4.19 KM Short Run

I hadn’t eaten much all day, so I ate two Whoppers. I shouldn’t have, because right after I felt a bit sick. The feeling persisted until I started running. The run was painful and somewhat harder than yesterday. Also there must have been some kind of a glitch in my Garmin. I covered more ground but the count was shorter than yesterday. It probably had to do with then I started it on the 4th floor. I lost the signal on the stairs and it must have skipped.

It took me 40:43 to finish the run. I felt slower than yesterday, but tried keeping the pace and taking less breaks. I’ll have no problems attaining my goal of 15-20km in my first week of running. I don’t think I’ll go for a long run on Sunday, just a normal one. It’s what I used to do before, but for now, I’m concentrating on losing weight and getting back in shape.

I had my HRM and music with me. My average HR was 154bpm and my highest 200.

I eat a lot of mangoes, sometimes I drink two 3-mango smoothies a day. Each mango counts for 2 portions of fruit, so I can eat 12 portions of fruit pretty easily. Today, I had a 3-banana smoothie and a 3-mango smoothie, plus those burgers. I think I’m craving fish, so I might get some salmon tomorrow.
