Hi all, Happy New year. I did Parkrun on New years day as my first walk event, well to tell the truth I did 100m jog at the start and finish but walked the rest and only 3 minutes slower than the walk/run I did at the end of October.
Due to my retirement from running due to a worn out hip that is only going to get worse if I run I aim to set WPB's this year - Walking Personal Best.
Doing 2 races so far, runs that have generous cut off times and I can walk them.
I just need to get faster at the swim and bike and then I could walk the run in triathlons.
My walking marathon time is around 7 hours, so faster than a long ago run marathon of 5 and a half hours. Still getting my head around it but hoping to still do some events with generous cut offs.
Had a rare saturday off so parkran and p.b.ed for parkrun not the same as old when young p.b.'s but even so when I was young not only was there no parkrun but they didn't even have stopwatches.
Hello Gobi, I remember your name from when I first started on here many years ago. Forward motion in any sport is a success nowadays.
Cake that marathon sounds a bit hilly, will have to see how I do at Larmer before committing to any other walks. But bacon back at yours afters sounds good.
I managed 6 miles of walking in total on Sunday, split up 4 + 2. Hip aching this morning but seems ok now.
Don't feel old Gobi, I have had to stop running this year after 34 years. I didn't join RW until late 2010.
I am now setting WPB's - walking personal bests.
