I got home from work, got changed and went for a run! Physio said last time I saw her that I wasn't to run (I honestly think she thinks my butt hurts a lot more than it does, despite me insisting that I'm only "aware" of it and that there is no actual pain any more at all). I was supposed to see her last Thursday, but we had to postpone to this Thursday. I can't wait another week to start running (or not) in advance of the second Thames Turbo sprint triathlon on bank holiday Monday so I absolutely had to run today.
And it was fine. 4.073km in 00:22:15; that's 10.91 kilometres per hour! Fastest I've ever run! And everything feels fine; well, OK, my legs are a bit achey still from Sunday but that's another matter.
And I'm back on track with the macro-nutrients today as well :o)
I had a very pretty breakfast of the usual greek yogurt with bits in this morning:-
And a slightly indulgent dinner of beef chilli with couscous and veg with grated cheese on top:-
Little bit under for today, and low on (good) fat, so might have to find another snack later... maybe involving peanut butter.
...OK, so it ended up being a mini Babybel and some pistachios :o)
