    Hey Guys,

    Going to have my first weigh after falling off the wagon next week.

    I have been so good! Managed to run 3 times this week and climbing a mountain saturday.

    My new rule is - every day im in work early im going to get up at 6am and go running with the dog and my hubby.

    This means when I get home from work I can slob out if I want.

    Wonder if anyone would like to join me? Dedicate 3 mornings a week just for a 25-35 min run take your dog, husband or a running buddy. Then on the weekend weather permiting - go to the park/beach/mountain and have a good walk! Or swimming, biking..playing with the children..Use the weekend as fun excercise - you wont even realise it is excercise! :character00115:

    Lets keep motivated, I know early starts are hard but once your out in the morning air you'll be so refreshed it will be worth it!

    Regards,

    Lady b x:bliss:

    I have been really bad this week - went away on a course, stuck to plan for a day and a half, but then disaster struck!! I couldn't do a 30min run as planned and then just pigged out at dinner (cheesecake, cheese and crackers WITH butter, large glass of wine) and it's been down hill ever since :( Don't even want to think about what I ate yesterday and how many syns I went over :(

    Today is a new day :) I will stick to plan :) and go and do my run :) although I understood that it wasn't good to run everyday (confussed) so I'm with you honey :)

    Its not mornings though (not for me anyway, I'm not good in the mornings) - I just run whenever/wherever I can fit it in.

    Susie - I dont think there are any hard and fast rules about running and rest days, I know that when I started out I was following couch to 5K which recommended rest days, but I found I had most time at the weekends so usually didnt have time to have rest days if I wanted to fit in 3 runs a week - seems to have been okay for me so far.

    I think generally if you are starting out running it is best to have rest days, but once you have progressed a bit more its not so important (some of the bridge to 10K programmes I have seen for example have runs on consecutive days)

    :p I get up at 6am every morning, but that's just to go to work.

    In all seriousness you're doing well. Keep it up!
