Running and weight loss update

I’ve not written a blog since the 4th of July but, for once, this isn’t because I’ve been off plan but because I’ve been pretty busy and for the past two weeks I’ve been on my hols. Running I am still sticking to my half marathon training plan and am now up to 7 miles,…

My running week – 25th June to 1st July

Blimey I find it hard to motivate myself to run when it is so hot outside, but I find that having a training programme that I need to follow does help me to get the runs done. Last week we needed to do 2 miles, 2 miles and 4 miles and it all started well…

My running week – 18th to 24th June

Well it’s been a while since I’ve had a full week’s running to report on, but last week I achieved it … yippee. It is 11 weeks until my first half marathon and so last week I needed to start following my 12 week training plan.  The plan required me to run 3 times (2…

My running – May & June 2018

My running blogs have dwindled over the past few weeks because my running has also dwindled somewhat.  In fact, in May I only ran 3 times and in June (so far) I’ve only run twice (although both times were this week so I’m on a very small ‘roll’ at the moment!). However ….. it is…

Fourth weigh-in – Slimming World

After a flying start, this Slimming World malarkey is getting a little harder.  I weighed in at club this morning and again I had only lost half a pound.  Whilst this brings my total weight loss in 4 weeks to 8lbs (a result I can only be happy about), this is less impressive if I…

My first group weigh-in

After I finally joined a slimming club… a week or so ago I had my first weigh in on Friday and I am pleased to say that I lost 5.5lbs – yes 5.5lbs!  This is the most weight I’ve lost in just one week in many a year and I am naturally very chuffed. So what…

My running week – 23rd April to 29th April

This week I achieved that rarest of things for me – three runs in one week! Now that I have reduced my mileage to just three miles I am finding things much more manageable, my legs don’t ache after the runs and I don’t have the running munchies afterwards.  I have also started running with…

My running week – 26th March to 1st April

The best laid schemes of mice and men ….. I signed off my last running blog with hopes of running 3 times last week, needless to say this didn’t happen.  The weather, the Easter Bank Holiday and my own laziness conspired against me and I only actually managed 1 of my planned runs.  Oops.  However,…
