A nice warm day, gentle breeze. A good run, and broke my current parkrun PB at a time of 25:48, and cam in 38th position. Best position so far. 😀

My SmartWatch said I beat my 5K PB with 25:52, but it didn’t register as a new on the Nike+ site. EDIT: Looks like it just took a long time to register on the site.

And I have to say, parkruns really are a good way to improving your speed. When I started, my 5Ks were around the 30min+ mark. Now, I’ve been getting down, and have nearly taken off 5 minutes from my average 5K time. Seriously, if there is a parkrun near you, go try it out. It’s almost race-like in its organisation, even though it is isn’t a competition, so it is a good way of getting a feel for how a race might feel like.
