The Lighter SideMy progress to a lighter me and 25min 5km ...
Quick recap of the weeks training targets and my starting weight.
Monday - Friday 8km @ 6:30 per km
Saturday 15km @ 7:00 per km.
Starting weight 13st 13lb / 88.5kg / 195lbs
So how did I get on?
Monday to Thursday I did the 8km slightly faster at 6:25 per km
Friday, the wife kicked me out of the house to run with my son :) He paced me around a 5km local route in 29:35
Saturday I did 8.1 miles (13km) in 90 minutes. I didn't want to take the run any longer than 90 minutes at this stage of my running.
Sunday morning weigh had me coming in at 13st 10lb / 87kg / 192lbs
Pretty chuffed with that.
Week 2 Plan is pretty similar to Week 1. Upon reviewing my heart rate levels I'm going to slow it down a notch and increase the mileage a bit.
Mon-Fri 9km @ 6:45 per km
Saturday hopefully another 13km or so, I might be away so I'll have to see if this is possible.
Weight loss might be a struggle due the enormous carvery meal I had at the pub on Sunday !
