Thanks yeah, very happy to get to HM and, yes, do want to break 30 mins for 5k. That best time was a training run just last week, so I’m getting there :D

Main focus this year will be 10k races, planning to do half a dozen or so, next one is on Easter Saturday. Hoping to get my PB down (1h 6m currently). Also have another HM lined up in October. Can’t see me ever getting up to a full marathon, a HM seems quite long enough, so very impressed with anyone who has managed that distance, well done!

As an occasional Reading parkrunner (I usually do Prospect parkrun a couple of miles away from there) I hope to be running with you sometime in the near future.

Not really in any kind of running form at the moment - at least not for me. Did a 2:19 half marathon in Fleet last month and have struggled at Parkrun lately, but not long ago I did a 55ish minute 10k at Goodwood.

Don't think there's any secret for me to unlock though. Just need to lose an additional stone of weight I don't need

One minor change to update :wink: :D

After 3 months out with sciatica, I returned on 23rd Feb to coincide with the first running of "Cancer 5k your way", with my local parkrun being the first in the Greater Manchester region to set it up. The movement has a 5k being run towards the end of each month and is for people suffering with cancer, families of those affected and medical professionals involved in their care. I lost my mum to it 12 years ago so the connection is a bit tenuous but I wanted to show my support and planned to go round gently to test my back out. The man who set it up has terminal prostate cancer and went from training for a half-marathon to his world being upended overnight. There's evidence that running during and after treatment has beneficial health effects and hence the 5k Your Way. I set off chatting to a man called Graham who also has terminal cancer but gets out and does so much running that I was in awe of him. We were going very gently and at one point I thought of moving off ahead to test myself out, but decided to stay with him as he was finding it hard, having run each of the previous 6 days! :o We got round in a shade under 39 minutes - my back tested out ok, pleasant company and if you can find one of these nearby, it's worth considering joining in. It turned out Graham had driven 2 hours to support the organiser!

Since then I've managed 7 more and without any reaction in my back yet. I timed the end of March for my 50th run (and the next 5k your way) and my times are coming back down as I get more into shape. Last Saturday saw me clock 22:45 which is my 5th fastest parkrun ever! The plan is to crack 22 for the 5k and 47 for the 10k this year.

Good stuff el p. Some very motivating stories in the parkrun world.

Minor niggles are stopping me improving (less training runs in between = less fitness). Not sure if I lost those niggles and got fit again that I'd ever get near my sub 24 days as I was perfectly fit then (and below 10 stone with a concave belly!) and age is catching up.

Took me 3 and a half years but I finally got my 50 shirt this week :D

Is anyone else doing the Running Challenges? I was 1 second off the Groundhog achievement last week.

Well played. Thought I was late joining this thread but I did my 50th run back in 2014 (Xmas Day) Image though I didn't get my shirt til th next summer due to delays.

Not heard of the challenges thing but I'll have a go.

Did my first for a while - 20.36. About a minute and a half behind my best from 5 years ago - not sure I can get back to that level but will give it a go.
