Out of shape so planned to run this as a bit of fartlek. KM1 was jogging/chatting with Ian and two ladies he know. I then pushed km2 with normal Parkrun tempo. Then slowed back down but HR stayed annoyingly high. Planned to push km4 again but as it came, I felt I do not have the fitness to do so properly so just relaxed back. Sped up a bit towards the end. There was a 9 year old boy running with/near me towards the end, bloody fast for that age!!! Amazing.

HR bloody high for a deliberately slow jog back! It is clear just how out of shape I am :(
Alternately, the new HR strap measures HR higher than the previous one did as I am getting consistently higher measurements by about 5BPM usually, even on my MAXHR. Or both. I guess - I should get back in shape and then I'll see.
