parkrun #84

A tough day at the parkrun office.

The Son wasn’t budging from his bed this week and I couldn’t blame him. He had competed at an inter-school athletics competition the day before and had come home exhausted. He had also come home in a foul mood because they entered him into the middle distance events and not the sprints. parkrun has given him the ability to run the longer distances but he’s a much faster sprinter than a middle distance runner.

Other Dan joined me and had a much better run than me. My legs weren’t in it today. My shoulders tensed up in the first km. I just felt awful the whole way round. My dual consolation were the scrambled eggs on toast that would be waiting for me at the café and surely I couldn’t have a such bad run at the Eagles 10k tomorrow?
