Friday I headed back to my parents place in Melbourne and as usual couldn't avoid my habitual binge once there. By the time the evening was out I'd eaten 80g of Mars Bar slice, 25g of thins potato chips, and 2 hash browns *sigh*. At least I'd managed to run 4.39k and cycle 8.11k at the gym to make up for a little of it.
Sunday I was really looking forward to as it was my chance to meet up with some other 12wbters finally. I was very disappointed that of the 12 people who had signed up (& hadn't pulled out), only 2 others besides me showed up. Still, it was nice to meet the 2 ladies I did meet, and have a chat about how we were going. The 1000 steps themselves definitely got my heart rate up (max 192!) even though I only walked up them, but overall it wasn't much of a workout as the whole thing only took 40 min, and walking down, though hard on the knees, wasn't much of a workout.
When I got home I took the dogs out for a walk to try and burn a few more cal.
Today I hit the gym a bit earlier than usual, and after a 3min warm-up started to see how fast I could run while still keeping my heart rate below 190. 9km/hr seemed to be about the do-able speed, so I ran 4k doing that, told myself I'd just do 5 as my right knee was starting to hurt as usual, then somehow with my FitRadio app playing and a bit of willpower, I managed to run for 65min straight and a total of 10km! All at 9km/hr besides the first 3min walking warm-up! I was pretty stoked as I'd never run that far before.
