Week #3

Distance [km] Pace [min/km] Weight [kg]
Target 30
Actual 30 6:09 101.8

Third week was still on track. Hit my distance goal easily. Pace was a little slower, but that was mainly due to my easy run on Saturday – otherwise I would have easily been < 6:00 min/km. Nice to see that my body is actually noticing a calorie deficit and accordingly I am starting to see some weight loss. I will likely lose some more until I hit my first plateau.

Otherwise this running week was fairly uneventful. I am very happy to see Amelie starting to pick up running. She did well at the cross country mini-meet and she is asking to run with me on the weekends. I hope she will find running to be passion in the future to come…

Day #12

4km afternoon run with Amelie

Went up to Mundy Park with the intention to run 3 loops on the perimeter trail which would have added up to 12km. Amelie wanted to come along and I thought she might be able to run 2 loops, but the long hill killed her and she was done after the first loop and wanted to go home. The run itself felt harder than I thought despite an easy pace. Perhaps the easy run took more out of me than I thought…

8km afternoon run

After dropping Amelie off at home I ran my standard route down to Alderside and back. Pace was pretty good, but I did feel the distance a little more than I anticipated. But overall a good running day.
