I started the Kaia BRIK on January 6th. We did weights and measurements and then a fitness test.
Today we did the week 3 checkup and here’s my status:
Fitness test at week 1: 13 minutes and 11 seconds with many modifications
Fitness test at week 3: 9:37 seconds with fewer modifications.
Weight: Down 8 pounds from 233 to 225
Waist/Hips: down 1 inch from 51 to 50
Bust: down 1 inch from 46 to 45
Thigh: stayed the same – 26
And yesterday I ran with the I KAN RUN group at Kaia. We went to the local high school and went around the track. Run the straight parts, walk/jog/recover the curved bits. At the end, I was running halfway around the track.
It felt crazy and wild to be out there at 5:30 in the morning, in 14 degree cold with the other crazy runners, gasping for breath. I do believe, though, that as a runner, I run for the pleasure of stopping.
