      Getting ready to run my first timed 5k this morning. Training for a half marathon at the end of July.

      Hope it went well

      Coming up to the 3 month mark of doing a bit of training

      Up to 3 times a week now, which I never thought I could be arsed doing but as with a lot of things it's addictive once you get going. Been addicted to a lot worse over the years 😂

      I'm a hell of a lot stronger than when I started (was weak as pish to be fair)

      Can definitely see and feel the difference but not quite as much as I'd have liked. Entirely my fault though as I just enjoy eating sh*te too much and I've got an eating plan I should be sticking to but just don't.

      Next holiday is 28th August so plan on cleaning up my eating (from tomorrow, diets always start on a Monday don't they? 😂) and try to get into better shape for it.

      Well I'm still well into my workouts and diet, managed to keep my motivation and determination, even on days that have been a nightmare at work and where I could easily not bother. I'm probably feeling better now than I ever have done even though it will take a while yet to get back to the level I was before, unfortunately you lose it easier than you can re-build it. My goal is to get back to around 235-240lbs and I'm currently at around 220ish. It's going well though so hopefully I can continue to stick with it. Struggled with my left arm for the last week from a slight injury but nothing major, just one of them injuries that happen from time to time.

      A bit of a balls up at the Brum 1/2 marathon today with the course reduced to 11 miles, contestants being told it was due to flooding but turns out it was due to a ā€œsuspicious carā€.

      To say there was a few runners fuming would be a understatement.

      Finished in 1.32.46
