A little lighter. A lot shapelier.
As i do not want to post pictures of my actual bottom, but wanted to pass on some good news, i tried to draw a picture in Paint. I'm that sad yes, i photograph myself almost naked to see if there are ever any changes.
I know i'm a bit thinner, but i'm still in the same size clothes mostly, i'm almost the same weight too. But thanks to these completely embarrassing pictures i can see the changes that my body has made. Or rather, that i have made to my body.
Proportionally the diagram above shows too much of a size difference, but the shape change is pretty spot on. My butt is definitely more pert. I have a much nice shape to my inner thighs and i have significantly reduced my saddle bags. You can see the fat i want to get rid of in the MRI. This area was a lot bigger, i suffer from very distinct additional fat cells in that area.
Today helped me continue on the reshaping journey. I ran 8.58m in 1:19:57 an average pace of 9:19. I'm really pleased with that. And i got negative splits as i managed to keep it slow at first. Its the longest i have run in a long time and i managed a 9:20 pace! I am training for a half marathon. I think i'm going to do the Lichfield one on May 1st so there is a bit of time to go, but id like to get to the double figure long runs pretty soon, so i can focus on making them faster. I want a sub 2 hour HM so that will require a (quick flip tabs to a pace calculator) 9:05 ave pace. My September HM where i was only 7 weeks in to my 13 week training schedule averaged at 9:58 so i feel its achievable.
