Am I becoming a runner?

hmmm, second night on the row and i’m out running – what is going on? I decided to try something different after reading The Amazing Shrinking Gaz’s blog about bonk training.

I had nothing to eat all afternoon, I normally have a number of biscuits etc

Got home, put the kids, had 2 cups of coffee and then a little later went for a run.

I was going to use the sportstracker on my phone, but was unable to get a gps fix, which I later found was due to a low battery, so I ended up fannying about and lost a few minutes trying to get it working. After I gave up on the sportstracker idea I carried on with my run, which was the same as the night before, just short of 2 miles and it took just under 30 minutes

Well what can I say.. When I got home and sat down my whole body felt like an inferno. A colleague of mine was saying that it’s down to the body burning fat reserves to fuel the exercise.

I think I’ll have a night off tonight as my legs are quite sore, but will repeat the process again and see how the weight loss is going.

  1. Doing great, be careful it is easy to overdo it with running very quickly! It takes a while for the body to adapt!

    I find it gets me fit quicker than cycling though!

  2. I hurt in the calves, still after 4 weeks of running every other (or next) night. Other than that I’m really noticing the difference in fitness. I was ableto run much better at my weekly footy game last night, a sprint to the goal usually was followed by a period of trying not to hurl, but last night was much better. Keep it up fella!

  3. I don’t know If I said it already but …Cool site, love the info. I do a lot of research online on a daily basis and for the most part, people lack substance but, I just wanted to make a quick comment to say I’m glad I found your blog. Thanks, 🙂

    A definite great read….
