Fitness Update // I did a run!

I’ve had a much better week this week, I also got my new Fitbit that acts as a heart rate monitor and tracks my runs and I love it.

I’ve been tracking what I eat and getting back into fitness after being ill. I’ve done well with food and love that my new Fitbit lets me track what’s going in and what I’m using so I can stay in a calorie deficit. I need to lose at least a stone in weight.

On Wednesday I went to the gym and did 30 mins cardio. I did 10 minutes on the treadmill, 15 minutes on the bike and 5 minutes one the elliptical.

On Thursday I did 10 minutes on the stairclimber, 15 minutes on the treadmill and then 20 minutes on the bike.

Friday I went on my first run in ages. I ran 3 miles. The first mile and half were fine but then I had a big hill that wiped me out for the rest of the run and I was walking for a bit and then running for a bit. It was very disheartening to say I’ve always been able to just get up and run 10k with no problem. I’ve lost a lot of fitness that I need to get back if I’m going to survive this half-marathon in May. The extra weight I’m carrying isn’t helping, either.

I went to the gym on Saturday, too. Despite the aches and pains from the run. I did some weights, then 20 minutes cardio. It wasn’t my best workout but I just needed to do something as I knew I was going out for a meal on Saturday AND Sunday!

4 workouts in one week though. Happy with that to say a month ago I couldn’t get off the sofa!

I’ve lost 2lbs. Which doesn’t seem like enough. More please.

How’s your week been?

    Good job! It’s amazing to hear you’ve been back to running. Some of those exercises at the gym sound really hard such as stair climbers. I don’t think I’ve done them before.

    That’s awesome! I kicked ass yesterday compared to normal, I did over 4000 steps! I need to work myself up to running, but I’m glad you’re doing well 🙂
