|Coming around towards the end of the first lap, I gapped young Steve Buchanan.|
|Near the end of the lap, young Steve Buchanan seems to have closed on me.|
|33 year old Loughborough singlet (vest), I can still squeeze into it but looks like I have to give up the beers!!|
|Near the end of the second lap and I have done a lot of overtaking|
|Just about to finish (3rd lap) and I did get tangled up with the youngster in blue as I passed him. The pain and the strain were showing.|

Sundays run was a tour through redneck country Narangba Dakabin and Kallangur. I only got hooted the once by a feral (presumably toothless) bozo but I am unlikely to run this particular loop again. There is no footpath and I spent time running in the road debris (glass and stones) as it mingles with the grass verge. There were also too many road junctions to run pass requiring slowing downs for traffic checks.
Monday Rest day - sore knees (tendinitis).
Saturday's parkrun performance saw me topping the Global parkrun age % performance ladder. Some 46,000 runners this week and my 92.78% was #1.
I was perhaps fortunate that lots of the top masters were competing in Brazil in the World Masters Athletics track and field championships.

In my event the M50 5000m results showed strong competition for the medals (won by a local with two Brits taking 2nd and 3rd). 54 runners = quite some field even when split into 3 heats.
