Autumn Draws On - and 49 days to go

Yes, and it will soon be Winter draw(er)s on as well! I can tell the nights are getting longer. During June and July I can be up at 5.00 a.m. as it gets light at 4.30. This week it's been after 6.00 a.m. when I've been dragging myself out of bed simply because it's only coming light at 5.00. My body clock in that respect rules me. And I'm sorry but I have to abide by it. It means that during the Winter what I do now at 6.00 a.m. I do at 7.00 or even 8.00 in the Winter. I'm NOT looking forward to it.

However, good news this morning, at my weigh-in I'd lost another 2lbs. That's 2lbs less to haul around with me on my runs. It means too that I should, if I can keep the pace, hit my target of 11st. 7lb (or lighter) by the deadline of 7 weeks today. Wish me luck!!!

I had a good extended run this morning. I set my c25k app for a 30 minute run but in fact ran 45 minutes, just to see if I could. And I did. Yes! Also, I included 2 hills, a shorter one on my way out and the long one on my way back. The long hill is 700 yards long. Not sure on the incline but it's enough to get me working quite hard. When I've run it, I know about it. There are one or two of different gradient in the same area which I must try in coming weeks. I'll need to, because as you lose weight and get lighter you have to work harder to burn the calories. Oh joy!
