The best weekend

Just a mile (and a bit) today…

…as it’s all short easy runs until Sunday’s Virtual GNR. So excited about the race and happy that the weekend is here! I’ll be starting by getting up early tomorrow and watching the elite-only Antrim Coast Half Marathon livestream. Mo Farah is competing, so it’ll be nice to watch him run this weekend, even if it’s not in Newcastle!

Geth and I went to Asda today and stocked up on all the stuff we need for eating over the weekend (I will be doing a lot of eating on Sunday). I also finished my work for the week and am really pleased that I can have the full weekend off! Not always a given at this time of year 🙂

I’ll be posting my running vlogs over the weekend, including my Virtual GNR vlog on Sunday, and will be back on Monday with a weekend update and a race review. A virtual race is not the same as an in-person race, but it’s the closest I’ve got right now, and I can’t wait!

Protein bars
We stocked up on a ton of protein bars at Asda. Protein bars are my favourite running food because they’re basically glorified chocolate bars but you’re allowed to call them ‘healthy fuel’. I expect I’ll get through a few on race day!
