at the turnaround point, and just kept pushing. Tanya passed me just after we came off the gravel, but I knew I had a good chance of a pb if I just kept pushing. I ended up taking just over 30s off my previous pb on that course (my 7th pb of the year at Ashton Court). I think it is the marathon training still being in my legs, coupled with the relative taper of only doing minimum 5km runs every day. Definitely a good time to capitalise.

I finished 40th out of 364 parkrunners, was 3rd lady and 2nd in my age category. Still holding on in 2nd position in the points table.
