mild but overcast conditions for my second attempt at the Falkirk Parkrun on Saturday.
Preparation was not ideal – a good swally on Friday night and last minute panic at the 10p portaloo in the park (be warned – Park bogs don’t open until 10am – nightmare if you like a good pre-race ‘clearout’!) meant no warm up.
Tried to position myself near the front. Some fast runners the week before in low 16s but they didn’t show this week which meant my 20:11 flattered to deceive and got 7th position. A young lad from Linlithgow was 1st in 17:30-ish.
Better toilet strategy next time I think will hopefully secure a fabled sub-20.
