5:2 Intermittent Fasting Week 7

Saturday, April 27, 2013

did my two days fasting this week and Iíve lost another 2lbs! Iím down to 204.6lbs in total and Iím slowly creeping up on the hallowed sub 200lbs Iíve been searching for for so long.

Iíve been quite good this week though (apart from a trip to a REALLY nice restaurant on Wednesday). Iíve been to the gym twice and running once.

At the gym Iíve been focusing on strength training. Iíve been working on bench press, dead lifts and squats. Big muscle moves which are bound to help me lose some of this horrible fat.

My running training is still aimed (in the long run) at my half marathon in October but next Saturday I have a 10km ďfun runĒ which Iím using as a judge of my current ability. After that my next race is a 3km in July following quickly by a 10km and a 5 mile run. The 10km and the 5 miler Iím really looking forward too.

The 10km is the British 10km London Run. This runs right through the centre of London, starting at Picadilly and finishing on Whitehall. Excited isnít even the word.

The 5 miler is the National Lottery Anniversary Run. This is a run around the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and finishes on the track in the Olympic stadium! I NEVER thought I would EVER run in a proper athletics stadium let alone the London OLYMPIC stadium!!

Great times ahead.

    Wow you are so focused right now & I guess you need to be with all the running you have planned this year!! Wishing you the very best of luck for all your endeavours and I'm sure you'll be under 200lbs in no time. Will have to check your other blogs out to see if I can see a pretty ring pic, hope you posted one! Great work, keep it up!
