Day 59/365 – Ashton Court parkrun

There are a couple of local half marathons tomorrow, so the hill was a little quieter than usual with a lot of people either not running or taking it easy. As a 365er I am committed to running at least 5km every day, so it may as well be at parkrun. I took it easy though, going through the first km in 5:21. I figured I would aim for a 25 minute run, so was surprised when I crossed the line in 24:11. The line wasn’t quite 5km though, so some additional time was racked up in the finish funnel until 5km was reached.

I finished 69th out of 259 parkrunners, was 7th lady and 2nd in my age category. Jane was pacing someone slower, so I crept a little way ahead of her in the points table and am still 2nd.
