Time keeps on slipping

Another week has passed and I am now only a few days away from completing my Gym Instructor course. Nerves have really gripped me but revision hasn’t taken up all my time. 

It is also less than 2 weeks to the first Wolf Run of the year and I am really looking forward to having my daughter join me for this one. I hope she knows what she is letting herself in for.

The Sprint Triathlon will be only a few weeks behind that and my swimming still isn’t improving despite a mega coaching session from my cousin on Friday night. Teaching myself to swim and then not doing it for years is going to take a lot to repair.

Saturday saw my 22nd Parkrun. I really do love these events. This week there were 702  runners of all abilities. I got my highest ever position and a new PB to boot of 23:28. I can feel a sub 23 coming. Really can’t believe how far I have come. 


Sunday saw me running with a smaller group when I joined my friend and the group he runs with for a few laps of Draycote Water. He was there training for the London Marathon and did 20 miles. I wasn’t feeling so brave but managed a respectable 9.4 miles in the spring sunshine. I love how my training has led me to reconnect with people and introduced me to even more. There really is a group mentality out there that says if you run you are a runner. No worries about distance or times. You are one of us.
