I had a plan. It involved Pegwell Bay parkrun and the Viking Coastal Trail. It also involved an appointment with disgusting o’clock and about four hours in the car.
I ditched it.
I had another plan. It involved Queen Elizabeth parkrun, the South Downs Way, an appointment with early o’clock and a mere two hours in the car.
I ditched that too.
Instead, I opted for a much-needed early night, 9 blissful hours of sleep and a long run (well, 11 miles) on Wimbledon Common which ended with Wimbledon parkrun.
The Freyne club, or whatever 250 different parkrun events ends up being called, will just have to wait another week*.
*Estimated time to qualification: 5 years. And one week.
