Parkruns, days off and an unexpected second place
With no big races left for the year I've been taking it kinda easy on the running but still making it out 2 or 3 times a week and turning up for a few parkruns. 2 weeks ago I did Roundshaw Downs in 19:34 placing 5th and returned this morning running a few seconds slower but finishing in a surprising second. Whilst its only a weekly race and where you place is particularly dependent who turns up that day, it was a cool experience to be second by a long margin for most of the race and even at one point entertaining the idea I might win (although I knew deep down it was unlikely!).
