Bi-centennial run!

Well, this morning I completed my 200th run logged on Runkeeper, and following nearly 4 weeks laid up with a horrible flu virus I was delighted to have worked my way back up to just over 5k today. Admittedly a slow 5k but I feel I am back on track.

I have apparently covered 1,115k and burned 79, 876 calories! Sadly I must have eaten all of them as I have lost precisely 0 pounds over that same period 😄

I think it's safe to say that running has become a habit with me, but somehow I am still amazed every time that I can do it.

Here's to the next 200 runs!

  • A wonderful milestone! Well done you!

  • Thanks Rob - glad to see that you enjoyed your parkrun this morning despite your misgivings!

  • Bril - welcome back. I've put weight on since starting to run! Think I'm eating more - people tell me its muscles but I don't think so, not after only 10 weeks! Terrific stats.

  • Thanks Buffy. Sadly the calories used do not ever seem to match the effort involved!

    I think you have to be a marathon runner to be able to claim that it's all about muscle weighing more than fat!

  • Well done Ully, I dont bother looking at the weight bit, I haven't lost any either, I just think it's moved about a bit, some wobbly bits are not quite so wobbly, but other things have (ahem..) grown, I.e calf muscles!

    Mx 😀

  • Yes, its just shifted hasn't it!

  • Wow, impressive stats, congratulations!

  • That's impressive. Congratulations. Hope those calories went on tasty titbits!!

  • Thanks. I lost 3.5 stone before starting the programme so really feel that the running has helped me to keep it off.

  • Thats a great achievement ully! Glad you're feeling better :)

    I did slimming world too in 2012, losing 2 stone, and im sure the running has helped ALOT in keeping it off, as i have to admit im not so strict with my diet nowadays, though thinking i might get back in that mode soon! just eaten porridge portion that must be 3 times that of SW size :X

    CONGRATULATIONS on those 200 runs! :)

  • Thanks all - I can't quite believe it! C25K has certainly started something.

  • Welcome back from flu. Those are excellent stats; I bet you never thought when you started that you'd be able to say "I've run over 1000Km". It's become a habit with me too and one I really value.
