So this is my third training update and it’s become very clear because of the other things I’ve signed up to that I need to change the title of my updates to just training updates. Race for life is a very important race, of course it’s the one that pushed me to take control of my fitness but it’s also a very personal cause to me as I’ve explained before as my Grandfather lost his life to cancer.
I’ve had an incredibly busy week so far and my body is aching from it so yesterday was a rest day for me to try and get rid of some of the muscle pain. I’ve been running, done yoga and Pilates, used the sworkit app and done my favourite exercise of crunches which I’m paying for now. I’m currently using the c210k app pro for my running which I find incredibly useful.
I’m using the MyFitnessPal app which I find helps my biscuit craving, by looking at the figures on the app I can see that one biscuit is quite sufficient rather than the whole packed I would have previously eaten.
I’ve eaten some delicious food this past week, fish seems to have been the focus for most of my meals. The dish on the left is blackened Cajun salmon and the one on the right is river trout with brown rice, quinoa, green beans and kale.
Since my last update where I mentioned that I would be running the London Marathon for Save the Children in 2016 I have also signed up for Run or Dye which I will complete in October 2015, I was unable to attend the one closest to me in Oxford as I’m on a training course so I’ve decided to do the one in Derbyshire instead.
I’ve just recently registered to do parkrun in Leamington Spa which is a 5k run shown above, I think I’m going to alternate runs with David unless we can source a very cheap running pushchair (we should have kept the one we donated to charity last year).
My goal for this week is to find a new supportive sports bra as the one I’m wearing is now a little large and not as supportive. I’m also on the lookout for some weights as the ones we had in our garage are incredibly rusty and I don’t really want them in the house.
