When The Sun Comes Up, You’d Better Be Running

When The Sun Comes Up, You’d Better Be Running

Ouch, Ouch Ouch!!

If you read my post yesterday, you will know why I am hurting so much!!

This running malarkey can be a dangerous sport, thinking of going out running with padded cycle shorts on and knee pads!?!

After 2 day of running well and falling even better, I had a nice easy morning at the gym today. 1 miles swim a sauna and spa day was much needed. I love swimming and have not been for a while. It sure makes you hungry. Breakfast before and after was called for.

According to My Fitness Pal my breakfast of 2 slices of wholemeal toast, Olive spread, honey, cappuccino porridge and golden syrup took up a whooping 636 of my 1200 daily calories allowance {to lose weight} today. It was a good job my mile swim wore around 416 of them off.

Since Christmas I have put a few pounds of weight on and now I am on a mission to lose a stone before summer. The weight is not really a problem, its my body fat. 25% is quite high for a runner so I will have to cut down on the buttery toast, cakes and biscuits. It is going to be hard work as I love my food {take my breakfast for instance!}. When I get a sweet tooth I am going to try my best to eat some fruit!!

And when I want to eat chocolate I have to:

This afternoon I ran with my 11 year old son. He is doing brilliant with his running. He has ran everyday this year and now seeing an improvement…

Just 2 miles for me today. My leg was dragging behind because of my fall yesterday!!

I am so pleased to be back on the Nike+ website from today!! It has been 4 years since I updated a run on their website as my nike watch broken and you could only use their watch to upload. From today I can upload my training from my TomTom and Garmin sports watch.

Can’t wait to run tomorrow as I had already uploaded today run..
