So its been a longgg while since I have last posted a Blog.

In which time AAA LOOOT has happened, I’ve gotten engaged to my absolute amazing Girlfriend, had a very enjoyable 25th Birthday, visited my best friend in Spain & spent fancy week in Barcelona, and that is before any mention of what I have been working on business wise.

As a lot of you may be aware I set up a Fitness Camp in mid-June which runs from the Startastic Studio in Cullercoats when its wet, or outside on the beautiful Sea front when it is dry.
Yeah that’s going really well, I have gathered a great bunch of committed individuals who absolutely smash it every week.

But what prompted todays ‘Blog’ was my most recent Park Run.

Those who don’t know what Park Run is, it is a community event that happens every week at 9am up and down the country created for the community to get together and put themselves through the paces of a 5k.
You often see people running with Prams, dogs, children, partners, or just by themselves.
The whole event is timed from start to finish so it can be used as a great tool for timing your 10k and really pushing yourself along the way, utilising the buzz off all of the other runners and the volunteers that direct and cheer you on throughout the course.
This morning myself & Alex decided to get involved in the Rising Sun Park Run. The latest one to hit the North East, located in Benton (by the BIG ASDA). As I am currently training for the Great North Run it defo couldn’t come in wrong to throw a couple of these in the mix.
I love running but I find it incredibly hard to drag myself onto a Park Run, I find the Whitley Bay one so tedious– and its always really really windy down there.

So yeah we gave this one a go and quite frankly I really enjoyed it. It’s an off road trail that takes you around the park and because you are surrounded by walls of trees and foliage it just never gets boring.
I felt like I was in green maze which constantly kept my mind ticking over and focused throughout.
As it is so new the numbers still aren’t massive, however it worked perfectly for this course with consideration for the width of the track etc.

Where as in Whitley Bay you just loop round a couple of times and it really lacks excitement.

So that’s it, just a quick little update on life and the Newest Park Run in the North East that you should 100% give a bash.

Oh and today I got a brand new PB of 24.58 – I will be challenging this next week!!
