Going clubbing

I ran my third Wimbledon parkrun yesterday.  Glorious weather, lots of familiar Windmiler faces, great seeded flapjack at the finish and a Wimbledon parkrun PB*.

I followed it up this morning with a trip to Farley Heath, to run for the Windmilers in the MABAC league.  As everyone who runs earns points for their club, it’s a case of the more the merrier, and a great way to dip a toe into the world of club competitions.  The run itself was just under four miles**, undulating*** and varied underfoot****.  And it’s all good trail training for Thunder Run.

*Apparently, I’ve improved by 282 seconds in 16 months.  Yay.

** OK, pedant.  Just over 3.5 miles.

*** Hilly

**** Sand, mud, grass, dirt, stile and road.  This route had them all.

    Well done on the PB! I was hoping to do Thunder Run this year but things put paid to that. Maybe next year when I am hardcore again.

    That’s an improvement of over a minute every 4 months (because obv you couldn’t work that out yourself) which is amazing! Well done!
