Oh I -was- naughty today.

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)

B - greek yogurt with 1 scoop, fruit compote and grape nuts
S -"lunchies" - apricot and yogurt bar
L - salad; lettuce, sweet pepper, cherry tomatoes, pomegranate seeds, spring onions, capers and chicken breast

S - 1 scoop in semi-skimmed milk
D - beef chilli with couscous, peas and sweetcorn with grated organic cheddar

  1. Well done on your super speedy run!

    Thanks so much for the advice on my blog, it was really helpful, I did bring it up and it's commonpractice because it's a management position.. I did find out that it will only be this frequent during my training.. the head office want me to learn how to open up without paying me... Not sure how they worked that out, but they are the same people who want me in charge next week while the managers on holiday even though I've only worked two shifts so far!! It's a bit nuts! It doesn't seem so bad if it's not as often as every day so hopefully it will work out!

  2. Sounds like there might be a bit of give and take with the job; well, hopefully there will be a bit of give on their side too as well as the take so far ;o) Hope you're enjoying it!
