My Monday report - lost 1lb this week - so total of 6lbs over last 2 weeks. Not too disapointed with this as it was TOTM for me.
Last week managed to run twice - I go to a run 4 fun club and Monday is a drill training session - last week we did a track session and did a 8.54 mile which is my best and then Wednesdays is our long run. For me a long run is about 3 miles but am aiming for longer runs than this.
Tuesday did 900m swim but then couldn't face any more exercise.
Have spent the weekend decorating so have been relatively active.
I am currently eating 1250 cals a day which is sufficient for me to eat healthily and lose weight. Having lost weight a few years ago I worked out that to maintain my weight I need to eat about 1940 cals a day but I wasn't doing as much exercise as I am now.
Cath - it is definitely much better to lose weight slowly and therefore change your eating habits and keep the weight off.
I started running 3 years ago by training for Basingstoke Race for Life in a bid to lose weight and raise money for such a good cause.
Unfortunately in the last 6 months I have put on a stone but that didn't stop me getting a pb in the Southampton Race for Life of 29.03 - very pleased with that.
I have now lost 5lbs in the last 2 weeks (so I started off at 11.4) and would like to lose at least a stone by the time I go on holiday in 8 weeks time.
My running goal is to attempt a 10k and get round but it seems as though they are all concentrated in Sept/Oct which is when my hols are so not enough time to train before and then holiday will interrupt training.
I run twice a week at the moment with a club and think I need to do more but my legs don't seem to like it.
I think it is a good idea for everyone to come here on Mondays to say what they have done.
