I thought I would kill 2 birds with one stone today!
First, I want to invite you to run a Virtual 5k with me and my group Friday 29th November! On the 29th – Anytime, Anywhere, Anyhow! Or just do whatever distance you can manage.
My group Graduates the C25k programme in just 2 short weeks and I am on a mission to round up as much support as possible for their Graduation Run!
I must say, that even for me, someone who used to run longer distances than a 5k, it has been extremely beneficial!
I have found myself feeling very unaffected by the full 5k run’s I have done on my own away from the group, and I think the c25k has helped with that. By unaffected I mean able to run at my fastest pace non-stop for longer, and to not feel like crap immediately afterwards.
So my something new for today – Today rather than following the programme, I did a 5k in just under 35mins, almost creating a PR for myself. Because we had an odd number of ladies at the Run group today I was able to run alone – so I mapped out our 5k Route for Graduation. I ran non-stop, I did have to stop once about a K shy of getting home to help a lady up the stairs, she fell (paused my app, took her up the stairs, went back down the stairs, unpaused app, continued running up the stairs hahaha)
The run was great, I feel like I could have done better, I didn’t quite hit that exhaustion mark, so I had more to give…YUSS!
Smells like my fitness is improving even on the downtime I was having not so long ago.
So anywho – please run along with us, I even have a Bib for you to print out and wear 🙂
Weigh-in day today!
A loss of 1 whole kg!! Bringing me down to 75.2kg!
That is a total loss of 17.3kg since I started using MFP a year and a bit ago!
I have noticed my Tech wear getting a little baggy, stuff that is supposed to be tight and create compression, is kinda not doing its job for me right now!
Anywho, roughly 2 more kilo’s to go and I will be happy with this years progress. After getting stuck in a funk since the end of January, I have not done too badly to redeem myself!
Another date with Jillian for Ab day, feeling stronger already!
Ok, so how did you Pimp the Beast today?
Any PR’s that you have to Brag about lately?
