Friday was a day for crappy food, so I wasn’t expecting to loose. Went for lunch with some of the girls in my team and chose to eat with them. Alongside a couple of not so good days, things were not in my favour.
Did Parkrun again this week, got a new PB! I ran for a small amount of it, and I felt I was walking faster too. I’m a bit nervous about next week as I’ll be going to a new parkrun on my own, but at the same time looking forward to it.
5k PB: 56:12
Hello 2018, and hello readers – if there is anyone out there.
2017 has been a tough year with lots of ups and downs. I’m done with making excuses for myself though, it’s about time I suck it up and power through.
I’m no longer going to Slimming World, I’d lost faith in it and wasn’t inspired. I could have tried another group, but I don’t want to. Andrew and I have a plan, a food plan which is healthy, full of fruit, vegetables and protein. We’ll also be food prepping for the week ahead, to ensure we have plenty of go-to healthy meals.
Over the next few weeks I’m challenging myself to do a 5k every week. I signed up to parkrun – free 5k trails around the country on Saturday mornings run by volunteers. I went to my first one this morning, and got in at a time of 58:06. My PB baseline! Now I have something to work from. I walked the course, and ran the last 100 meters or so to cross the finish line.
I feel proud of myself for completing it, I wanted to give up in the first mile as my back and ankles were painful. I hope next week will be less painful.
