Hi everyone! Thanks for reading my blog. As you know, yesterday was my 40th run. It wasnt that long ago when I was trying to make it running a full minute, now my usual workout is 30 minutes non stop and my longer runs are 45 to 60 minutes non stop. I cant tell you how incredibly proud and confident I feel after every run. When I started this attempt at running again I told myself that this time I would run for me and not to burn off (fill in food here) or to fit into (fill in piece of clothing here). I would just run for me. BUT.....................I would like to lose some weight too. So, I am asking fellow runners about their experience/opinions. I have a Polar HR monitor watch with a chest strap so I know how many cals I burn. Runners World mag says to maintain my weight I would eat 1860 calories so I need to eat 1360 cals or less to lose a pound a week. I can do this by eating less or through exercise or both. I usually burn about 300 cals when I run for 30 minutes. What do you guys think? Any feedback is appreciated! Thanks!
