Here is the summary of my weight-maintenance results for Day 44: 90-minute run (nonstop jogging session) and weight loss of .6 kg. That is over 1.2 pounds.
After eating a meal and then running in the afternoon for 90 minutes, I was way down to 74.2 kg. That’s a good drop. I went back up to 75.1 after eating and drinking water. I drank quite a bit because I was rehydrating from the run.
At this point, I am exactly break even on the day. And it’s 3.30 in the afternoon. The basic plan from this point is to have one or two small meals the rest of the day. If I stay disciplined, it will be a good day for weight loss by the time of my morning weigh-in. But discipline is key. I should have lost weight yesterday and ate too much the last meal.
As far as my physical condition, I still have a lingering stomachache and have no idea what is causing it. So while a ran a little bit slower than I wanted to because running faster was causing more stomach pain, that did not stop me from losing about 1.5 kg during the run. That’s pretty close to the average that I achieved during my full weight-loss mode.
At 6:45 p.m., I was doing very well after one more small meal. My weight was 75.2 kg. So I can afford to have one more small meal and should be fine.
It had been a while since I ran for 90 minutes. That sure feels like a long time when running it. But if you keep up the right pace, it’s not that bad as long as you build up to it. In my Pentamize Weight Loss System book, I give you tips on how to work up to long runs. You can even start out with runs of less than 5 minutes if you are out of shape now. You can get a digital copy from the home page.
After my last meal, I was 75.5 kg. That included quite a bit of water. So the actual amount of food was pretty small.
My morning weigh-in was 74.5 kg. That is a good loss of .6 kg today. The following 5 days of running sessions can be seen below. And the totals and average refer to all 30 days of this type of workout session.
