Park Run

I suspect the average prison inmate is a good bit younger than me, and probably a good bit faster tbh.

My new local parkrun is often fewer than 50 people, so I've had a few top 5 finishes, but no higher than 2nd. 

Most prison runs have fewer than 20 and many have fewer than 10. Some are a lot of laps as well!

I care not for your children, I care not for your wives, I care not for your country, I care not for your lives." - (c) Jim Boyes - "The Avenging Angel"

Like many I shall miss my park run for the next few months.   It can be obsessive and very satisfying. 

I have upped my solo runs.  Hopefully that can continue especially with lighter days and better weather coming. ?

I'll be doing the Hastings parkrun route at some point tomorrow. It's a very easy one to do whilst maintaining social distancing. I won't do it at 9am because I'm slightly fearful there will be a few people having the same idea of just turning up and doing it.

Yes, I know that they have asked people not to turn up and do 'unofficial' parkruns along the same route at 9am (or 9.30am) as they fear it may damage their reputation and good standing with the public.

I will probably do the Edinburgh route a couple of times, but maybe at times like Tuesday at 7am etc.
