Have Just Realised ....

.... that entering the stupid half marathon is going to be very good reason / motivation to get some of this remaining lard shifted - surely carting around a stone less of me round the 2 and a I-don't-know-how-long hour course has got to be better?  My knees and quads will surely thank me mightily for it.

Must remember that, when I'm next looking at a piece of cake or glass of wine and pondering how good it will really taste!

Other realisations include:

  • it's probably definitely time I finally got round to treating my feet to some new trainers
  • if the weather's going to be as cold as they say this winter, I might want a new sports fleece and possibly a running jacket too to minimuse excuse-making opportunities ... or I'm going to have to learn to love the treadmill
  • I must get in the habit of getting more sleep - too little sleep is meant to affect your metabilism negatively, and those two nights I had earlier in the week where I tucked myself in at 10pm were kinda blissful, and I had sooooooo much more energy the next day.

I would def recommend new trainers as I suffered with shin splints until I spent a fortune on trainers.

Weight-wise I didn't lose much in training, but the toning effect was fab :)

Ooooh, a half marathon - how exciting (and also scary!)

Definitely an excuse to invest in new gear.
