Parkrun Colwick

Got up early this morning and cycled over to Colwick Country Park to enter the weekly parkrun 5 k around the lakes.
Have not run at all for nearly three years but went out for two short runs this week to see if I could still do it.
It was extremely windy with a cold gale blowing straight off the Trent but we got round, although it was very hard going.
It is all very friendly and professionally run as well as being free to enter.
They have sent an email saying that I finished 94th out of 151 and was the 24th lady. My time was 29.46 and I finished second in my age category!
Will have to go again next week to try and beat my time. Just checked and the lady who beat me finished in 29.07 so I could catch her!
However, there are lots of fast ladies who didn't turn up this week so I'll try not to get carried away.
