Here's what i'm doing now :)

Well I haven't posted in a while so thought i'd check in with you all.

Currently training for inclines which is my main target . All gym work . Nothing outdoors in a while but thats my target eventually to combat the consistent hills in Southampton . I've been running fat burn courses on the treadmill . runs of 2 and 3.5% inclines over the course of 20 mins and then onto 30 mins of 2% inclines once ive done another week of this. This is so much harder than the C25K week 9 stuff I did with zero inclines. Time to get serious , my legs are like pistons now and my weight has been dropping since I started . To top it off Im alternating 15 min rows and 30 mins cycles each session after a run. The cycles usually cover 15k and I always feel much more worn out after which is great!!

Keep it varied folks!!!

c25K gave me my stamina , now im turning it up!

See you soon.

  • That's fantastic, you are doing brilliantly. Good luck with those hills 😎

  • You are doing so well! Slow and steady, as ever !

  • im not planning on dropping dead just yet :) This is a lifestyle change after all :)

  • You are doing wonderfully!!! You followed the programme just like you should :) Slow and steady gets us where we want to be,...I did a repeat 10K yesterday... and loved it :)

  • well done you !! Im way off but every day as it comes. Now you know its not a fluke! :)

  • I run hills a lot but tend to tackle them slowly with small steps. It's not all about power and pushing too much

    Don't overdo things! If you get hurt then you will find out what it's like on the injury couch. Steady! Rome wasn't built in a day 🙂

    take care 🙂

  • Absolutely. I find it better if I have some structure to my workouts. Since finishing C25k I admit to slacking so I gave myself the time and a new goal and thats what I'm doing now. Couple weeks of fat burn, then couple weeks of 30 mins on a slight incline, then an outdoor run on a slightly hilly circuit I know. All while building strength with other forms of cardio and weight plans. The theory is if I can slog through the higher inclines in the gym it'll feel easier outdoor. My legs are so much stronger now but I need the overall fitness improved. And now I've stopped drinking and eating takeaways I'm seeing results. :D a food treat should be just that. A treat. Not part of a general diet. All about training the mind as well as the body right.

  • You won't miss the takeaways! Or the ale or whatever so you'll soon begin to feel better 😃
