I arrived home around 4:30am on Thursday morning, woke up at 6am because that's when my body said it was time to wake up (it's not a water works problem, just my internal clock), try as I might I couldn't get up. Yesterday was another wash out as I'd not caught up on my sleep.
This morning was the polar opposite, my body must have known what the head was thinking and at 5:30am the internal alarm went off and I woke up.
I took a little longer heading for the treadmill this morning with not running for 2.5 weeks.
I also weighed myself, more which later.
To ease myself back in I selected week 5 run 3 and off I went. I initially started at my slow run pace and then increased slightly around half way through building up to 25% above slow pace by the end of the 20 minutes.
I had set myself a goal of getting either to or below 22 stone before my holiday but I missed it by 5-6lbs, to my surprise, I'm now below the 22 stone goal even though I've been on holiday (plenty of sun, sand, swimming and scuba) so that may account for the extra weight loss (but I did eat quite a lot of the sweat stuff at dinner!).
Happy to be back running and that I haven't damaged my weight loss progress too much if at all.
I should be back up to 30 minutes by next Friday as I'm not rushing.
Happy running every one.
