My life is a bit like this at the moment but I am beginning to tip the balance (I think).
TVA session afterwards

I finally managed to make a *triumphant*!#! return to parkrun.
For those not in the know, parkrun is a free timed 5km run that started off in the UK and now takes place in many destinations Australia wide as well as other destinations worldwide.

It’s been a while so I took husb along with me for moral support as I wasn’t sure how long it would take me to do it and didn’t want everyone to have gone home before I finished.
I thought that this would be a good start to my half marathon training giving me a base to start from.
Now it may *look* like I am standing still but I can assure you I WAS running! Honest.
I found it ok and managed to get round in 35 minutes so certainly not very fast and waaaay off my fastest time BUT I ran it all and that was my aim. At least I have a starting point now and I can work my way onwards and upwards from this point.
We also took the kids swimming in the afternoon (first time for baby Bear) and I managed to fit a sneaky 10 lengths in.
All in all a pretty great week as far as achievements go I think.
