Next week, many people will be starting their weight loss journey in earnest. Some will take up running as part of this process and this is great for your mental and physical health.
Running in isolation, though, no matter how much you do, will not achieve much weight loss, as these pictures prove.
The photos at the top were taken today after a year of reduced exercise and eating plentifully whenever hungry. No calorie counting or restriction and much less exercise than last year.

The photo at the bottom was taken at the end of my 7 day run along the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path (186 miles, 30,000 feet of climbing). The end of several years of endurance training. Supposedly burning 6000 plus calories on many days and really not eating that much.

Do it now before the New Year’s nonsense begins – soon you will be engulfed in confusion and not know who to trust. Look at again at the photographic evidence and judge for yourself who to believe.
