Here’s a really, really quick update on my fitness and weight loss. Following the “Couch to 5k” programme as delivered by the iPhone app Get Running, I have completed my first 30 minute run today. Tracking my path with iMapMyRun reveals that I covered 4.96km, so I guess I’m there. Now I can work on decreasing the time and/or increasing the distance.

Good news too from the scales. After a few days of levelling off, my weight this morning was 142.8lb which means I’ve lost 17.2kg and have only 2.8kg to go!
