The Great South Run Training

Great South Run

What: The Great South Run, 10 Mile run
When: 16th October 2022
Supporting: Nicholls Spinal Injury Foundation (NSIF)
Who With: Team Claire

My commitment to making time to go running is much better than my commitment to finding time to write about it…

The training over the last month is going very well, despite some setbacks including Covid (recovered) and Dudley and Eunice (unsurprisingly, it’s even harder to run in a howling wind).

A week away in sunny Tenerife gave me the fitness boost I needed, and then it was back to the UK for a complete mix of weather – today it was a run with some snow, but a glorious morning sky!

Sunny Tenerife and chilly East Sussex!

I have just completed week 6 of my BBC Couch to 5k app, running for a solid 25 minutes with the help of Jo Whiley to keep me motivated (she’s very good, I would recommend the app and her as a trainer).

I never thought I would be saying this, but I do actually look forward to my morning run and as the weeks go by, I know I am getting closer to being able to complete the Great South Run.

If you fancy joining Team Claire too, getting fitter and raising some much-needed funds for Nicholls Spinal Injury Foundation (NSIF), please get in touch!
