My PB at Guildford Parkrun is 23:12, and my best ranking is 77.
My current time at Guildford Parkrun is 25 mins (5:00 min/km), and ranking is near 120.
To rank in the top 50, I would need to achieve a time of 22 mins or lower. This would require running at an average pace of 4:24 min/km.
Losing 3 mins will not be easy. It’s a good target – challenging but not impossible.
Lazy morning in bed reading.
Long walk with boys in the Chantries woods – my favourite running space in Guildford. Can’t run, so made it a hilly walk with the boys.
Cool shower, warm shave.
A spicy naked burrito for lunch, drowned with a free Coke zero.
A pint by the river to soak the sun, reading a saucy, spunky book in public 😉
Followed it up with an ice cream from the van, enjoyed while walking by the river – through waggy dogs, playful kids, picnicking families, and a few sunning beauties.
Finally, had a lovely cortado before the ride home, and picked up a biscotti for later.
Now, back with the boy, with cuddles, and whining, belly rubs and bum scratches.
The best bit: no vomit anywhere == the grub stayed in his tummy 🙂
Oh, and back watching the French Open. (Djoko just won his match)
At Waterstones, Guildford high street.
I wasn’t in a very chatty mood while volunteering at the park run this weekend. So, instead, I stood in a corner and took some photos on my phone. Here’s some of them…
And, below the fold, a few gifs…
21 years as a small town boy.
12 years in the biggest cities.
Now back settling into a small town, 1000s of miles from my first one.
Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, you send the heart racing down memory lane every time. How, I love you!
