When you lose weight, where does the weight go?  

Posted by Pete McBreen Tue, 21 Apr 2015 21:46:12 GMT

It turns out that even some doctors do not know that the most of the weight (84%) is exhaled as CO2. And unfortunately “Physical activity as a weight loss strategy is […] easily foiled by relatively small quantities of excess food.”

MEC Race 2 Results  

Posted by Pete McBreen Wed, 15 Apr 2015 15:46:54 GMT

Neil was 5th overall in the 5K, Sierra was 87th. Due to this run being in nosehill park with an out up the steep hill and then back down the times are slower than flat races.

Race profile and splits from Neil’s watch, looks like the hill training is paying off.

1km - 4:20     39m Ascent
2km - 4:41     30m Ascent
3km - 4:43     27m Ascent   12m Descent
4km - 3:44     39m Descent
5km - 3:43     33m Descent
