Great South Run 2011

Sorry for the lack of posts - it will be like this for the next few weeks as I am on an academic course and the workload is high, so blogging and crafting will have to take a back seat for a while.


Luckily I still have fairly free weekends (barring my unusually busy social life!).


Last weekend I took part in the BUPA Great South Run.  I have run it twice before, using the term run fairly loosely.  It is a 10 mile fairly flat course and I enjoy it.  I managed to run almost non stop (excepting for water breaks as I can't run and drink) but unfortunately I finished it in my slowest time yet.  So I am going to apply for next year's and I am determined to get under the 2 hour mark.




A thankfully small shot of me approaching the finish line.


 I have rewarded myself with some new running trainers and am determined to re-loose some weight as I think this affected my time, that and the fact I run slowly!

WOW! I would be crawling over that finish line (if at all). You can be very proud of yourself!

Well done! I doubt that I'd finish. Good on you for rewarding yourself.
