I was pleased with the amount of running I got done last week, 4 runs including a long run before work, an effort session and two easier runs = 26 miles. I didn’t do a Strength session through the week as I opted for rear or running instead but I’ll get one done later today.
Here’s what I did:
Tue: 6.3M incl 3x1M effort
Wed: 3.2M wi FG
Thu: 10M & 4M walk into town and back
Sat: 6.5M wi FG
Sun: Bike & Strength
Next week I’m away to Aberdeen from Wednesday to work from there and visit my Dad so I’ve rejigged things around this, and might rest / walk on Saturday instead of train, but we’ll see.
Mon: 5M Hill Run / Kelvingrove stairs
Tue: 5k wi FG
Wed: Bike & Strength
Fri: 5M Run
Sat: Strength or walk
Sun: 10-15M wi Jen & Glynis
Nice thing about being up there is that I’ve got in touch with Jen who lives in Ellon and connected with me via my Facebook pages years ago. I’ll do 10-15 miles with her and Glynis next Sunday early, in Ellon. 👍🏻
They’re training for an ultra, and Glynis is amazing me with her current streak of over 500 days running! (I couldn’t / wouldn’t be able to do that!)
I’ve been busy making some plans for the coming months, and hopefully it’ll mean that I keep on track with my training to keep me going.
Lean mass down 3.4lbs since the start of the year.
I’ve had set things for breakfast and lunch and still had the odd small treat. Eating little and often, fuelling my exercise. I’ve also cut out coffee but I doubt that makes much difference.
Here’s what I’ve been eating roughly:
Breakfast: fruit & nut cereal, blueberries, fayeh 0% fat Greek yogurt, milk and a glass of pineapple juice (fuel & sustenance) Snack: protein yoghurt with berries and granola (plenty protein)
Lunch: chicken, rice and beetroot and a few pop chips. (Energy in smallish portions) Snack: protein bar
Dinner: whatever …
Snack: a bit of chocolate or ice cream if I’ve exercised that day Water first thing and throughout the day.
I have to admit Thursday was a bit of a big long day, 10 miles running and 4 miles walking = about 25-30k steps and it left me feeling pretty hungry the next day.
Here’s the difference in 5 months:
2 April: 139.6lbs / 18% body fat
25.2lbs body fat / 114.4lbs other
109.5lbs lbm / 78.4% lbm
76cm / 101cm / 46% wth ratio
9 Aug: 135.9lbs / 17.5% body fat
23.8lbs body fat / 112.1lbs other
107.3lbs lbm / 78.9% lbm
74cm / 98cm / 44% wth ratio
Heading in the right direction.
