If you park in South Sheilds it will save you having to get back to Newcastle afterwards which could be a bonus. I went back to get a shower at the halls and pick my stuff up and it wasn't too bad, but I went with the "keep running all the way to the station" plan as much as was possible.
The evening meal was worth it for me as it was decent, cheap and I sat at tables full of people running the next day. I have to do plenty of Billy-no-mates eating alone with work as it is, so I didn't fancy going out. Didn't go with the breakfast though as I needed to eat earlier and had brought my own with me (Marmite bagel).
