.. and definitely against me.
So, erhmm .. what do you see as being important in ParkRun’s requirements, eh ?
I had, last Sunday, ordered on-line a credit-card-sized thingy with my name and barcode on it. Didn’t make it here by yesterday’s mail, dammit ! Oh well says I, I’ll just do as they say and print mine off for tomorrow which I would’ve done had my Pixma not had a hissy fit and chosen not to function. It wasn’t the Wi-Fi connection or suchlike but your actual mechanical problem buggerit. No barcode no participation: the ParkRun site makes that crystal clear.
I was actually relieved on account of having worried myself into quite a state regarding my ability to last anything like the distance. I decided that I wasn’t meant to start today but spend the next week getting in some trial walks: drew up a few Google maps with that in mind.
There’s nice – the delightful little park a few doors up ..
And that kilometres takes in some of the very pretty Bulla Road environs – should be indeed pleasant !
And to replicate ParkRun – were I full of bullets –
So that’s enough practice for a squadron, let alone one old broad ..
I doubt I’ll ever do that 5k walk around my area – it’s not all flat ! But the two single kilometres should be fine for ascertaining my degree of – not fitness, no .. of ability to walk. And then I can go to Maribyrnong without having to be scared because of not knowing if I’m going to collapse or somethin ..
