many small mistakes... but they add up food
Snack: spoon of peanut butter (to have something to fuel my workout... I eat breakfast after... think this is OK)
Breakfast: bowl of porridge
Snack: single serve nutella thingy
Lunch: moutain bread wrap - ham, lettuce, tomato, cheese
Snack: another single serve nutella thingy... starting to regret buying them... at least I'm leaving them at work
Dinner: bowl of vegetable soup and some skinless roast chicken breast
Should've packed fruit and/or yogurt to take with me to work and had that instead of nutella... they are only small things but they are sooo high in kilojoules - almost 500 for one! I could have had a whole mountain bread apple strudel thing for that... drinks
bout 2.5L water
1 coffee (made with water and just a splash of milk)
1 small skinny latte... didn't need it... someone else had one and it smelled delicious... gah... at least I got a small
2 hot chocolates made with the WW drinking chocolate ... should've stopped at one...
Too many hot drinks... all those splashes of milk add up... hmmmexercise
mostly running/jogging with my training group ... ran way ahead of everyone else for the 1.8ish km's we went
... was a good pace, I was breathing hard when I got there... then jogged around while I waited for everyone else to get there ... no problem... feels good to be one of the fittest in the group... of the regulars there's only 2 guys that've been coming longer than me who are fitter... I know it's not a competition or anything but I do get a tweensy bit of a smug satisfaction from being the fittest when the two guys don't show up... or the only one that can keep up with them (or almost keep up with them) when they do... does that make me a bad person? lol ... I feel a bit guilty for feeling like that...
Anyway, also jogged the 1.8km's back, I did it slow with the rest of the group... bit worried about my calves... more on that in the next section... but that barely got my heart rate up... felt awesome... like I could've kept going and going and going... other
Yeah my calves are a bit twingey ... I think I jumped into speedwork too soon on Saturday... then probably did too much on Monday... or too much on my feet anyway... then the long jog that was tough going on Tuesday really did it... they aren't REALLY sore or anything but on the advice of the trainer and several articles I will take a break from jogging/running for a few days... frustrating... I really want to tip those scales over into the 60's NOW and I know I could help that out a lot by jogging... but on the other hand... if I kept pushing and did a serious injury and had to stop running for any significant length of time I would really be devastated... also I'm entering the 8.5km funrun on the 14th and I want to be feeling fine for that... gonna be hard enough for me without nursing sore legs!
Slept only about 5 hours from Tuesday night... oops...
