Can't believe that I have run for 20 minutes, that's 1.8 miles!
Also I am ahead on my weight loss goal, under 15 stone, that's nearly 3 stone lost in just over 3 months, another 3 to go and I will be like a whippet. Burning ~500 calories on the run and the walk home really helps keep my net calories in check - today's breakfast was all but offset by the run, leaving me 1346 calories for the rest of the day.
I must recommend myfitnesspal.com/ and its Android app for tracking all this stuff, it's free and easy to use. I also bought endomondo pro for Android to track times and distances and so far I am really pleased with it although I don't use its calorie counts as they are higher than myfitnesspal's and I'd rather err on underestimating calories expended and over estimating calories ingested, and really that is all there is to losing weight.
Any how I'm really pumped and looking forward to doing week 6 and then doing week 7 & 8 whilst on holiday. We're going to Pembrokeshire and I can't wait to run along the coastal path with the sea air in my lungs and looking out over the waves.
Hurray for the NHS this program is brilliant
