I began my C25K journey in March, weighing 304lbs (21st9), with a blood pressure reading of a rather high 133 over 98.
Today i had my blood pressure measured, using the same instrument in the same office... My blood pressure today was 119 over 79 with a resting heart rate of 66, and my weight is 228lbs (16st4). That reading is essentially perfect. The ideal BP reading is 120 over 80.
Following my check up, I went to the gym and ran the Speed C25K+ podcast again. This time i ran the higher bpm run at 10kph and the lower one at 8.5kph. For a couple of the intervals (the first and the last) i ran at 11kph instead of 10kph.
I look better, i feel better, I am better.
