Went like this!
Week 1- parkrun.
I can’t edit the image to flip it- no idea why as it normally works but it keeps freezing.
28.25. 4th in my age category. 20th female out of 78. 113th place/201 overall.
Love the tree medal!
Out and back on my own (no parkrun that week due to being in Bath).
I had a headache and I had to wait at the one set of traffic lights for ages! But anyway, medal still earned. No fun stats like you get from parkrun though.
A Santa medal! The medals were all labelled, but I feel like it should be for week 4, as the weeks run from Tuesday, so Christmas day will be in week 4. Anyway. Another parkrun.
28.50 (which I felt was further off week 1 than it actually was-25 seconds slower isn’t too bad). Felt fine but had been ill in the week so the end felt tough.
3rd in my age category! 23rd female/ 80, and 137/226 overall.
Christmas day parkrun!
Ran with my brother, and he managed to get himself a Christmas day pb!
My time- 29.10. 165/270 runners, 4th in my age category again! 37/98 women.
I ran with my antlers held in place with a buff, jingling all the way.
Here are all the medals. The reindeer is my favourite.
So all in all, fairly consistent. I was tempted by the other parkrun on boxing day, as it had a 9.30 start ( I woke up too late for my one) but its laps and I don’t like some of the really fast runners, so just went out on my own for fun. I will try that one in the new year at some point to see if I have sped up, as strava tells me I am trending faster with my course but I don’t believe it, but it will be good to test myself on a flat and mud-free course. I’m glad I joined the challenge, even if I didn’t finish with amazing times.
