I stayed the same. Not all that surprised to be honest. While food wise yesterday I was perfect, the amount was probably a bit too much and hence no loss. I didn’t run yesterday. I just had a walk and I think what I am learning is that I need to push myself more than that.
This morning I got up early and dressed to run but it was pouring with rain. So I popped down to run on the treadmill. I much prefer to run outside with Millie but neither of us are fans of running in the rain and so Millie stayed curled up on her couch.
Today I was good food-wise. I did not eat any carbs which I have done in the past knowing I have a fast run to do with the cross-country boys. So we set out with about 20 teenage boys and I didn’t feel too bad. It was lightly drizzling and when we got half way it really started to rain but it was actually quite refreshing, I preferred that to the heat we have had for the past few runs with the Cross-country boys. Over the past 5 weeks we have had extra boys run with us for winter sport fitness. 5 weeks ago I cleaned them up (ran a lot faster and stronger than they did), tonight I noticed some had definitely got faster and stronger and I struggled to keep up with them, it is amazing the progress you make by turning up and doing the hard yards. I told the ones who I struggled to keep up with that I was impressed with their improvement which made them smile. So I managed to run twice today and given I have not cheated I hope that is a recipe for success in the morning.
