Hello all I have not posted for ages but have been reading my daily emails to keep in touch with you all. I have been running once a week for quite a while now covering approx 7.5km in 48 mins using Podrunner intervals. I am still trying to improve my speed. As the weather gets warmer I will try some more 10k runs as only done one so far. I have continued my Spin, Metafit and Body Pump classes at the gym each week too. I have not been running or to the gym for 2 wks as experiencing constant backache in my middle and lower back so thought I would give my body a rest, However there has been no improvement, so should I start my exercise routine again or rest a little longer?
I still need to do something about losing some weight to reduce my obese BMI and as I have tried so many diets previously and always regain the weight I am not sure whether to embark on the NHS choices diet plan or give the 5:2 diet a try? Decisions....Any advice would be much appreciated.
