Well today is my 3 rd effort running.
Last night I went for my weigh in and was thrilled to have lost the 4lbs I'd gained over the previous week's holiday.
I'm putting it down to the increase in activity.
I've decided to do things slowly and follow the programme for getting started. My reason for running (at the moment) is just to increase my fitness. I'm not aiming for any major race. So hopefully all this fat replaced with heavier muscle wont apply just yet!
I'm quite aware how addictive exercise can be (after a while) so I'm sure my goals will change as my fitness increases.
Once again, many thanks for your encouragement and enthusiasm.
