Keep on moving; don't stop!

Today is cardio day!  Little swim in the lunch break and a little run after school.  I'll aim for a fast 408m in the pool and a fast 5km on the road later.  There's not really time to do endurance runs/swims etc. before the next triathlon and they're pretty much the only disciplines I can make a difference to my overall time with at the moment.  But more on that to come :o)

Will report in on swim and run later...(and think about an evening snack to top up the kcals before bed)

...swim was pretty good; tumble-turns take a whole second of length times it seems and I'm doing rubbish ones at the moment, so it might improve :o)  And the run, apart from getting rained on at the start felt really strong!  Not massively quick (5.2km at 10.7kph) but I felt great (comparatively) and not totally dead at about 4km.  I could definitely have gone faster, which is very encouraging.  Maybe I should have gone further, but I ran out of route and I was thirsty!  I'm pretty sure that getting back to the gym is helping me on the strength side to make running a bit "easier".

I've evolved part of my recipe for Eggs Florentine; basically quadrupled the amount of spinach, doubled the eggs, doubled the butter and added seasoning.  What a difference!  It's soooo nice like this!  We had it tonight with baked tilapia and boiled new potatoes:-

B - greek yogurt with 1 scoop MP Max, blueberries, Maca root and Grape Nuts
S -Starbucks skinny latte
S - EAT Natural, cranberries, apricot and yogurt bar
L - salad; lettuce, cherry tomatoes, sweet pepper, celery, capers Food Doctor herb boost and chicken breast
S - 1 scoop MP Max in skimmed milk
S - carrot and Waitrose houmous and pistachios
S - 1 scoop MP Max in semi-skimmed milk
D - baked tilapia fillet with new potatoes and egg florentine
S - Tim's Dairy yogurt (toffee)
