    Oh my!! Wow! How amazing is that?! No way my 13 week weigh in is going to be any where near as impressive! You are a total star!

    How are you feeling on the running front by the way? I wanted to start again but was worried as one of the doctors in work confirmed that I wouldn't be able to convert the fat quickly enough on such few calories and would start burning muscle (she explained the ketosis to me in an understandable way but I so can't remember to repeat it!) so that worried me and put me off! I know you research everything, so convince me it's safe to get back on the treadmill or go out for a little jog?? I dreamt I was running the other night and felt brilliant!

    I've felt great on the running front.
    I've only done as much as I feel I should be, and I stopped and walked the rest when I felt I had run enough.

    Doing 15 or 20 minutes, I feel, is not dangerous or detrimental.
    It appears to have given my body a wakeup call this week, so I'm going to keep doing it!

    Oooh, I might try it this week. I feel I could run, as I have loads of energy, but have been too scared to do anything!! I'm going to go on your advice and see how it feels when I try it! Thanks Pete!

    good to know an LLC agrees!
    I've always said, your body will soon let you know if you are doing something it doesn't like!

    Poppy, that;s the same reason I started to run in the first place. 2 weeks of walking around to/from work, and just *feeling* that my legs wanted to go faster than my head was allwoing them to. So this week I just though, you know what? f*ck it, I'm just gonna do it, and see what happens.

    SO glad I did. Now I can't wait to get my bike out tomorrow for the first time in aaages, and I *know* that I'm going to have the energy and fitness level to have a blast on it :)

    Good luck with your running!
    It gets addictive, I warn you! :D

    I used to run three times a week for an hour on the treadmill and loved it (obviously about seven years' ago before I was over 15 stone!!) I've never really been one to run the streets, but I might try it. Darn, just thought, don't think I've got any trainers.

    But you've given me another idea and I might get out on my bike. I bought a really good one (Giant) and only went on it once before I got pregnant with Charlie. I'm going to get it out and dust it off this week. I really need to up my activity level to be honest.

    Ah poppy but you forget having no trainers is a reason to shop ;). I agree with pete it's definately addictive! I can't wait to get up and go now :).

    We should have our own runners thread, I'm sure Ls said something like this a while ago but we never started one.

    Poppy, nice idea with the bike, but be warned!
    I got mine out this morning, and jeez, it was SO much harder than running.

    I guess my legs are used to carrying around 20+ stone of me, so walking and to a lesser extent running feels OK, but the bike was something different.

    I found 30 minutes of it really hard going, and my legs were burning like hell by the time I got home. I never got out of breath, but it just made me feel so tired, far moreso than the running has in the past week (and I don't mean *yawn* sleepy tired, I mean *collapse in a pile of zzzz's as my whole body just doesn't want to go anymore* tired)

    I don't think I'm going to do it again until I'm back on f**d TBH. I'll keep running to get my fitness level up, but the biking just felt way too much for me to do at the moment :(

    Yikes!! :eek: I'm going to avoid that then! I know from walking up the stairs at work, when I do more than two flights my thigh muscles really start to burn and just feel 'tired'. I can therefore imagine that the bike is going to hurt, especially as it's worn you out!

    Right, plan A then and I'll go shopping for trainers like FYM says! ;
