Context is everything

Image by the author

I ran Walthamstow parkrun on Saturday in my slowest time for many months.

Aside from being ill recently, I lost fitness over the summer because of my eye, the ground on the parkrun was very muddy, puddles were all over the place and grip was at a premium. I exceeded my usual running heart rate as I tried to get through the mud in new shoes.

In absolute terms it was my slowest time; in context it was a reasonable time.

Context is everything.
