Suddenly It's Summer!

Well, how long is it since I posted on this blog? I'm embarrassed!!! But, yes, I have been working at my campaign. I've lost a stone in weight since I started. I went on a fast from meat in Lent which really helped I'm sure. I began to walk almost every day for up to an hour and 2 hours some days. Most recently, well 7 whole weeks ago I started to run again. Yes!

My weight has plateuxed (is that spelling right?!) but that's because I'm not walking now, having moved into running but I can only run 3 times a week as it takes more out of me and I need the rests in between. I'm using an app on my iPhone - c25k. It takes you from nothing to running 5k in 9 weeks. I started week 8 today which entails 5 mins. walk as warm up, jog 28 minutes and walk 5 mins. as a cool down. It's been really helpful. And from yesterday I started to log my runs in Daily Mile. You'll see my latest entry on the right here.

Anyway, I'm doing well. I've still got about 12 weeks left I think. Once I get the 5K under my belt then I can begin to do more. It will be a good base to work from. The important thing is to keep well and watch what I'm eating.
