    I also prefer to run in the rain Harry, although I did almost get caught in a thunderstorm which almost made me cack my pants .
    About the shins and pains. Whatever you do don't push yourself. Especially if it's pain and not an ache. Better to take two weeks out and get back into it quickly than push yourself for a few extra sessions and end up putting yourself out for a few months. I learnt that the hard way.

    I'd say it's more of an ache. Managed week 8 day 1 on Friday without it being anymore painful. We'll see how it goes!

    Good luck with week 8. I found that whilst it got that bit harder towards the end, I was actually enjoying it more as the weeks went by.

    I did my first Parkrun on Saturday in Bedford Park. had a really good run. It was nice to do a group run rather than just a training schedule. There were 250 of us doing a 5k, I came in a creditable (I think) 176th. I'm not too sure about the timings. My Endomondo tracker had me do the 5k in 29:25 whereas the course that they had marked. Endomondo had as 5.17k which I did in 29:59.

    I still enjoyed it though and plan to make it a regular feature.

    There's quitee a few park runs dotted around the area, MK, Bedford, Aylesbury, Northampton, Buckingham. Bucks one is new but my old man says it's a very good route.

    Congratulations @HarryMonkey I might do one or two again in the summer if my shins feel up to it.

    The good thing about the Bedford one is that the start line is a 5 minute warm up walk away from my front door

    Fingers crossed for the shins.

    Managed my first 10k last night ... admittedly it was on the treadmill, came in at around 64 minutes. Was hot and drenched but well chuffed at running that far
