Day 22 – Back in the Game

Day #22
Ran Today, YUSS!!  I feel so much better now, I was starting to feel a little emo there for a second, withdrawels and all.  And I ran my longer route today and still felt like i could push for more, I think maybe I am ready to extend to 6k a day, with a goal to get to 8km – 5Miles (8.05km).  Would be a luxury to get this 8k W/C (without children)  I just don’t think it is possible to do it in a short time frame having to push an extra 20-25kg.  I may just have to do one day a week where I go out on my own to run without the children, and have hubby look after them while he is on his off-hitch.  I really wanna get to this 5mile thing, coz 5k just isn’t the business.  Plus I have to eventually increase my fitness some how, and doing the same amount everyday is not a winning way!  It will be good once the children go to kindy, I can slip in a run on my own more often.  Anywho, not a bad effort for my first day back at it after a weekend off sick, that entire weekend plus monday without a workout cost me a few extra hundred grams of weightloss, I def’s can’t do this thing without putting in a decent effort on the pavements.
Weigh-in I guess couldv’e been worse, we are now at 77.2kg, which is only 200grams loss, fucking pizza!!!
Oh and the fact that I chugged atleast 1.5L of water this morning before weigh-in because I am scared of becoming dehydrated due to still having the shits, another thing contributing to those few extra hundy still laden on my body!!!
Just so you know, we will be upp’ing this mutha!  Its time to go double time on this cardio and get in some more decent weightloss!  I worked out that 5 miles a day with 1 rest day a week during the month of feb…were looking at 193.2k, urgh making me sweat just thinking about it…lets just bust a healthy 150k for starters. – 6.25k a day with 1 rest day, I’ll take it!

78.4km for January

Todays Run puts me at 78.4km out of 100km,  Just shy of 80% complete


Make small achievable goals!  And make PR’s(Personal Records)/PB’s(Personal Bests).  Have a visable record of both of these!  These things are most of the reason why I have been pushing myself to do more and more.  Its not about being the best, not about being better than someone else, just about reaching my own potential and getting some self-fulfilment.

Outlook for tomorrow:
Run again!!  I might try get in an extra half k by taking another longer route home, seeing how I go for time and how I feel, I don’t like to run in the hot hot sun with the children, as there are a lot of hills and I prefer not to die running!  Am really keen to try it though!  We will see tomorrow, kinda amped just thinking about it, almost got a crush on it already! EXCITE!

  1. My husband used to be a marathon runner (got sick and lost the love, sadly) and there’s a meet held here in Sydney every month of 5km, 10km and 21km runs. Is there anything like that perhaps where you are? That way it’s a set time, safe path, you can run with people, and the tikes and hubby can be cheering you on from the finish!

    1. Im sure I could find something, it’s just a case of having the hubby home to have the children, He works out of the country, so trying to get some solo running time is not easy, but I am determined to find a way! I have planned a 5k with a friend in June and we plan to book in a 10k straight after, in our town they’re quarterly I think, but in Wellington and Auckland they are almost weekly 🙂
