While in Melbourne, I try to visit my “home” Point Cook Parkrun when I can.
I haven’t been to many, but this weeks visit to Parkrun was extra special, because I ran it with Kayla.
I asked Kayla if she would like to do Parkrun, and aim to run 5km.
I know she can clearly run 3km with ease, after she ran the Stawell Easter Fun run a few weeks prior.
However, with this week has been a heavy week of sporting activities, with the following:
Kayla is a determined cookie, she was adamant to give parkrun a go.
So I signed her up, and set her Point Cook as her “home” location.
With our barcodes printed, we set off to do this run with 4:1 intervals. Run for 4 minutes, walk for 1 minute.
Well she finished in a time of 35:53.
This is her first 5km ever, and the furthest she has ever run.
Know we know what she is capable of, we can only improve from there.
