Park Series (UFO #2 Stockton) 47:27 [3] 5.63 km (8:26 / km)
shoes: adidas purple

Default position - wore old shoes. Emerging course setter APl made an interesting course around rockman's old stomping ground. No warm up and APl admitted his first course setting mistake was to make all the open running into the sea breeze!
No nav challenge (as with most of this style of event) but very pleasant to be out. Even more encouraging was to see the wide usage of the big parklands in this area by/for kids afternoon activities. Congratulations to all the coaches!
Rain held off.

Tough going as usual but very pleased that I could slog out 2 runs at the 40 and 50 min mark after a very intense leg session.

warm up/down (walking) 10:00 [3]
shoes: black+blue

Late again, but was due in part to stop/go (or not go) roadwrorks.

Park Run (Greenway) 38:14 [3] 5.25 km (7:17 / km)
shoes: black+blue

Didn't go to briefing and was puzzled by change in Finish position. Partway through first lap the leaders came steaming past and in a very different place to usual. I didn't feel they were going incredibly fast and I didn't think I was going that slowly and then I had a funny feeling - maybe the course had changed... and maybe I'll be doing more than 2 loops. Not knowing, I decided I'd do the amount of laps that closest resembled my usual time. As it turned out it was 3 laps but in keeping with parkrun philosophy if a course is changed it can't be under 5km. rockman who was timing, during Finish chat time, learned that the extra distance was about 250m longer.
But I didn't know that, and when I saw my time I was rather disappointed as running conditions were perfect- overcast, cool with just a little breeze. So if it is indeed an extra 250m I did another PB - in my terms.

(rest day)

Avoidance of exertion - to lick my skin specialist wounds.

So my scream at yesterday's event was warranted. A house about 1 km (direct line) was struck by lightning causing quite a bit of damage. It is also within 1 km from our home.
9 AM

gym class (Body Pump) 1:00:00 [3]
shoes: white puma

Feeling fairly much in control - really enjoyed the class except for the bit where I accidentally hit someone on the head with my bench.
