Okay folks, I will apologise in advance, but as I approach my one-year runniversary, you may well have to suffer a few posts of this kind…
I had a medical last March, and my VO2 max came up as 31 ml. On the "average" spectrum for a woman of my age. This year, after a whole year of running, it has increased to 43 ml! I am now "Excellent" apparently.
This makes me very happy, as the reason I started running was purely to get fit and deal with some emotional imbalances. Not only has it done that, but I have lost 6Ib without even adjusting my diet. I don't really care about my weight as it is fine, but I can feel that 6lb loss (off my middle, which is the best place to lose).
Running is amazing, right?
