Great South Run training✔️ and my son's a "proper runner"!

Second 13k run done this morning, so feeling very pleased with myself🙂. Can't say it was all easy going but I plodded on, part road work and part trail. It was lovely out this morning here; overcast, a few degrees cooler than of late and a nice breeze! Still haven't really addressed extra fuel whilst running but seemed OK with a little water and a couple of blackberries snatched from a bush as I passed by!! (Good ol' nature's larder!). So far, legs feeling better than the first time I did this distance - and have been out on the bike too this afternoon to accompany my 12yr old son who has just done his first 25 minute run on the programme. Magic moment when he turned to me at the end and said "She said I'm a proper runner!" Laura, I love you! 😀
