What I meant is that when I cross the finish line they gave me a card. Then I queued up for about a minute in order for them to scan my barcode and card so wouldn't that add extra time or is it just me???????
Anyway my GPS tracker said I did 5km in 24 min exact but I think that parkrun time is going to be slower.
In terms of how it went in general I really wanted to be in the top 10 women so as a result I ran way too fast in the beginning and then exhausted myself towards the end allowing people to pass me which was annoying
usually looking at previous results sub 25 would have got me in the top 10 but I think lots more people ran it today because of the weather. Had I have paced better I probably could have done it much more quicker. According to my GPS my pacing was as followed
1km - 4:16
2nd km - 4:58
3rd Km - 4:27
4th Km - 4:40
5th km - 5:44
I notice that in all my outside runs my pace is very inconsistent which maybe why I don't do well on treadmills as I am forced to run at the same pace. I also need to practice on hill running as that also slowed me down quite a bit.
Just waiting for the online results to see how I did but I don't think it was terrible considering it was my first time
