Although this blog consists of a lot of inane warbling there hasn’t been any for a few days. Sorry if anyone missed it, the odd insomniac maybe. Anyway last time I posted I was doing the fast diet thing. To summarise the second week was better than the first in terms of not being tired but I did less running. Then I embarked on over a whole week of birthday celebrations. After about 3 days of cake I went for an 8 mile run.
I learned some useful things.
Food is fuel. Yes I know that you know and I know its obvious, but after trying to run with and without it I found that muscles work better with it.
The first 3 miles are the hardest after about 5 I felt ‘steady’ but mile 8 was starting to be uncomfortable. There is a chance that I will be able to jog the whole 13 miles.
The fast diet works for weight loss. I did lose 2lb in 2weeks so it is something I might try after the ‘half’
after the 8 miler I didn’t run for a week. Too busy with work and yet more birthday celebrations. However I think the break did me good as yesterday I went for a really nice early evening 5 miles.
The fact that I can describe a 5 mile run as pleasurable or achievable would stun the ‘me’ from last year! Here’s hoping that next years me can do something equally stunning to the current me!
