I’ve just finished Week 5 run 3 and feeling jolly pleased with myself. Given I was struggling to even run 60 seconds a few weeks ago, I’ve made massive progress.
Although there were moments during the 20 minute run that felt difficult I never doubted I could do it, so my confidence is increasing as well.
What’s bothering me at the moment is that I haven’t seen my massive progress and effort reflected when I stand on the scales. I have never in my life done as much exercise as this and I guess I thought that by now I would have lost some weight. I’m pretty much the same weight as when I started.
It’s getting me down, but thankfully not to the extent that it’s putting me off running. I’m going things will change soon, after all, I took up running to try and lose some weight.
