Possibly the most painful race I’ve ever done!
Lining up at the start of the race there was a notable absence of the usual movers and shakers of the front row. I presume this was because there was a race the next day – the North Dorset Village Marathon I think.
So setting off at the beginning of the Parkrun, there were a lot fewer people at the front, so no jostling for position! I started off fast and, after 100 metres I thought too fast! But I managed to keep the pace up even though my lungs were begging me to slow down, and finished in 18:45 – a PB by 1 second!
A 10k this evening and a longer run tomorrow as it’s a Bank Holiday
