I've managed to get myself a place in this years Great North Run! I'm overwhelmed at this news - I've lived in South Shirlds for all of my 43 years and never dreamed that I would ever be apart of this smazing event! And here I am now, thanks to C25k getting ready for this massive event! Huzzah!!
Now, my training is intermittent due to work schedules and babysitting but I've managed to stick to getting one long run in a week and I'm up to 7 miles. Shall I continue with this training? Trying to add one mile per week with a little run in between? I've also heard that as long as I can so 9 miles that that should be enough as on the day the extra shouldn't be too much to ask? I'm not sure, I think I should get to as close as possible, baring in mind the run is at the beginning of September and I don't have much time left!
Any thoughts/advice would be appreciated
Thanks all! X
