Belly Talk

June 30th, 2010 Comments off

Back in April, I mentioned that I wanted to lose some weight. At the time, I was 16 stone, 12.5 pounds. That’s  236.5lbs, or about 107 kilos. I procrastinated for a bit, I had a couple of false starts, but then I got on, and stuck to, a restriction in my calories for a good […]

Pants in the Park

June 27th, 2010 Comments off

Ah, yes, the hottest day of the year. Just the time to get out into the sunshine at nearly noon and run 5 kilometres wearing y‑fronts. Oh yes. Although I do have a sneaking suspicion that the three laps of the bloody great field we ran around wasn’t quite 5K, but I don’t suppose it […]

Back Out There

June 23rd, 2010 1 comment

I’m still not feeling 100%. This morning, though, I was struck by a blinding flash of the obvious: if I’m not feeling 100%, I don’t have to run 100%! So, figuring that building back up momentum is more important than sticking to my usual 5K minimum, I went out for a nice little 3K jog […]

Poorly Sick

June 21st, 2010 Comments off

You may have noticed that I’ve not posted in more than a week, which is a bit unusual for me. Nothing to worry about, but I’ve been laid low with some coldy/fluey thing that’s been going around at work. I seem to be recovering now. Hopefully I’ll be back out and running soon, probably on […]

8K and No Pink Tutu

June 13th, 2010 Comments off

Got out early this morning — well, before 9am, anyway, which I thought was pretty good for a Sunday — and trogged up and around the Downs for 8K. Getting out early was a good idea for two reasons. The main reason was to avoid the midday sun that nearly fried me the last time […]

Busy busy busy

I’m crazy busy this week, so this is going to be a quick post in between me coming home from my run and stretching 🙂 I just got out for 5K, for the first time since last week, and it was okay. I wasn’t really feeling like running — I think I might be coming […]

Sometimes, Life Gets In the Way

June 8th, 2010 Comments off

In a fairly rare move for me, I didn’t get out for a run this weekend. Or this evening. I’m trying to give myself a break about this. This weekend I was out of town visiting friends, and I’m still playing catchup on the thousand things I should have done at the weekend if I’d […]

Due to a Flickr meet last night, and getting up late this morning, I only just have time for this update: I did 5K last night.
