Well done Curtis, great effort.

Can I ask how old you are now?

Great stuff.. please keep us updated with the 10ks.

Completed the Bradford 10k in an official time of 1:41:17 this morning, achieving my two aims of not finishing dead last (although I'm probably in the final 20 out of 3,000 or so runners) and not being moved to the pavement when the roads re-opened after 1h 45 minutes.

There are a couple of pictures here: https://twitter.com/Riffman117/status/1107299465264795648

Great work 

And I'm glad I'm not the only person who enters things with - don't finish last - in mind  Cheesy

Just went back to the beginning of this post (just over two years ago) where I started running and just managed 2.5k.

Two years later and sporadic attempts at running and I just managed a 20k training run at a decent pace too.

It just goes to show how your body can change and learn to do things you think are not possible.

Lets see what the next two years brings!

Cheers Red,

Recovery is slow now, I can only really run 3 times a week otherwise I start to pick up injuries.

Probably try park run tomorrow to see how that translates after a 20k two days before.

Goal for Parkrun is sub 20 minutes by the end of the summer, not really sure its achievable but that's my goal.

Current best Parkrun time 20:55 so somehow got to try and shave a minute off which seems impossible at the moment!

It went ok!

Fire Service College parkrun results for event #18. Your time was 00:20:45.

You finished in 4th place and were the 4th male out of a field of 192 parkrunners and you came 1st in your age category VM45-49.

Improved my pb by 10 seconds, so happy with that.

PB for parkrun now 20:36, still a long way to go to get sub 20 minute.

Ran my first official 10k race last weekend, came 12th with a time of 44:54. Was a tough hilly cross country course, found it very hard going.

Unfortunately, picked up a hamstring injury so now out for a while...

Nice! I've yet to clock an "official" sub 25m 5k, although Strava reckons i just about managed it a month or two back Smiley

The most rewarding thing for me in the last couple of years has been seeing my kids get involved in Park Run. Predominantly the Junior 2k runs, but the eldest who is just coming up 9 has now done a few of the main 5k's. A bit worried about the trajectory of when he'll be beating me now!

Junior parkruns are great and, like you, we've managed to get both girls participating in the 5k's too.  Both have now qualified for their '10' t-shirt's, one of which has arrived, the other isn't due until September!
