Kinda stupid but good

I’ve been on this weight-loss kick for a little while, being somewhat successful but still a long way to go. My target is 200 lbs or thereabouts by thxgiving. Lost about 12-14 so far and another 18 to go.

Anyhow, decided this morning to see if I could run on the treadmill for the entire Chelsea-Man Utd game. I started about 10 mins ahead of time and I ran (with occasional walking) for 2 hours.

I actually did 10.5 miles – I was wanting to keep going at the end (but I had to go and pick my son up) so that I could get to 13 miles – I figured that would be cool to do the equivalent of a half marathon.

Now, anyone that knows me knows that (a) I’m overweight, currently around 218 lbs (15 1/2 stone) (b) I don’t run very often (c) I have done absolutely no training.

Must admit my legs are aching like anything the rest of the day (advil!) and I am not looking forward to tomorrow morning but I’m happy. Really wish I had had the time available to keep going….reckon I’d have done my 1/2 marathon in about 2 1/2 hours.

Next weekend – I’m going to go for 13 miles. The key for me is to not get bored….watching football enables me to do so.
