Good morning all,
Anyway, this week I am posting a loss of 1 lb for the first time in ages. I increased my intake when I started running further and I've struggled to lose anything since. However, last week I went back to the way I was eating before and as a result I've lost weight this week. I think a little knowledge can be quite dangerous because I was convinced that I needed to increase my calories when running further but obviously went too far.
I ran a 10k on Saturday, not a PB but enjoyable nevertheless. However, I had a disastrous long run yesterday; went out feeling great, intending to do 100 mins. After 3 miles my left knee started playing up (old riding injury), by 4 miles I was limping and then I met the runner I always dread - a sprightly 20 something who runs with a local club. He offered encouragement by telling me that I'll never get around my 1/2M running so slowly. I smiled sweetly and hoped that he wouldn't spot the dog poo I'd just seen in the longer grass! At 5 miles I gave up and walked home feeling like the worst runner in the world. Thankfully hubby was on hand to mop up the tears and offer encouragement in the form of chocolate. I've now decided to rest my knee for a couple of days and miss out my long run this week - I think I must have overdone my training in the last couple of weeks (silly old woman!).
Good luck to everyone weighing-in to day.
Total lost to date - 43lbs
