About Me

I am a 33 year old mum of two who has spent her entire teenage and adult life struggling with her weight. I am not going to struggle with it anymore. I am in charge!

Best laid plans

So a quick look at my exercise plan for today will show that my intention was to cycle to the pool and back for Bookworm's swimming lesson and also to do C25K. It didn't quite work out that way. Before I lead you into thinking that I decided I couldn't be bothered that isn't the case. My bicycle was trapped. At the weekend it got put away behind my husbands two good bikes (there is another one that is an old faithful). If it was just the one needing moving I would have braved it. But two, I'm not going there.

Plan B then. I got my running things on and decided to combine the trip to and from the pool with a walk run. I wasn't sure about this because my legs were aching still after BFBM and running yesterday but it was either that or the car and I am not going down that route.

State of legs - aching and tired but capable of a lot more than I thought.
Total walking time - 44 minutes.
Total running time - 12 minutes.
Longest block of running - 4 minutes.

I was really pleased with the 4 minutes. I didn't take my ipod because frankly with an easily distracted Bookworm and a speedy Hyperboy that would be a recipe for disaster. So I made it a 'run for as long as is comfortable' session.  I was also really pleased with my ability to breathe more easily. I struggle to stop myself sounding like I am about to hyperventilate but I guess my body is getting used to the speed.

Food wise I have been fine again today. I need food now though.

Back on track day 2. Going well.
