Reward for anyone who finds my lost belly

Sometimes things really sneak up on you without you noticing.  I was doing yoga at work on Tuesday lunchtime and suddenly when I looked down I realised that there was no belly obscuring my view.  I am not saying that I have a six pack by any means, but no-one in their right mind would call me fat now.   So I got on the scales just to check, and I am now down to 83kg.  Of course this figure varies slightly throughout the day, but that still means I have lost over 3kg since I started this blog a couple of months back.

I should have done one of those before and after shots with a half naked torso to really see the difference, and posted them here, but maybe that wouldn't be such a good idea anyway considering all my colleagues now know about this blog, since it is linked to my fundraising page.

Anyway, in summary I am feeling great and really starting to notice the difference all this training has made.  Only thing that still concerns me is my knees are both a bit sore, especially my left one.  Hence tomorrow will be another well earned rest day, having done yoga and hill training on Tuesday and then running at lunchtime today.  When I see the sports doctor on Monday about my knees I will ask him if I should still be training for the Zuri marathon in April.  If he says I need to take a break then I will do so, as it is better that if I have to I miss the Zuri marathon than risk a more serious injury which may set me back longer term.  I have plenty of time between now and next year to recover, and build up plenty of strength in my knees and accustom them to long distance running.  At present though the Zuri marathon is still on my agenda.
