Week 9 Run 2 - Great North Run vibes

Week 9 Run 2 - Great North Run vibes

Penultimate run and couldn't get more inspiration than doing it the morning of the Great North Run in the town where Mo Farah will cross the finish line. All of the set up interfered with my usual route, but it was great to see all the people and preparations. They were a good distraction for the first 10 minutes then I left the building crowds behind to run further up the coast. It really is mind over matter at the halfway point but I always feel like I could run a bit linger when Me Smooth says 60 seconds to go. Really chuffed that I have made it so far - only one run to go. I'm a bit away from making it to 5 K in 30 minutes but that something to aim for post graduation. Last run of C25K hopefully on Wednesday!

Well done us I just finished that run too. Nowhere near as exciting as the North run build up. Just dog walking hecklers! Looking forward to giant breakfast now.. enjoy your last run🤸

Nice place to do the penultimate the atmosphere must help a lot. Just tell me is that a man in a dog costume or a furry cyber man? Couldn't tell...

😂 I had to zoom in to get a closer look as I hadn't taken it in at the time. They are in fact Shrek and Donkey! I like the thought of a furry cyber man - not so threatening.
