Week 9 run 1

Week 9 run 1

Whew! This run wiped me out just a bit. I fully blame the fact that I started off too fast at the gate. That said, I ran all 30 minutes and reached 3.5k. With the 10 minutes of walking I did 4.57k total. I will take that. Another gorgeous fall day and two more runs to go! By the way, I started having issues with my running gear. My running tights kept trying to slip down. On a whim, I decided to try on a size small (I usually wear medium) and it fit!!!! Even though I haven't especially been watching my diet, I must be losing fat. Hooray!!!!!

P.S. Come on HealthUnlocked! quit flipping my photos!!!!

I also eventually had problems with clothes that fell off. I think as you start adding those extra minutes you lose fat at quite a rate. Nice feeling, isn't it? I have a pair of jeans I put under all the other stuff years ago, and I tried them on at some point, and they fit. What a surprise.

That's awesome! I'm hoping it keeps happening for me. I'm also going to cut back on the processed food. That stuff is evil. I have pumpkin soup on the stove at the moment. Yum!

Yesss! And another one bites the dust...( Freddy Mercury rocks in Mfam's kitchen)... :D

I know what you mean about weight loss - I am having running gear issues too, but It's better to go down a size than up, huh :D I have a feeling that my long leggings are going to be having problems with gravity too when I pull them out of the wardrobe.

I advocate braces ; )

Sexy, stylish, available in many colours/patterns from a tool shop near you!

Alternatively, they will be useful for layering in the cold weather and you can emerge from them like a butterfly from a cocoon, come the spring...

I now have an earworm - the music from "Hey, Big (su)Spender, playing unstoppably in my head.

The boobs could go straight up and down if we put a bit of superglue on our nipples...maybe not! I am also seeing Thoroughly Modern Milly frowning and wondering "Why do all the rich girls beads hang straight?"

Superglue. Hmm. Maybe we could just glue them under our chins instead. Inexpensive boob lift strategy.

Saw this conversation at work and had to stifle the laughter that ensued. Hilarious, but sounds VERY uncomfortable.

Well done well done! It's hard to think you're running for half an hour isn't it! Not so long since running for a minute seemed a bit much :)

Congrats on the toning up as well. I am beginning to think I'm a bit more toned, I definitely agree it's only with the longer runs that the body changes really kick in and become noticeable.

Not long to go till graduation!- keep it up :)
