This morning's recovery run was a breakthrough in recent times. Odd really, recovery runs aren't supposed to be "breakthrough session"s, but it was because of the way I ran it. For the first run in a while, I actually ran properly easy. Heart rate well under my first fuel change point from 100% fat to small amounts of carb. So I'm really happy about that. Having struggled to run gently enough for a little while, due to lack of practice, this is a very positive sign. The other positive sign is that I'm starting to feel a bit stronger. And, having managed to lay off the wine pretty well, my excess flab is starting to shift too.
All run sessions complete. All gym sessions done. No "giving in" to easy higher-carb food. One, sensible couple of glasses of wine on one night only.
Consistency is paying off!
I love reading your blog. I love how you've totally figured out your body and what works for it. I'm still testing, trying, experimenting. Eating meat every day for protein doesn't agree with me ethically yet beans make me bloated and as much as I love eggs I can't eat more than 2-3 a day. Been eating more quinoa again and need to just sit down and re-learn some nutrition basics, I think...ReplyDelete
