Weigh in and running

Monday, June 18, 2012

I weighed in this morning and have lost a pound since getting back from university, putting me at 153. It's good that I lost the pound, but depressing since when I last went back to Oxford, I weighed 144! Err... oops.

But still, I have a good three and a half months at home now, and after that a kitchen when I go back to Oxford! I think not being able to control my food was the main reason I put on weight.

I laced up my running shoes and hit the road for my first run since I got home. The reason I love running when I'm at home so much? My route must be one of the prettiest, most picturesque in the world.

It's so calming running here, as opposed to in Oxford where there's people and traffic and I have to cross a buttload of roads to reach a park which is absolutely full of people.

However, it was kind of a rubbish run. About a mile in, my feet started aching big time - the arches and my heel - and I had to take a few short breaks to try and give them a rest. I was planning on doing a long run today, but I had to give up and quit at about 2.5 miles.


My running buddy always says if you're covered in mud when you get home, it was a good run. Obviously this does not always apply.

I joined a jump rope challenge team, and part of the challenge is to do 60 jumps a day. I did 70 - nothing fancy, 50 slow, 20 fast. I'm working on the ones where you cross your arms over as you jump, but my rope is slightly too long for me and keeps getting tangled!

I tried some of Linda Mccartney's vegetarian sausages for dinner (random, didn't know she had a food company. I like to think she makes them herself.) and they were actually super tasty. I will be having them again and would thoroughly recommend them :)
