How to lose weight like a boss

There are many schemes, diets, training plans and all other kind of stuff out there which are complex, hard to follow, expensive or simply stupid (apples are bad for you WTF?!). If you want to lose 15kg in half a year like I did, follow these no nonsense tips which have worked for me. No jojo effect, simple to implement, no extra money needed, you're welcome. Ok admittedly what you need is time and commitment, but probably you already showed that to the wrong things to get yourself where you are now and you searched for content like this post to change, so again, you're welcome.

Race strategy Fingal 10K 2015 and my performance in the Dublin race series

 

19.07.2015 was the date for me and 4.000 other runners (12.000 If I believe the chip times on the website, the Irish independent awaited 4.000 runners which seems closer to the truth for me) to go out in swords and run the Fingal 10k 2015. The winner took the crown with 29:44 in the male section run by Mick Closisey and a 34:11 run by Maria McCambridge as the first woman to get over the line. This year I was not as close as last year to the winning bunch with a time of 44:52. I ran what I aimed for and you can check my bib number 409 at the Fingal 10K results.

What you should consider if you travel to the Dublin marathon

I've run the Dublin marathon in 2013 in 3:58. Here are some tips for you if you consider to go Eire to run your next marathon. Expect to be beaten by an Irish dick... at least if you ran the Dublin marathon in the eighties. Current track record in the male category stands at 2:08:33 by the Kenyan Geoffrey Ndungu and at 2:26:13 for the ladies held by Russian madame Tatyana Aryasova. You will most likely face temperatures between 8 - 12 degrees and a drizzle somewhere along the course.

Garmin Forerunner 220 vs Nike+ App on phone

I got the Forerunner 220 from my girlfriend for my birthday in 2014 and ran two marathons with it. I am very happy with it and with the addition of the heart rate monitor. If you are considering to buy one and you are currently using your Nike+ iPhone app only buy it when you are trying to get seriously into running or you have training runs which go beyond 1.5 hours.

Irish Runner 5 mile - My Experience

After running the Vienna marathon this year I took two months of running in May and June. Main focus of my training was on weightlifting and I also could not face running any more. Kind of had fallen out of love with it. Still I had booked myself in for the entire Dublin race series and on 27.06.2015 it was time for the Irish Runner 5 mile. Last year I finished in 32:42 and this year in 37:01.
