First run last night after almost 20 years of no exercise and I have to be honest, I feel great this morning. The first 5 minutes of brisk walking almost gave me the opportunity to psychologically get into the mindset that I was about to run ( jog ). The final couple of 60 second runs I did find hard, and my god are my thighs throbbing this morning!!!, but certainly having great running trainers with plenty of bounce helped. I must have sweated at least 1lb of weight off!!
I'm really looking forward to Wednesdays run, only difference being is I'm going to start doing the runs first thing in the morning as opposed to last thing at night.
I'm also completely changing my eating habits... Today I have home made thick vegetable soup with brown bread for lunch with a pasta dish for dinner. Not so much changing what I eat, although I'm cutting out the sugar in coffees and the packets of crisps, but more the quantity .. trying to eat little more often as opposed to the usual stuffing my face in the evening.... again, something my belly is just going to have to get used to...oh..and plenty of water ( hopefully that'll trick my stomach into thinking I'm full!)
So, here's to Wednesday .. will keep updating this blog for anyone remotely interested in knowing how an overweight, forty odd year old guy with no exercise for years habit is getting on.
Also, it really helps with my incentive to hear from other folks on here and I do appreciate any replies I get. All advice welcome!!!
