More weird weather, a carpet of thick white snow and pelted by hail! What's going on? I ran (it's mostly walk though right?) with my coat, scarf and woolly hat on. A duffle coat, no clever technical sports wear here. Felt odd. To any passers by it must have looked odd, like I was on the run. An escapee mad man loose, legging it, panting, arms flailing, police called. Part of the whole wearing the 'PE kit' thing is, I'm sure, just a visual flag to others to say don't be alarmed - look see, Lycra! - I'm doing 'jogging'. I'd gladly run in jeans, t-shirt and cardigan if I didn't feel like I'd be tackled to the floor by an over enthusiastic PCSO.
As its Friday I thought I'd do a weekly weigh in. So everything off then, yes even the socks. And glasses. Freshly toileted (uh), shaved, breathing out and if I hold my arms and position my feet... just... right, squint, shuffle a bit and stick my tongue out: I'm down 0.8kg or was that 0.3 as cannot see. Whatever, I'm calling it a success, to the spreadsheet!
In the metric spirit of C25K I'm sticking with kg. It means, of course, that I have no idea what 0.8 means. But that's okay, I don't want to know. Good to be detached from all that... weight stuff... a little. Ideally I'd use grains and apothecaries' scruples but my scales don't seem to have that. Just as long as the direction of change is noted. No, I don't want to get obsessed with the numbers too much and start counting calories, alcohol units and generally dieting. After saying all that: down 0.8. Oooh goody, am thin as rake. (v.v.g. excellent /bridget)
Pleased that I'm braving this weather, would be so easy to put it off. Real legitimate excuse of hail and snow but I promised myself there are no excuses. Well, we'll see how long that lasts I doubt I could do week 5 in full winter garb.
That's week 1 done then. Reading my old posts on here from yonks ago I seemed to be making a hearty meal of week 1. This has gone surprisingly well. No sore legs or shins. Dare I say it's been kind of easy??
