I am still running!(updated 30.09)

Update 30.09: Added last run.

About a week ago I decided to start training for a marathon next year. First I wanted to start strong with a training session every other day but this was too much. I have started running 3 times a week and the two first weeks I will run 3,5 km and then I will go up to 5,5 km. Right now I am not looking at my time or average pace but rather getting motivation from getting faster although its only 3,5 km. It’s important to stay motivated and having a schedule that fits your lifestyle is important. I hope I can motivate someone reading this wanting to start training as well. I post updates to my Instagram if you want to follow along, I am going to try to update my blog once week with a little update. After every run I will also update the recent blog post with my running times.

I have also started tracking what I eat and how much I weigh(App: Lifesum). After 4 days of tracking I have found out that I don’t eat enough calories to go up in weight. I have weighed between 57-61kg my whole life. I would like to go up to 68kg. I don’t really get hungry so I  have to start eating breakfast, lunsj and dinner even though I am not hungry if I want to go up in weight.

Today I will go out and buy a smart scale, that tracks body fat and muscle percentage. After some research I think the Nokia Body+ scale fits my needs. Beware that these sBody+_&_Health-Mate_EN.pngmart scales are not perfect, the readings has a lot to do with your body shape. It uses conductive charges to see the resistance in your body, if you are person who is pear shaped most of the body fat is around your hip, that means it will give a wrong reading. My body fat is mostly spread out, so it will give the best reading for my body type. What is important is that you are consistent with when you take your readings, for example every morning after you have gone to the toilet, because yes, poo and piss will show as resistance and the scale will think its body fat.
