I’ve decided I’m going to lose some weight before I go to America for Stuarts wedding. So i registered on runkeeper.com and am appalled at my inability to even run around the block. I was knackered after ten minutes and had to stop.
Admittedly I hadn’t had a drink before I went and had had quite a boozy night last night so was quite dehydrated. But I’m not going to make excuses for myself; I currently weigh 220lb (or 15.7 Stone) I want to get this down to around 13stone.
So the plan of action is: a run three times a week, every week increasing the distance. My first run was today and I managed a measly 0.76 miles. This was when I was on the verge of passing out, drenched in lager smelling sweat. Having been appalled by my fitness level, it’s no wonder I didn’t enjoy my extremely short time playing football at the beginning of the season!
Needless to say, I’m documenting all activities on runkeeper.com and will give periodic updates on the new healthy me!
