Thanks for the comments about wheather or not let co-workers about your blog. I’m going to stay with my point and don’t share it with co-workers. It’s something for me. Sure it’s a public blog and anyone can read it if they want to but they have to do some research before they found me. I didn’t link my blog on my Twitter and Facebook (which I hardly use) account for that reason.
Amy said this in her comment “Plus I guess most people probably are a lot less interested in us than we would like to admit!” and I think that’s true. I know only about 3 people in my daily life that they read my blog for sure. More people know about it but I think they don’t take the time to read it. That’s fine by me. The thing I like about blogging is “getting to know” people from different countries and it’s a way to talk about your running/weight loss with people who are running or in a weight loss journey too.
I just keep going writing my blog and reading yours and appreciate your comments. And keep work and private still private as I always have done.
Woehoe … I DID IT! I ran my first 11K ever! But it was a tough one. The first 7K I was doing great but between 7 and 8K it became a struggle till the end. I still start off on my long runs too fast. My pace should be around 7:12 / 7:29 per K but this run it was 7:08 per K. Considered the fact that my first K’s were below 7 minutes, overall I ran too fast. I need to slow down at the beginning so I won’t collapse at the end. Something to work on. That being said: I’m damn proud of myself I did it!
Weather: sunny, hardly any wind, 19C/66 degrees.
Distance: 11 K / 6.8 miles
Average time: 7:08 /km
Average speed: 8.4 km/hour
Last song on Ipod before finish: Madonna – Like a prayer.
Review week 33:
Monday: Running, 4.3K/2.6 miles, 30 minutes, burned 362 calories.
Tuesday: Cardio workout, 43 minutes, burned 263 calories.
Thursday: Running, 3K/1.8 miles, 20 minutes, burned 264 calories.
Saturday: Running, 11K/6.8 miles, 1 hour and 18 minutes, burned 943 calories.
Distance: 18.3 K / 11.3 miles
Burned calories: 1832
The final countdown:
A salad with smoked chicken breast, cucumber and cherry tomatoes with a dressing of olive oil, vinegar and mustard. I had an Italian bread with it which I didn’t finish completely.
Calories: 1695 (goal 1500-1700).
Calories burned: none (daily exercise not counted)
Notes: Stayed below 1700 calories even though I gave myself a treat. It was a cookie with lots of butter which I bought at the bakery, total of 422 calories. But I had normal meals during the day so it didn’t do much “damage” to my daily total.
A salad with fricandeau, pickles, croutons, pasta and a bit balsamico dressing. 379 cal.
Calories: 1566 (goal 1500-1700).
Calories burned: 943 (daily exercise not counted)
Notes: I fell back at an old habit in the evening. I had some chips, not as much as I used to eat on a Saturday night but still. I’m not happy with that because it’s got a lot of calories and I don’t want to go back to that habit. So got to leave the chips alone. Lucky that my dinner had not that much calories so overall I stayed within my goal.
