Last week was a good 3 day week at work, and I got a good amount of training (and eating) in too.
4 runs totalling around 36 miles, 2 strength sessions, a few walks and 2 rest days.
Saturday was a good coaching run with one of my clients who is running her third marathon in London in a few weeks time. I’ve taught her to run to her HR and she’s really liking it. She’ll do really well in the marathon, I’m sure of it.
I was going to be running with her on Monday 13th for about an hour, but I thought it might be more beneficial for her if I just ran with her on her long run this weekend instead. We covered a lot of topics on the 3.5 hour run and it was good to be able to help her.
Food has been good the last week too (except for the odd Easter egg and Mars bar) – the majority of my food has been good.
I was having issues where I was forgetting to eat (oops) because I was busy at work … but I’ve mixed it up a bit and am eating more regularly and taking a bit more care about it.
Here’s the plan for daily food next week:
– Berry, yoghurt and nut breakfast & coffee
– Banana and peanut butter shake incl oats
– Quiche and salad for lunch
– Cheese and tomatoes or a yoghurt & berries
– fish or meat and veg for dinner
Plenty of water.
We had a tasty homemade lasagne for dinner tonight – about 6 veg portions!
Here’s the plan for training for next week:
Mon: Deadlift strength
Tue: 5M run
Wed: Squat strength
Thu: 7M run
Fri: Deadlift strength
Sat: 13.1M run
