Take your pick.
Down? Finally? YES! Woohoo!
1.1kg gone this week. It’s about time! I haven’t had a decent loss like that for a looooong time. Except the week after the cruise which was still only 800g after putting on 900g the week before. This is the first time I’ve been below 71.4kg since I first seriously started trying to lose weight in late 2007 (having crept back up to 80+ several times in between).
Currently working my way through the C25K program as well instead of the prescribed runs. Today was Week 5 Day 2. I actually managed to jog 8 minutes straight. No excuses for the next fitness test since my last few have been under 7 minutes for the kilometre. No walking allowed…
This was a 5 minute warm up “brisk” (speed and temperature) walk, 8 minute jog, 5 minute walk, 8 minute jog, 5 minute cool down. There’s not a big difference between our jog/walk paces but there is a difference. I didn’t actually look at the plan before starting so we were expecting a 5 minute jog. We’d gone just over 6 minutes before I pulled the phone out to see if we’d just not heard the “walk” signal – to discover we had almost two minutes left! On Monday we struggled to do the full 5 minutes so this was progress, and we kept going for the full 8 minutes. We did walk a little in the second 8 minute section but all in all, we’re starting to not detest running quite so much. Progress all around.
Have a great Wednesday!
