Well, after my initial shock about a week ago as to the state of my general fitness, the sunshine on the horizon has come a little closer than I expected, with some very pleasing results. I decided that I should embark on some serious cardio work to elevate my level of fitness, so last week I went running three times! Now, this may not seem a big deal to some, but you must realise that I hate running with a passion akin to going to the dentist! That being said, I increased the intensity of each running circuit throughout the week & braved some pretty dire winter weather, but I did it – I just let the stubborn goal-orientated me take over & drive me to completion.
Curiosity go the better of me on the weekend & I just wanted to know if all of this running would amount to anything, so off I went to purchase some weigh scales. Well, almost as big as the shock I had a week ago, I had a pleasing result as the digital display blinked at me before delivering it’s verdict. What was it, you wonder..? I am proud to announce a loss of 9lbs – roughly 4 kilos for you metric bods. This running stuff works, you know. This has given me an extra ‘spur’ to carry on, so I’ll keep you updated in about a week, if you like.
Someone once said what gets measured gets done…..and they were right.
