LilDragons Training Journal

#1 Postby LilDragon » Sat Dec 31, 2011 4:19 pm

Very new to this! Vegetarian for a year, and Vegan for the last month and sticking to it!

New to "proper" fitness as well, play a lot of football (soccer) and cricket. My new goal is to run a 1/2 marathon (or 2 in 2012), at least 2 full marathons in 2013 and then a 50 mile ultramarathon.

Main reasons for turning vegan (high raw) was because of health reasons and the double standards of saying "ah how cutre/ nice" to one animal and then devouring another, just plain wrong.

My current health stats are:
Male, 21, Height: 5"5, Weight: 50kg (did a massive juice fast and lost 20kg of fat and water)

My goal is to get to 60kg by mid 2012 in muscle and be able to get faster and run longer! A six pack would be nice as well :D

My journal for today (Saturday 31st December 2011) was:

meal 1: 6 bananas (medium size), soy milk, and wheatgrass powder blended into a smoothie.
meal 2: Lentil soup with rice and steamed brocolli
meal 3: Made too much for lunch so had the same for dinner! Lentil soup with rice and steamed brocolli

Snacks: Apple juice, apple, orange juice (500ml), 2 oranges.

Jogging - 10km (would have times this but forgot my watch)
15 push ups, Yoga, Bicep curls (3kg weight (building up slowly!) 200 times)
1km sprint on an exercise bike!

Is this what the training journal is supposed to be like? 1st time, only joined today!

Happy New Year all :D

My journal for today (4th January) was:

meal 1: 5 bananas (medium size), 1/2 inch of ginger and rice milkblended into a smoothie
meal 2: Sweet Potato Falafel and salad.
meal 3: Brocolli, carrots stir fry and brown rice

Snacks: A green machine smoothie for starbucks (not sure if avaiable in the US) and a berry blast smoothie later.

Very busy at work so dont get time to go on long runs, but my plan is to go "heavy" on the weekends cardio wise and focus on bulking up slowly during weekdays with a bit of cardio.

My journal for today (5th January) was:

meal 1: 5 bananas (medium size) blended with apple juice and cinnamon
meal 2: Sweet Potato Falafel and salad. (Loved the taste so much yesterday had to buy it again!)
meal 3: Moong beans soup and vegetable rice (carrots, green beans, sweet corn and peas)

Snacks: Just loads of water! SO bust at work didnt get time to eat!

Managed to do 5km run after work but not much else. Now back to writing reports feeling renergized after the run :)

Any tips of how my diet/ traning can be improved? I keep it rather spontaneous rather than a set plan but have a rough idea each day of what I want to do...

11th January

meal 1: 6 bananas (medium size) and apple juice smoothies
meal 2: tofu salad (lettuce, sea weed, sesame seeds, edame beans, green beans, bell pepper) and buckwheat noodles.
meal 3: chickpea curry and vegetable rice
Snacks: green machine smoothie from starbucks (not promoting them but incase anyone wants to try, its really nice)

Jogging - 30mins, power walk for about 30mins and then a 2km cycle after work.

Were having a diet/ healthy competition at work, see who can improve the most, I'm the only one of the real healthy plan so can't wait to disprove their thoughts on veganism by showing my results.

Dude I love all the banana damage you are doing, right on brother!

If you are thinking about doing half marathons / marathons this year head on over to www.nomeatathlete.com - we have veg-specific roadmap guides for running your first half marathon and full marathon. If you can handle 7km runs right now you will probably need about 12 weeks to train for a half marathon. Rock on!

Hi! Yes im going to try and do 2 1/2 marathons this year or 3. Thanks for the website, i read it occasionally but will get the guide there to help out, plus I actually signed up to your blog a while back and it was one of the things that got me into running (I used to think it was boring)! Keep up the great work!

11th January

meal 1: 5 bananas (medium size) and soy milk smoothie
meal 2: quinoa and passionfruit fruit pot sort of thing with soy yoghurt and a avacado/ chickpea/ mumus/ salad wrap (with wholemeal flat bread)
meal 3: havent eaten yet but will be roast aubergines with brocolli and rice.
Snacks: Just lots of water!

Jogging - 30mins.
Feel too sleepy to do any more, rather than do any damage will save up energy for a big weekend workout hopefully!
