IF YOU would like to get fitter, then you may want to consider taking part in a parkrun.
Let us dispel a few myths. it is not a race. You will not be lining up against a lot of Mo Farahs. There are participants of all standards.
The key word is participants. You take part at your pace.
It is a perfect way to gauge your fitness and how you are improving throughout the year.
If you live in Thurrock, then the nearest parkrun is at Orsett Heath.
Get there for 8.30 am for a 9am start.
The course is two laps around the heath.
You will need to register at www.parkrun.org. But you only need to do that once.
There are people who took part in their first parkrun in January 2015 and have not liked back since.
