It’s just over a month till the Great North Run (which I think will be my final race of the season this year in order to try and avoid the winter running slump – I have looked at a couple in October and November but I think it’s more sensible if I finish in September this year, especially seeing as I’m getting more and more tempted to take up the free guaranteed 2020 place that the London Marathon have gifted me for being a slowpoke).
As such, I’m building up my distances every week, and was back out doing 14k today, which is two-thirds of the GNR distance done already. 15k next week!
Geth and I went out for lunch afterwards and I allowed myself the post-run treat of waffles and ice cream. We’re going for an Indian meal out with the family tonight as well! Will have to be good again next week.
