Just like you, but different
This page is sadly neglected, not because I’m not getting less, it just seems a bit ‘meh’.
47km t get to a 2500km level, 1550 miles of exercise. All genuine, all pushed as hard as I could go on the day, no mooching.
It’s getting colder, which explains the drop off, that and the wear and tear on the body, and the getting through shoes at an alarming pace.
Weight is still constant in the 90-91kg range, which is around 200lbs. The doctor isn’t happy want’t this to drop. Considering I was over 130 a couple years back I think I’m not doing so bad.
All I have to do is stop drinking beer, and eating the snack foods, right?
I really need to update this.
I’ve passed 2000kms travelled in exercise.
I’ve worn out a couple pairs of shoes with others about to be retired.
It’s been a while since I updated this then.
To recap though.
By month, in km’s this is 55.8 / 49.1 / 41 / 40.8 / 94 / 53.4 / 103.1 / 134.8 / 115.5 and October is 104.4 plus whatever I do tomorrow.
Did I mention that I ran a single Mile at 8:55 🙂 just the once, and a single Km of 5:01 seems so long ago, and I I got down to 30:10 for 5Km
To recap though.
Now there’s a thing. In a calendar year I managed by one way or another to achieve over 700km of exercise.
Couple of off months when injury and inclement weather took over, but I did go 12 straight months and of each time I did at least 5km.
I have no ambition to 10. I have no ambition to do a 1/2 marathon, or a whole marathon. None. Don’t ask me.
4th of January 2013. 5 Km. Wearing Nike Free shoes, because they are my shoe of choice at this point.
Wearing New Balance shoes , I make that 13 minutes faster over the same distance.
I’ve just about worn out the 2nd pair of Nike Free shoes, the blue ones they’ve got 284km on them and look a bit sad. I retired the black ones at 268km.
I’ve got a just worn in 148k on some NB Minimus and only 62km on the Yellow NB shoes. Spread it around a little. It’ll be a shame to see the Nike shoes move to the shelf and retire. Might invest in some new ones in the new year, I think the 2 pairs of NB shoes will carry me
What a shambles June’s turned into
Too much work, too many late days, not enough enthusiasm in the mornings
25Km over 5 days, hardly going to prepare anyone for a marathon, not that I’m considering one.
But weight came down to 92kg, seem I broke through the 94kg thing that was proving stubborn.
I took up playing 5-a-side- football
haven’t worn the new NB shoes yet.
But I have hopes for July and into August
What a disaster.
Calf Strain on the 25th meant I could not close out the month and I’ve been unable to continue.
Did get a new fasted 5Km time though, which is pleasing
Weight bumped to 94kg which is proving stubborn to get under, mostly because I ate like a horse in the last two weeks in comfort mode.
Can’t wait to continue back on my journey.
Annoying close to 100 kms again
Weight slowly coming down.
Have a new pair of New Balance Minimus Shoes that seem to be going ok
Although I still tighten up around the ankles/calves after a couple hours. I have to work on this as it’s not a good thing.
Although the chart above is wrong!, count the green lines you’ll see 16, I have no idea what one it thinks is missing.
I got to 17 walks, for over 102Kms and that took 14 1/2 hours 🙂 I’ve crept down to 97Kg from 105Kg, which is slightly faster than I’d hoped for, was sort of aiming for 1kg a month, for a slow decline rather than a fasting and hope diet.
The 79.61 kms so far compares to the 86km I walked in January, and there a few more days to go.
I’m struggling with sore shins, which is over-striding, so I’m working at that, and mu knees don’t appear to be up for a run of any great distance, I’m taking advice on that
At around 2Kms I have a sweat on, I might have to try harder in those first 2 kms
Weight loss is minimal, but is a net loss 🙂 I miss the walking when I haven’t done it
|Date||Walk Time||KM Distance||KPH Avg||Pace/km||Miles Distance||Pace /mile||MPH Avg|
Got a wriggle on at one point and had a 7.43 for 1Km, wooop!
Despite a few days away, eating and sleeping badly I’ve done ok, the weight thing is heading downwards, at a medium pace, but it is below 100kg
New Thin me is in here somewhere, probably where old thin me was.
