Running to lose weight.
Now he has awoken and decided it is time for a change (need just to check that it is not April Fools Day!).
So today Thursday 16th April 2009 we made a trip into Belfast to purchase some running shoes, especially designed for overweight runners (lots of cushioning!).
Over the next few weeks he is going to faithfully chart his progress with a detailed training diary. He is hoping this will inspire both him and others in similar circumstances.
(just nipping out to going to collect the “Run Fat Boy Run DVD”)
Well here “HE” goes:
Height: 6ft Weight: 95kgs

By the way the shoes I am using are Saucony Ride with Pro/Grid cushioning and are a 9 and a half size, one half size larger than my civilian shoes.
That will do for a start this week!
