....I managed a 1 mile swim today and yesturday at the Lido ( sorry to say my first love but the running is growing on me!) as given myself the 2 day break from running, and I would have struggled with that before. Its amazing how all this running increases the fitness levels to achieve more.
It feels like the first time in my life I have some control and feel empowered ( I wish I had done this when I was 40 but that was when I had my mid life crisis!!!).
The other benefit is that I am finally dieting, reallly due to not wanting to run the risk of damage to limbs from excess baggage for running! I have this amazing app called 'myfitnesspal' that works out your daily calories. Then if you exercise it gives you some back! I feel a fraud but I so hope it works.
So this next couple of weeks is going to be tough, 2 more W8 runs then the big week 9....I am so scared I won't make it but also so determind as there is no going back having got this far.
Thankyou everyone for all your amazing blogs they really keep me going and are inspirational!
