I've just begun running, I'm on week 4 of the Couch to 5K program. I do enjoy it, and I'm proud to say I can now run five minutes without having to stop!

Congrats! Fall is a great time to get into it. And the best part is, the more weight you drop the easier it gets. Best wishes.

I run 3 times a week, around 5 kilometer, no idea what that is in miles, plz excuse me

However, like the article that was linked here a few pages back, I can see why exercise can result in weightgain instead of loss, for it makes my already big appetite even bigger.

The body is such an amazing efficient machine! It needs so little fuel to keep going and its so easy to get a daily overload of fuel to be stored as extra weight :/


So I'd probably better start walking 6 days a week for an hour instead of 3 times a week a 40 minute jog (yes I'm that slow lol) if I read that article correctly. I find it hard to be active during the day, most of the time I feel worn out, so those 40 minutes putting one foot in front of the other and concentrate on breathing are easier for me than to incorporate more activity during the whole day.

And not "reward" with junkfood of course...

Hi luscious,
Welcome. Why don't you join us in the "did you exercise thread"? It is pretty active these days.

Default Word of warning...

It's still fairly mild in the UK but I was out running without gloves on Sunday and got extremely cold hands, to the extent that the joint of one of my thumbs still feels weak two days later. Possibly a tiny bit of frostnip; no big deal in itself, but I'm definitely not going out without gloves again until I see daffodils...
