I ran!

Well, I went out for my first run today. I waited until dark so that I wouldn't be seen slowly dieing whilst running haha. I didn't do to badly I don't think. I ran just under 4 miles in about 41 mins, which averaged out at over 5mph. I really enjoyed it, even when I thought I might die lol

I've just been given some advice on how to warm up and cool down. I did do some small excercises, but what i've been told is quite useful, as it may stop the pains I have now. I'm not in agony, but I can feel the odd twinge when walking. The real test will be in the morning, I have to commute in, which could be interesting.

Start of a new week...

Well, I've decided that I'm going to try and start running in the evenings. I was going to go out tonight for a short run and see how I do, but I was in Tesco a little longer than I had planned (they didn't have any of the small trolleys so I had to carry a basket, then I found a huge trolley so used that lol).
Anywho, I'm determined to go out tomorrow. Near where I live there is a nice park with a lake in it, and I think that a run to the park, round the lake and back should be a nice reintroduction to running. Back when I was in school I was quite good at x-country, so I'm hoping that I can get good at it again as it's a great way to shed some pounds.

Oh, I bought some scales! :o) My first weigh in is 85kg, which is 13.4st. Now, I'd like to get that down to about 11st, but more than that, I'd like to go down from my 35" waist to about 32". Now, I think this is quite a tall order, but it must be possible, as I went from a 32" waist to 35" when I was about 18/19 and I haven't grown since then.

So, we shall see where we can get to in a short space of time!

It's been quite a while since I posted on here, so I shall try and get back into the swing of things.

My PS3 arrived, and I've been playing it a lot, it's great! I'm loving it, though I'm going to be picky about which games I buy, and sell them when I've finished them as I have so many for the PS2 that were either rubbish, or just gathered dust.

My mission this year is to get myself looking good. I've just seen a photo of a member of a forum that I'm on, and he has a fantastic build (in fairness, he's in the army and 21, so has a reason) but he has a thin waist and big chest. I hope I can manage it, I have a decent sized chest as it is, but I really want to go back to a thin waist like I used to have, so my mission is to do it.
Not sure how, but we'll see. More biking and maybe some running too should help. Will have to buy some running shoes though.

Right, I'm off to do some organ practise now. Will probably get bored, I have been doing lately, but that's a different story.
