So, here I am about 6 weeks post graduation, having done my super-slower 5km at the end of May and super fast (for me) 2km the other day.
Fell off a step ladder on Friday, landed on my back on concrete and hurt my hand and wrist - nothing broken, and could have been A LOT worse... noted that "thank goodness my legs are OK" was my first reaction!
As Friday was my 'rest day', I insisted on running on Saturday (much to my husband's suprise)... but didn't want to do a 'long' one... SO I tried to up my pace and do 2km... which I did with great success...in just over 15 mins.
BUT to get to my point; - set off for my 'fast/short' run and immediately felt my 'bruise' on my back due to excess fat wobbling above my buttocks (not a pretty image)... incidentally found that the extra blood flow to my hurt arm really helped it's recovery!
I know I'm not losing any weight inspite of my efforts in running regularly, so I did a search and found this:
It makes a lot of sense, most of which I know already, and I'm well aware that I need to log everything that goes into my mouth... BUT I just don't want to obsess about food too much. (And I'm not ready to run 60 minutes per day 6 times a week!)
But simple steps like having nuts to snack on rather than chocolate; avoiding nice pastries as a 'treat' post run and drinking lots of water (yuck)... would be a good place to start!
Need to lose 20kg... but first I have start with the first ONE!
