Weigh-in Wednesdays can be a bit traumatic but I had a good feeling about this morning.
I was up early as it was also my first day back at work after being on holidays for nearly two weeks. I weighed myself before going out on my run and finally cracked my nemesis weight – only just mind you – but I was finally under it. I was very happy with myself and so went out on my run with a great feeling of achievement. It was a beautiful crisp morning and I was on fire!
I was determined to do the 16 minutes of non stop running as suggested in today’s fitness plan – I actually did 17 minutes 31 seconds up and down hills before hitting a really big uphill section and slowing to a fast walk instead. It was interesting to note that my heart rate walking up the hills is almost as high as it is when running on the flat!
I was thrilled with myself and kept remembering that when I started nine weeks ago I could only manage two and a half minutes of running non stop!
I credit my day’s efforts to a few things – I learnt how to tie my shoelaces properly by watching a video and it made all the difference to my once numb toes; I did Tighten up Tuesday yesterday ensuring that I ate very cleanly by tightening up on what went into my mouth and my determined efforts to increased my intensity. It is all coming together nicely!
This really is a great program!
