I decided to get on the treadmill this morning and see how long it would take me to walk/jog/run 4km. I have entered the mothers day fun run every year since 2005 and this year I would like to be able to run the 4km event!
It took me 34 mins to do a combination of walk at 6.0km/h, jog at around 7.4km-8km/h and I even did a few 9.0km/h sprints! Go me! Felt pretty freaking awesome. Want to get that time under 30mins, so I'm going to start to do this "treadmill training" once a week for the next month, and then maybe look at getting out there and pounding the pavement.
Amazing that before I could barely keep up the 6.0km/h walking for 20mins and now I'm at this level! Still a long way to go though... my colleague who sits next to me at work runs 40km marathons!!
Everything with the band is good at the moment. I managed to eat a cheese and vegemite roll yesterday for lunch. It took me a while, but I had small bites and chewed thoroughly. Dinner was half a veal cordon bleu, a tablespoon of veg and a tablespoon of cheesy rice. 6 olives gets me full, which is perfect! Still tight in the morning, so have been having celebrity slim shakes with some extra berries. Tonight I'm going to make my famous vege soup that my hubby just loves!
Still no news re the job situation...
