Day 164/365 – Ashton Court parkrun

It was the dreaded ‘B’ course at Ashton Court parkrun, where we have to go up the hill twice and the total elevation gain is 120m instead of the usual 100m. I was very pleased to come home in under 23 minutes for only the second time at Ashton Court, which made it a ‘B’ course pb. Several regulars were off at Pomphrey Hill parkrun, so I ended up with a good position. I was also wearing my parkrun barcode wristband for the first time. A size small, it was loose on my wrist but not too loose to be annoying, and most importantly it scanned.

I finished 49th out of 264 parkrunners, was 6th lady and 2nd in my age category. Turns out I was only 6 seconds off my Ashton Court pb. It didn’t feel that fast, but maybe because my current 5km pb is 21:19 on a flat course.
