My first run in 6½ weeks! Away in Sandton, Johannesburg, South Africa on business so after a 12 hour day with a Client, I decided to hit the treadmill in the Park Inn by Radisson
We were supposed to be running a half marathon today in Milton Keynes but simply weren’t prepared, so instead we did a cheeky 25km cycle ride.
9 months since my last cycle ride. 9 months. Oh yes.
Phew! That was hard work: back into the running after a few weeks off.
Weight has increased by ½lb since Wednesday, but then I’d just eaten dinner and been out for two other Dinners since then.
That was hard work tonight.
Weighed myself this morning and I’ve gained 5lb since Christmas, despite starting to eat more vegetarian food (cheeky Nando’s on Friday notwithstanding…).
I now need to knuckle down for the Milton Keynes Half Marathon at the start of May: only 5 weeks away!
My first run since 2017: 10½ weeks or 2½ months plus I know I’ve put on shedloads of weight since the start of the year.
I got a bit lost trying to navigate the junctions and subways near the hotel and it was getting dark, cold and drizzling, so I cut it shorter than planned.
Five and a half weeks since my last run (in Toronto) and with those extra Christmas pounds to shift in the run-up (ho-ho!) to my wedding. More of a tun-walk-run than a proper run, but with my knee in a brace it was better safe than sorry.
-1.1°C and -6°C with windchill with a sprinkling of snow, mixed in with manflu. Still nice to get out before a long day ahead.
Just a quickie tonight as we have family coming over. Weight is exactly the same as earlier this week.
