Week 2 & 3 In Training

Via Boston

The weather is finally getting better, and I’m feeling quite good when it comes time to run. Instead of going for more runs, I’ve upped the mileage. It’s just because of my lack of organization. I’m going to try a few different things next week, so I should be able to go out for 4 runs per week, and do some training on my rest days.

First Week Back In Training

It’s been a while since I last went on training runs. Last year, I lost quite a bit of weight, but had trouble finding the time to train.

Week 2 in Training

This week was pretty good, but marred by an intake of carbs that pushed my weight back up to 93kg. These included bagels and whole wheat bread with raisins and nuts from Costco. Thankfully, with enough diligence and effort, it’s currently at 90.7kg, which is the lowest I’ve weighed in a long time. In hoping to reach 88kg this week. From there onward, 75kg seems within reach. My runs were actually pretty good. I recovered quite quickly, which means that I’m getting used to running again.
