Hi everyone! I haven't posted for a while. I graduated in June and since then have been doing two thirty minute runs and a 5km run a week. For me I just enjoy running so I've no aims to do a 10km or half marathon. Maybe a Park Run one day!
Today I did my first 40 minute 5km - knocking over 2 minutes off my previous best time. It was hard work though. I do a scenic route for my 5km runs. I do 2.5km one way then turn back. Going there is up hill but my last km is downhill so I run it really fast. Today I think I ran it too fast as my chest was hurting in my warm down walk! Made it home safely though and felt ok once I'd had some water.
Also I've finally lost weight. When I started the programme I weighted myself every week and didn't lose any weight but I found my clothes were getting looser so I guess fat was turning to muscle. Last week I weighted myself and I found I'd lost 5 pounds! I'm not dieting so it must be the running. Friends are also commenting that I look thinner.
As usual can't wait until my next run on Monday when my husband as promised to go with me! He hasn't been out running with me since I bought us matching running shirts! I wonder why?
