The one-per-day experiment has been great! I am now considering doing a two-per-day during the month of April, although it will be hard to accomplish on teaching-heavy days.

Once round green park , 1 mile - 30 mins? Really must remember to time.

In  other news I can now run for three quarters of a mile, easily and without stopping.  This is a very big achievement and I never would have believed it.  I must put the credit soley with my mate Liz (uber sport queen)  who showed me that jogging and sprinting are actually different.

I'VE GONE MAD [14 Apr 2008|07:27pm]

i_love_roman

welllllllllllllllllllllll  Somehow or other I appear to have agreed to train for next years London marathon.  WHAT? WHAT?  WHAT DID I JUST SAY??  I can't possibly do that!  I'd need to lose 6 stone!  Panic!  Arrgh!  Run away!  I can't run for more that 5 minutes!!!!!!!

Anyway in the sprit of "I can't possibly do that" I've just spent £32 on applying for a place and yesterday....

JOGGING from the end of the road and round the park - about 10 minutes??. Well stopping and starting really.  I'm quite proud!

On Wednesday My two pals and I are meeting up to jog round Green Park.  Pal C works in Buckingham Palace and we shall get to get changed in the staff quarters!  Cool!

Not sure where else to start  -  I'll sign up to my calorie counting website again (waving credit card as we speak - for an unemployed person I'm spend DA CASH rather freely) I also need DECENT BLOODY RUNNING SHOES.  The "free" ones are really not upto it!  AND I also need at least one very good sports bra!  (There's a good idea!  Get Bravissimo to sponsor me!)  

I want to build up fitness before running too far.  I need a new bicycle as well.  Sigh.  This Marathon running is expensive!

I probably ought to get checked out at the doctors too....  On Wednesday I'll draw up a proper training plan! Any input gratefully received!

I mustered up the energy to try on a pair of very skinny, tight black trousers over the weekend. I really want to wear them to The Hives gig at the end of November, but I had the fear they'd be too tight, as I've put weight on since buying them (and they are pretty unforgiving!).

Anyway... they fitted...! ?? I am incredulous, but pleased as punch obviously. I've not been keeping up with my exercising as much as I should have been, due to being pretty busy over the last few weeks - and laziness, I admit. But what I have been doing seems to have been enough, it's great. So with just a little more effort, I can hopefully garner more results? Here's hoping.

Now I just need a top for the gig ;)

The display is playing up on my step machine, which is great. So I don't know the calorie count, but I just did roughly 30mins on it and I feel much better.

I'd forgotten how exercise helps low moods!

35mins, 137 calories on the step machine.

I won't get to go on it again until Tuesday night! This saddens me. Will have to do something instead in the interim...

30mins and 104 calories burnt (according to my step machine). Very out of practice, but hope to work my way up.

I need to lose some of this needless extra weight I've gained this year. Ideally in time for my birthday so I can wear a nice dress!

Gym check-in [15 Mar 2006|08:32pm]

[ mood | euphoric ]

The gym, oh the gym. ♥ the gym. I have been sick, so I haven't gone in nearly a week (again!). I missed it! I feel sooooo good. I did 10 mins on the EFX for 113 cals, a weight circuit (they say it's 300+ cals the way we do it), 25/25/25/25 crunches (front, sides, lower), and then 15 mins on the EFX for 130 (or was it 160?...) cals. I got home feeling so oomphy that I did a round of DDRE. Would have done more, but the baby was tres fussy. ♥ the gym.

On a similar note, I think I'm beginning to understand runner's euphoria. I've always sought it, but have never been able to run long enough or hard enough to get it. On the EFX, my excess weight isn't crashing down on all my bones and joints every time I step, and I can keep a much faster pace for a much longer time. I close my eyes and sink into my music and I feel like I'm running on clouds. It's so fabulous. I wish I had more time to spend at the gym because I hate to sacrifice my weight circuit ever, but I'd love to spend more time on the EFX sometimes. I guess once a week or so I'll have to forgo my weights and just do the EFX. ♥

Gym! 25 mins combined on the EFX (warm-up and cool-down), I guesstimate somewhere in the vicinity of 270 calories there, plus one circuit on the weight machines, which the workers claim = 360 calories.
Total: 1 bowl of ice cream? :-D I gotta quit buying the buy 1 get 1 free quarts. :(

But I feel good, so that's good. :)
