Well I did it guys! The great north 5k done and dusted!
What a great morning, the crowds were out in force and the atmosphere was brilliant!
I'm pleased to say the tape helped my shins, not even a twinge from them which is great! But....something happened to my calf, I'm not sure what, but it felt like it was going to pop so I walked for a minute, started up again then had to stop again and stretch it.
It's still giving me grief now but I'm stretching it gently and massaging it so fingers crossed its nothing too bad! Just when my shins were behaving themselves too!
Anyway it didn't spoil the day, I absolutely loved it! My time is 35.37 so not too bad with the two stops and I have my medal and I feel like a kid on Christmas morning!
Thank you so much for all your support on here, it means so much. Oh and I wore the capris!! x
