Andy H Park Runners Tribe

Contributorbronze Andy H I gave it a miss today due to a 48 hour hangover (getting old) and ran at 10am instead, pulled my calf after 2km and now worrying about completing jantastic and a 10k next Sunday. Karma? Sorry park run family.

Hi thanks for asking - but not good!! Three days rest then an easy run on Tuesday with no reaction. I had another rest day and then easy run this morning and it went again at 3.5k. Not as bad though and just feel tight when I walk so hopeful its not a tear. I've got a sports massage booked for tomorrow morning and getting some kinesio tape to wrap me up!! Still hopeful (bit worried!). WILL do it but will be sad of if I can't run unhindered.

Fingers crossed then. I think snow is likely to be my nemesis this weekend so going to volunteer at my local parkrun and then run inside.

Contributorgold Damian B Well that would be the "have your first parkrun dream" challenge complete! Needless to say it didn't go well ... nearly fell off a cliff, my Garmin watch didn't get a signal and I got lost soon after the start. Hope this wasn't a premonition!

Contributorgold Damian B Zero degrees, possible snow, already sounding interesting for Saturday. If I miss another I shall start to get withdrawal symptoms!

Contributorgold Damian B My first parkrun of the year hopefully tomorrow though looks like it could be a wet one.

Interesting to see different courses.

20150129201236-smouse

Oh definitely. This is where a car would come in handy but won't let that defeat me.

20140702045016-rissaroo

It does indeed make it easier!!

Contributorgold Alan S Hoping to get 2015 off to a great start with a 9am run tomorrow at my local parkrun. Forecast is for heavy rain so unless i chicken out, the run in the rain challenge on here should be sorted... :)

Damian B and Isabelle C encouraged this.

20150129201236-smouse

I need the ice on the course to melt so I can run so 50/50 at the moment if it will be cancelled or not :0(

Contributorgold Damian B Tribesports providing parkrun T-shirts? Didn't see that one coming! http://www.parkrun.com/news/2014/12/30/introducing-free-milestone-t-shirts-for-everyone/

20150129201236-smouse

I have now too. Seems I went with the majority :0)

When i read the news earlier about the Adidas deal ending i dared to think tribesports might replace them. But i didn't believe it would actually happen. Amazing! Hopefully this will attract many new people to the TS community who hadn't previously heard of us.

Lindy S encouraged this.

20150129201236-smouse

I was wondering that too. I imagine the link they have to vote for the volunteer T-shirts might insist on creating an account but I don't know about that.

Damian B Park Runners Tribe

Contributorgold Damian B Likely to be running again tomorrow so if anyone else is in the UK then still looking to complete this - Run concurrently with another TS member from somewhere else

20150130205402-violachick

I will be starting at 9:00 in Southampton Parkrun. Not expecting great things, as the course has changed to include more gradual incline and I struggle at the moment with even a small hill! I'll give it my best, all the same. :)

Damian B encouraged this.

20150129201236-smouse

Well good luck with it! Think it might be a bit chilly tomorrow but if my foot is ok I might try for my best ever time but we shall see.

Sports-iqgold Kevin G answered the question Where's your local parkrun?

My local park run is in Centralpark, Chelmsford, a single lap on Tarmac and some grass, modified if too slippery and muddy. To be honest I have never done it, but it is nearly 2 years old and well established. a g...
