Finished - Here's Some Stats!

Recommended Posts

Today is a good day, I've finished the 8 weeks and loved it so much I put an extra half mile in as I felt pretty fresh.  I'm so motivated to start the 10k programme next week.  Not bad for someone who hadn't done any running for 8 years and was a true couch potato at the start.


I've been using runkeeper since I started this back at the beginning of February so I thought it might be good to share some stats.  I hope it's a motivation for others and doesn't put anyone off continuing with their programme.


I had no repeat days so here goes with the info:


8 weeks


24 activities


67 miles!


14:30 average pace - 1st week

11:02 average pace - final week


9,491 calories burned


12 lbs weight lost


I was never really a big fan of running previously but I think I've got the bug now...at last.  It took long enough (I'm mid 40's!).  One thing is key with the programme....it was 70% mental and 30% physical for me.  Get your head right from the start and you'll make it through.  There's a couple of weeks that feel like a sudden jump in effort.  Just get through them and don't quit!


I was fortunate enough to get through without any injuries and I hope everyone else has the same good fortune.


Good Luck!!
