Hi everyone. Not checked in for quite some time.
After regular three runs a week post Couch and building up to 10k using ju-ju’s plan, life got a bit hectic late September and then I went down with flu.
Back on it a couple of weekends ago with a 3k whilst still recovering and last week did a 4k, 5k then 6k. This week looks set to be a 4k, 5k and 7k as I’m building back up to 10k for the last weekend in November for the Movember charity challenge.
My times are down on my regular runs, which isn’t a surprise, but I’m still much faster than my first go through ju-ju’s plan - I was doing 8 min/k the last time I just ran 6k (late July) and I did it in just over 7 min/k yesterday.
Up until yesterday I’ve been enduring the runs since flu, not enjoying them. Yesterday was the first run for a while with a big sense of achievement attached.
Weight continues to fall - I have about 3 stone still to lose. I always seem to have about 3 stone still to lose!! MyFitnessPal is helping; cutting myself some slack (but not going mad) at weekends isn’t! My belt bears the marks of evidence.
Enjoy your next run x
