Sorry didn't mean to be a debbie downer! I just don't want people to be misinformed. Yes, I know a lot of people that have the attitude, I ran x or I worked out for xx and now I can have this 600 calorie recovery shake (totally burying their efforts). I suppose it depends on who you're around. A lot of people overestimate how much they burn.

Be proud of your running, it takes a lot of perseverance to get to 30 min!
