Well, it’s the start of week #2 for my Liverpool Half Marathon training and as you can see below, I rocked out on week #1. I need to sort out a better chart as I’m having all kinds of trouble with Excel at the minute. Things which I used to be able to do, I don’t seem to be able to do anymore. Old age me thinks.
Anyhoo. I’ve put in my actual training times/mileage ran, not the ones suggested on the plan. In other words, I’ve done more than I was supposed to. What can I say, I’m eager 🙂
The only downside to last week was that (on paper) I didn’t lose any weight. I say ‘on paper’ because in reality I did. Let me explain.
I initially take my weight in kgs – I know very European of me – and not only do I weigh in kgs, I also round down. For example, week ending Sat the 14th January, I weighed 142.85 kgs, which rouned down to 142 kgs. I then extrapolate for stones and pounds – /// 22 st 04 lbs /// 312 lbs. Week ending Sat 21st January I weighed 142.1 kgs, which also rounded down to 142 kgs /// 22 st 04 lbs /// 312 lbs. You see my problem. What it means in reality, is that I lost about 1.5 lbs this week, but, I can’t show it. It also means I didn’t weight 22 st 04 lbs on the 14th 🙂 Swings and round-abouts people, swings and round-abouts. I think next week I’ll convert the full kg weight to pounds and then divide for stones. That will give me a more accurate weight. Damn this weekly weigh thing. I enjoyed monthly more, but, I still need a bit of weekly for now, just to keep track 🙂

The chart needs altering as I’ve actually eight weeks training time, but you already know that cos I told you last week. Arghhhhh excel!!!
