Hello, what a quick week it has been! I hope all of you guys over the pond are enjoying Labor Day today- it seems to have marked the end of summer here too; we have glorious sunshine, but there’s a slight nip in the air. Autumn is on its way.
We are now T-6 until the Great North Run, this time next week it will all be over. I’m really looking forward to it, I’ve heard so many great things about the course and the support!
Last week was a good one for me, from a training perspective. All of my classes were back in full swing, and I can genuinely say that I had DOMS from last Saturday right through until the Friday, and they affected most muscle groups at some point. Ouch, but good ouch!
This week I’m taking it a little easy, and saving myself for Sunday. Don’t get me wrong, I still plan to work hard at my classes, and I won’t be going on a huge carb binge, but I will be sensible and taper.
For anyone else running a race next weekend:
