Blog2024 ≫ Runuary day 20

I get up when I want except on Saturdays!

Did not feel rested when I got up this morning, but along to parkrun anyway. Weather supposedly a lot warmer today, like five or six degrees, but didn't feel it and still icy underfoot. Not super on-time so started at the back again but made up a lot of time overtaking people. Doing quite well but then my lace came undone and I got overtaken a lot again. Quite a good sprint finish so my overall performance is better than my official time:

Folkestone parkrun results for event #420. Your time was 00:25:01.

Congratulations on completing your 143rd parkrun and your 130th at Folkestone parkrun today. You finished in 64th place out of a field of 354 parkrunners. You were the 56th male and came 8th in your age category VM50-54. Take a look at this week's full set of results on our website. Your PB at Folkestone parkrun remains 00:20:50. Your best time this year remains 00:24:18.

If it weren't for the shoelace and starting at the back it could be my best time. As it is, it's my best 20th of January time ever! The time above is parkrun time, starting at 9am but my time below is my time, took me fifteen seconds or so to get over the start line.

Free energy for four hours today from Octopus. Get on board here1. We'll be out for most of that but I will set the tumble dryer before I go!

We're going to take a walk into Hythe see if we can get some lunch.

Pop Will Eat Itself and Atom Seed today in 1991 at Brixton Academy, in that London. I wore a lab coat, like an idiot. My mate I went in said there was a mention of this in the Melody Maker.

Sunny intervals and a fresh breeze, 4 - 5℃.
