I’ve completed the third week of the 12 week Slip in to Summer challenge with DW Fitness, so I’m now 1/4 of a way through.
I’ve really enjoyed my running this week. I’ve been out for a run three times, and each time I’ve slightly bettered the previous. I’m still not running very far, I’m only really doing about a mile. In my first week of the challenge I tried to run a mile and it took me 16 minutes. The most recent run I did I managed a mile in about 10 minutes, which is a vast improvement. In the coming week I’m going to work on trying to run further than a mile. I would like to push myself to 3 mile so I can sign up and do a 5k race at some point over the coming months.
I have been trying to vary my routes when I go out for a run. I think it helps that I live in such a beautiful area, although sometimes it’s easy to ignore your surroundings when you are gasping for breath and feel like you are ready to pass out…
I snapped this photo while I stopped for breath this week and it made me appreciate my surroundings a bit, I don’t think I would enjoy running nearly as much if I had to just run through housing estates.I finally made it to the gym this week, but I didn’t get any photos or video footage because I was dying too much to even think about it. I put in a good session, and I was really feeling it the next day!Towards the end of the week, things changed a bit. I started to crave comfort food and I started feeling really bloated and sluggish and just not in the mood for exercise at all. In fairness, it’s my time of the month and I always feel a bit rubbish at that time, but it’s knocked my progress of a bit which is disappointing.I was aiming for a pound a week loss, which would be an overall loss of 12lb at the end of the challege which would be great, as 10lb is generally a dress size, and I’m aiming to drop one dress size so I can fit in to my Weird Fish dress.
This weeks weight in results:
Weight – 10st 9.6
Loss this week – 10oz (I think?)
Total Loss – 3lb
I suppose I’m 3 weeks in and I have lost 3lb so I am on target, but this weeks results were a little disappointing.
I vlogged a little this week, but it’s only a short one…
Next Monday it’s time for the first big weigh in and I will be taking my first set of measurements to see how many inches I’ve lost, so pop back next week if you are interested to see how I’m progressing.
