Things are getting serious now! I’m up to 8 miles on my runs!

This week I went to the gym Tuesday and Thursday after work and did 40 minutes cardio. Friday I ran 8 miles and as usual, it was hard.

I know I keep saying this, but I feel like I forget how hard it is when the run is over until the next time I run and I’m like ‘oh no, this again, why am I doing this to myself?’.

I weigh a stone and a half more than the last time I was doing a half marathon and I can really see the difference in my times and feel the difference running. It’s hard to lug the extra weight around. I’ve not weighed myself in ages but I’m hoping I’ll lose some weight. I just need to get the courage to step on the scale!

I also ran 4 miles on Sunday. It wasn’t the fastest pace, but 20 seconds per mile faster than my last 4 mile run a few weeks ago. So that’s something, I guess.

I’m going to London today, I’m hoping to run 9 miles on Thursday morning when I’m back and then go out for another run across the weekend.

How’s your week been?
