Contributorgold Damian B Slow run tomorrow for me (need to get another point toward my T-shirt so not resting completely!) ready for 10km race on Sunday. Just need to pick a suitable pace.

encouraged this.

I'd go really slow, like at least 5:30 pace. You want to take nothing out of your system for Sunday.

Kevin G encouraged this.

20150403160238-smouse

Yes was thinking something like that, if one of my friends runs it she would be a bit slower than this so would run around with her. Its a shame though because is likely first week it won't be muddy :0(

Alan S and Kevin G encouraged this.

Patience Damian. One running target for a weekend is more than enough. ;) There'll be other dry, sunny days. Talking of which, weather is looking fantastic for my parkrun tomorrow. :)

Marco C and Danyka P encouraged this.

20150403160238-smouse

It certainly is, 2 years ago I'd probably just be getting out of bed even now!

Contributorgold Damian B http://midlandsrunningguide.com/news/parkrun-prodigy

Two weeks ago, Gabrielle Hall, an 8-year-old from Stockton-on-Tees, set a world record performance for her age at Stewart parkrun, completing the 5k course in just 20:30.

Gabrielle, who trains with her granddad John, 56, was the first female finisher and an incredible 27th place out of 294 competitors. The time is thought to be 12 seconds quicker than the previous record, which was held by a girl of the same age in Holland.

On her approach to training, Gabrielle’s mum commented: “She has a watch and times herself. All of the family go along to watch her and cheer her on. She has been desperate to break the age grade record at the park, and when she passed us she said ‘mum I’m going to do it’.

Despite the win, Gabrielle feels she could have gone quicker, and has very definite plans for the future: "I'm proud and very happy. My dream is to be an Olympic runner."

As the time occurred at a parkrun event, Gabrielle’s performance won’t stand as a ratified world record, although the 8-year-old has set her sights on setting an official record at a road race in Holland.

Contributorgold Damian B Going to be a leisurely parkrun for me tomorrow (hope nobody draws me into a race!). Lots of travelling in the afternoon and dancing in the evening so need to keep my legs relatively fresh.

20150403160238-smouse

You're relatively new then at Canterbury I assumed (don't know why) that it has been around longer, maybe because its a better known place. Will be just the 15th here at Daventry where I'll run/jog this weekend.

encouraged this.

Yes we started last year, at the University of Kent. We were hoping to start the previous October but the route wasn't acceptable to parkrun and it took a while to fix that! Rolling now and we often have 50-70 runners :)

Amanda C and Lynn W encouraged this.

20150403160238-smouse

That's a nice number for building a little community, think the bigger ones must lose that.

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.

20150107085817-andywhamilton

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.

20150403160238-smouse

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.

Andy H encouraged this.

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.

20140702045016-rissaroo

Interesting to see different courses.

20150403160238-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.

20150403160238-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/

20150403160238-smouse

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

Shelia B encouraged this.

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.

20150403160238-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.
