My Week In Training #23 - Great North Run

The GNR is under 4 weeks away! That is unbelievably close. The photo above was a health assessment I went to at the Nuffield hospital in Jesmond last Monday but I've got a post planned telling you all about it coming in the next few weeks. 
Monday 8/8 

10k run I completed it in 1 hour and 7 minutes which I was super proud of as it was rather hilly. 

Tuesday 9/8 

Rest day. 

Wednesday 10/8

As part of my training programme we did interval training. Where we ran for 1 min hard as we could with a 2 min recovery 10 times with a 4 min break in the middle. 

Thursday 11/8

Rest day. 

Friday 12/8 

2.5 mile run no efforts just a nice little ramble out. 

Saturday 13/8 

I went along to Gateshead 10k trail which I entered back in April. Let's just say I was rather worse for wear for this race. It was a miracle I made it round!

Sunday 14/8 

My longest run before the Great North Run 12 miles!! Managing to do this has filled me with so much confidence. I know I'll be able to complete 13.1 miles now. 

I feel like I've found my running mojo again. I really wanted to give up the last few weeks. I thought I'd just run the races I've entered and then hang up my trainers for good. But I think my I've fallen back in love with running and I'm super excited for the GNR!! 

Don't forget you can sponsor me here as I am running for St Cuthbert's Hospice in Durham, which is on reason I didn't give up training when I felt like I could!
