40 days of running.........ques
tions about weight loss.
Saturday, October 15, 2011
Hi everyone! Thanks for reading my blog. As you know, yesterday was my 40th run. It wasnt that long ago when I was trying to make it running a full minute, now my usual workout is 30 minutes non stop and my longer runs are 45 to 60 minutes non stop. I cant tell you how incredibly proud and confident I feel after every run. When I started this attempt at running again I told myself that this time I would run for me and not to burn off (fill in food here) or to fit into (fill in piece of clothing here). I would just run for me. BUT.....................I would like to lose some weight too. So, I am asking fellow runners about their experience/opinions. I have a Polar HR monitor watch with a chest strap so I know how many cals I burn. Runners World mag says to maintain my weight I would eat 1860 calories so I need to eat 1360 cals or less to lose a pound a week. I can do this by eating less or through exercise or both. I usually burn about 300 cals when I run for 30 minutes. What do you guys think? Any feedback is appreciated! Thanks!
