I really thought I’d cracked the two and a half stone loss mark this morning, not that I am officially still losing weight or anything ;-). Instead I fell a pound short. Hopefully I will do it next week. I’ll have to be careful though, because if lose much more than that I shall have fallen out the bottom of my range.
I went for my assessment at the personal trainer this morning. It seems that I am not in need of any rehabilitation but am definitely in need of strentghening and balancing. I have a couple of things to do for homework, before going back next week to really get stuck in. He reckons I could run the Great South Run next year!!! I still think that’ll be pushing it but am game to try.
Also, I have booked myself in for some swimming lessons this term. I can swim, mainly breast-stroke, but haven’t been for years. The lessons will teach me front crawl (and a crawl is exactly what it WILL be for the first few sessions), and I may be brave enough to learn to tumble turn. Swimming lessons aren’t just for children and aren’t just to teach you to swim. If I can get my crawl technique sorted then I’ll no longer crick my neck and shoulders doing breast-stroke.
I’m planning on going for a run tomorrow morning.
