YAY! GOAL ACHIEVED!!!!
On my monday run I ran for 30mins nonstop! I did it on the oval near work so it was nice and flat, unlike the oval near my house which has this deceptive slope in it, its so sneaky! I did it pretty well, it was still hard, but now I'm just looking forward to my running getting faster and easier. I'm going to have to mix up my running abit now to get a bit more speed, by doing some interval training and fartlek, maybe even a few hill runs. Theres a really steep hill to the lookout above the oval that I would love to be able to run up, its about 300m long and at an angle of about 40 degrees.
Today I did a run I used to do at my first attempt at the 30mins. Its about 4k or so long, not really sure coz it follows a bike track thats hard to measure in the car. I was doing it in about 27mins at my best last time, today I did it in 26:04. I didn't make it all the way running, I got a massive stitch like the one a got a bit back, man they hurt, I couldn't work through it and had to walk about 100m through the harvey norman car park. Stitches are funny things, if i get one its usually a small one under my rib on the right side, and you can work through it, but this one I had today was like all my guts were all twisted up.
So I walked it out. I must have made a few drivers look, walking along the side of the road with my hands above my head!
Weight wise I'm doing well, I was at 61.3kg today so about 2kg down since I started.
Best wishes everyone,
