I’m a terrible runner and I imagine I always will be. However, this weekend I decided I’d do a Parkrun for speed training rather than boring intervals. I’m not sure if this makes any sense as part of training for a middle distance triathlon, and if anyone has any advice I’d love to hear it. In any case, I thought it would be a good way to see whether my fitness has improved since my last Parkrun about a year ago. It turns out it has. My previous best was 28.30 (like I say, I’m a terrible runner), however today I managed to do it in 26.50. I pretty much had to destroy myself to do it, but a good result nonetheless and one step closer to the goal of a 25.00 5k.
Now that I’ve got that out the way, time to get back to half Ironman related training!
