Well its slow and steady this time, just another 100grams. so I am now 65.6kg. But the good news is that i got a new running book and i am all inspired, i had my first run on wednesday, which was awesome and my next one is tomorrow. I'm gunna aim for 3mins of running and one walking, with 10reps. The book gives you a formula to work out your ideal running weight, mine turned out to be 64.2kgs. dunno it seems abit heavy to me. I'm still going to aim to crack the 60kg mark.

Catch you later guys, hope you all have a good result this week!

Well done runner! slow and steady is awesome, makes me think it will be more consistent, and easier to keep it off !!! My thoughts might be off a bit, but i figure the faster it comes off, the fater it all goes back on again, and if it's slow to take off, it will take a long time to get back onto those hips!! (I never said I was sane?!)

Well done on the run! 3 mins run and 1 min walk is great! Which book did you get your perfect running weight from? How did they decide it?

Thanks for the encourgement guys! The book I have been reading is called Run for life: the real womans guide to running. by sam murphy. I am really impressed with it so far, my favourtie bit is how it explains how your body uses stored energy, its heaps interesting. The formula to work out your ideal running weight is, allow
'45.36kg for the first 1.52m of your height, and a further 2.25kg for every 2.5cm above 1.52m. For example, if you are 1.67m tall, your ideal running weight would be 45.36 + (6*2.25) = 58.92kg.' (sam murphy pg 27. Run for life).
She goes on to say that its pretty conservative, and that many healthy runners exceed this margin. But still reckonmends being within 3kg of it before you begin to run. Its just got me really spooked how much force is transferred through your joints with each step, she says on pg 80 that a 60kg woman exerts a force equal to between 20,000 and 40,000kg through your legs and spine every minute of running! I've had a good pair of runners for ages awhile now, i got them last time i was going to start running so i had them properly fitted by an expert,but of course hardly used them, but my reward for when i get to 30mins of constant jogging is definantly going to be a new pair!

Just an update on my running, today it was cold and wet and i wasn't motivated to run, but in the end i put on my gear and away i went. i was going to do 4 mins of running, one of walking with 10reps but ended up at the end of the 3 feeling really good so i just kept going. I ended up running for 20mins nearly non stop, I had a cupple of 30sec breathers. So am very proud of myself. The good thing was i never felt like i was overdoing it, I felt really good. Now i am really looking forward to my friday arvo run. I'm going to do a new trail that we've done before on the bikes.

I have to be 52kgs! ha! See the problem with that is it is a Catch 22 cos to lose the weight you need to do high intensity cardio but to do the cardio you need to lose weight :lol: I did a run last night!! I felt great actually! I think i need to get me a copy of this book Runner :? :D

I know what you mean about the maths Gordz, I've been following a training program based on run/walks, with the runs getting longer and the walks shorter. Today on my run I was finding i was struggling to run for the time i was ment to run for, so i stuck my watch in my pocket and decided i'll run till i need a break. I ran heaps better! I ran for about 25mins with only a cupple of breaks to get over some fences! So thats what i'm going to do from now on, just run for fun!
That running weight formula i think is based on performance of elite athletes, like a what weight an individual athlete perfoms best at, repeated over heaps of individuals to find an average. But what is Ideal for one may not be ideal for another. I reckon as long as you stay focused on preventing injury and not overdoing it anyone can run, and should run! How awesome is it!
