A place to declare your weekly results
went away for the weekend have to say eat too much so I’m back to tracking everything again this week
Just 6 miles for me yesterday followed by some exercises using the kettle bell weights rest day today although i may do the exercises again
Hehe I have got you hooked Toby they are great.
OK. So with my ITBand and quad issue no running for last 3 weeks, and I basically pigged out from my Xmas parties quite early in December at work until I went to bed last night.
I went from 9st 10 lbs to getting up this morning and i'm now 10st 5.2 lbs so January is going to e getting back into the 9st x category and i'd like to get to 9st 9lbs and stick with that or lower 135 lbs / 61.4 kg.
But it does seem naturally i'm more 9st 12/13 as I hover a lot around there, but we shall see
Back to running this weekend
It's amazing how quickly your body gets used to a slobby diet, I can already hear my belly going feed me chocolates!! I've told it hard luck!!
i haven't been to a weigh in yet as my meeting was closed over Christmas but i have a feeling i will be doing the same as I've gone from 9st12lbs on our scales to any thing between 10st 6lbs to 10st 10lbs
I think the weight increase is just it being Xmas (eating / drinking too much), things will sort themselves out over the next couple of weeks.
our scales have broken, could you recommend any to buy, thanks
Omron digital scales seem good and cheap on Amazon. the 511 or 508 ( i have 510 i guess replaced by the 511) http://www.amazon.co.uk/Omron-BF508-Composition-Monitor-Bathroom/dp/B0033AGBVG/ref=sr_1_fkmr0_2?s=drugstore&ie=UTF8&qid=1388759452&sr=1-2-fkmr0&keywords=omron+scalesbf510
Seem very consistent and reliable. I'm a fan.
well should have done 16 miles on Friday but came down with the flu that’s going around and just felt like crap so gave it a miss will see how i feel when i get up from work tomorrow before deciding whether to run or may just give it a rest next week
i have noticed though i don’t seem to have the enthusiasm this year for the training and am finding it a real struggle to get out the door
weight wise went to my weigh in on Saturday a must admit i wasn’t going to go as i was afraid that I’d put on a hell of a lot but the wife called me out and said i was just being a chicken so went anyway
I’ve put on 6.5lbs over Christmas which puts me at 10st 8.5lbs and although that looks a lot it’s not as bad as it seems if you take the 5lbs i lost deliberately before Christmas it’s only puts me a 1.5lb over my target weigh of 10st 7lbs and I’m still 4.5lbs under my weight watchers target
booktrunk that for the recommendation, managed a 18.5 miler on saturday morning in the cold, and rain, good moral booster for the training now this year, just need to lose some weight.
Impressive run C&I Dad or (spen) .... complicated name
I had a sneak peek today. I only go on my actual weight on x day each week, but wanted to check how i was doing and back down to 64.9 so lost 1.2 Kg just by behaving myself since last Thursday.
Also first runs back after 3 weeks out with injury 4m Thursday, and 12m yesterday. Legs really felt it yesterday afternoon, but feel fine this morning
well done on the runs
5 miles for me today have decided to stick to the treadmill just until this cold has cleared up then it will be back outside although having said that i do have 14 miles to do on Friday so may do that run outside as 14 miles on the treadmill is a bit too much even for me
Work’s not helping at the moment as i have to be in by 2.30pm everyday for the next two weeks so it’s a bit tight for time as by the time i get up do the run have a bath i will be having to be out the door so i may limit the runs during the week to just 5 miles as anything longer may put me late for work
Good first week of dieting to get off the 10lbs i gained over Xmas.
4 lbs down.64.2Kg in total 10st 1.2lbs
I still eat quite a lot including pudding on a few nights, just trying to eat sensible food, and not to much of it really does make a difference. It's not eating the junk calories that makes such a difference.
Running I did 4m Thursday, 12M Sunday, and 8M Yesterday. So 24m for the week in 3 runs.
Booktrunk well done on the weight loss great result this has been my first full week of tacking but my weigh day’s not till Saturday so will have to see if I’ve lost anything i put on
running’s been a bit of a struggle as the cold shows no sign of letting up i have managed another 5 and an 8mile’s but as i said theses have been done on treadmill as a run walk i have a 14 mile run to do today i may Venter out or just start on the treadmill and stop when i get board
Went to my weigh in yesterday 0.5lb off a little disappointed as i thought i may have lost a little more but a loss is a loss
running wise did 16 miles on the treadmill Friday then went out Saturday with the O/H on her LSR and did 13.5
it’s been a while since i posted weight wise after losing 0.5lb i stayed the same the following week and lost another 0.5lbs last week winch now puts me 0.5 over my target weight of 10st 7lbs
running’s been tricky to as works been busy for instance I’ve had to juggle the running around this week a bit as i was due to work on Friday and Saturday which are normally day’s off and my day to do my LSR so instead try to fit it in on Thursday but time beat me and i only had time to do 10 miles before i need to be heading home the annoying was got a phone call for work on Friday as i was about to leave for work to say i wasn’t needed after all
did work a few hours on Saturday morning which meant by the time i got home we were late setting off for the wife’s 15 miles and by this time we’d miss the beast of the weather at one point the wind was so strong we were running backwards when running into it and been blown along when running with it
Had one terrific down pour that we took shelter from but fortunately as the wind was so strong it blew over quite quickly after that the weather was ok and we had no more rain one thing about setting of that late we did end up running in the dark which is a whole new experience for me as nearly all my running is done in the light
I'm down 9lbs since 2nd jan woop woop!
jennGa well done you
