Finally Below 210lbs / 15 Stone. Weigh In 209.7lbs And BMI 26.3.
Today’s weigh in sees me finally fall below 210lbs. Another small loss but still going in the right direction!
Went out for a run earlier today and it was fucking awful. I think I ran the 2nd mile too fast and the next 3 miles were a complete struggle.
Around the 2nd mile, I got some abuse off children. I got a “you’re too fat to run”. I was gonna shout something back at him but it’s not cool hurling abuse at kids no matter if they are complete assholes. I just bit my lip and continued on with my running.
Recently I’ve tried to run further than 6.2 miles every time, but on this run it wasn’t happening. I was cursing everything and everyone inside my head. I was just burning up with rage and my body wasn’t coping well.
Looking back on it I could have handled it better by just accepting that my body is probably tired after 100 miles in a fortnight. Being an Angry Jogger just doesn’t work for me any more.
It wasn’t even the right type of hatred I was experiencing today. On Friday, when the dog ran after me I had true probably bright-white-light rage. I broke into a sprint instead of biting my lip and ended up doing the next mile in about 9:30.
So I guess some anger is good for running. It’s just when it spills over into attacking lamp posts, gates or park benches that I don’t do so well.
