Weight loss and running

Recommended Posts

I am currently at 98kg, park run PB of 24:07.  That calculator spreadsheet says that at 91kg I could go sub 20.  Seems optimistic to me but worth a try.  Will report back in a couple of months!

G'day Willie, just checking on progress? Would be interested in some of your workouts for improving pace. I'm not looking at anything too fancy or complicated but just one or two best bang for buck/time speed workouts to get my times down for the 5k park run. I did 21:55 two weeks ago and will aim for next Saturday for another go (going every 2-3 weeks). Aiming for sub 20 by end of year. Have found the race pace function on my V800 so will use that to help with pacing.

I was going to run today, but I over tightened my dive knife to my calf yesterday and it’s sore today, so I went diving again, put the knife on other calf not as tight,

I miss running, and I miss being able to eat whatever I wanted because I was running....

Just do what I do and focus on the eating part.

Sometimes you can’t do what you want to do- especially if you are not 100%

Sometimes you can’t do what you want because you had unrealistic expections.

Totes - your head needs to be in the right place for months on end to lose weight. It happens in phases...

I lost 5 kg yesterday :)

(they took my cast off - Pseudo-jones fracture/borderline Jones fracture left foot.)

still not supposed to expect to run for another three months tho...

(does that mean I can just stroll the "run" leg at Noosa?)
