Avenham park is a 5minute walk from Preston railway station, so if you are ever stuck waiting for a train on a nice sunny day, a short walk to the park will improve the experience tremendously.
alternatively, if you are a Parkrun tourist, you can be guaranteed to find the run if you travel by train!
It was a lovely spring morning and I made it to Parkrun for the first time in ages. Not a great run for me. It was pleasant in that I chatted to a couple of people, but I didn’t really have the will to push hard, Or at least it felt hard but my HR monitor said that I could do more but my brain said that I couldn’t. Either way, a few minutes slower than my PB.
Immediately I questioned my 80/20 routine but a quick calculation soon put me right, although I did an hour of high intensity last Sunday, during the week I have only do 30 mins of low intensity running, not the 4 hrs that would have made the ratio 80/20. Today was a bit of a limbo, not low intensity, not hard enough to be high intensity.
no serious plans for tomorrow, so hopefully I can get up early and get a long easy run in, get the balance right!
