Tell you what. I'm going to shake my legs out a bit today, then have a three day mini-taper. Possibly scream to a 5k PB at Gateshead Parkrun on Saturday, then I really feel like having a proper go at the GNR.

I've done a lot of YORM-type events in the past (3 Beachy Heads, 6 Hobbles, loads of LDWA events, Wharfedale marathon) and find the quicker I can get moving again the better. I have a dead flat three miler I do on grass the day after the race / event, or the day after that and just jog and walk as best I can. It's amazing how much better I feel for doing it even if it's agony setting off ;-):-O

PB at Gateshead park run, thats brave the day before the GNR. Both Newcastle and Riverside parkruns are quicker courses imho

Must check other Parkrun courses then. Suggested Gateshead as monsenb1 invited us to go, but if there's quicker nearer Castle Leazes, then I might do it.

I reckon my 5k PB is soft, though. The course that I set it on has two very tight switchbacks.

From castle leazes your closest will be Newcastle parkrun on the Town Moor. As long as its not windy that course is potentially v quick, my parkrun PB was run there. Gateshead and Sunderland are fairly hilly in comparison, Durham is fairly flat but does have a decent section on grass, Riverside is flat with only a short section of grass. All that said however Gateshead is probably one of the prettiest and makes a good challenge.

Got something to say?

Right, I've slightly mistimed things. My A race is Mablethorpe Marathon on Oct 7.

The way things...
