Awesome salad, made heaps so it's also my lunch today.

Treated myself to a new pair of running shoes as I think my current ones have close to 800km in them. I really like the ethics of Brooks as a company and I get the impression they are consciously trying to reduce their carbon footprint; plus if they're good enough for Chrissie Wellington they're sure going to be good enough for me :lol:

Legs are feeling surprisingly fine after yesterdays effort. Just fueling up before I head out on my long run for this week, depending on how I feel will probably be somewhere between 20-30km.

Just knocked up a nice little salad with some mixed salad greens, carrot, capsicum, kale and drizzled some mango & chili dressing over it :wink:

Brooks always has nice shoes. I like them because they seam to have more toe room then some of the brands but sometimes I find them a bit heavy.

These ones are 300g each shoe so they're not too bad, and like you say they have plenty of toe room :)

It's only 40km this week, so only about 25 miles mate. That's not really that much but the emphasis was on speed so I deliberately kept the distance on the lower side.

I'll be bringing it back up soon though, an 'average' week of marathon training for me should be somewhere between 60-80km but life, work and kids sometimes get in the way a little :roll:

I have decided that I will be changing my diet slightly from tomorrow, I am going to be fasting for at least one day out of each week and see how that affects my training. I love the concept of it and the health benefits it brings, not to mention the energy I derive from intelligently fasting throughout the course of the day :)


Image


Some things I am implementing from tomorrow:

** First thing every morning ~ cup of warm water, 1/2 squeezed lemon, aloe juice & apple cider vinegar. This will replace my morning coffee
** No breakfast
** Lunch will be based around a salad depending on hunger, energy requirements etc
** Juicing every day ~ carrot, apple, pomegranate, kale, goji and ginger will be the main ones for these next few weeks
** More snacks through the day, increased vegetable & fruit intake
** Final meal(s) before 7pm
** Bed by 10pm

First day nearly done and feeling great. I had a carrot, apple, pomegranate, kale, goji and ginger juice about 12pm and that's carried me through until the late afternoon.

For dinner I'm just going to mix up a packet of quinoa rice I found at our local supermarket with a freshly made kale salad, avocado and a yellow & red lentil curry I made up yesterday. Hoping to get out for a quick run for an hour or so later on after the kids are in bed, that's if the rain doesn't get any heavier :roll:

Just heading out for a morning run before work after having a few days off training.

Diet has been going well and I am feeling great as a result of juicing every day. Treated myself yesterday to a nice vege quaesadilla from a local restaurant that knows me well, they happily cater to all of my dietary requirements and look after me well. They know I like spicy foods so this time the chef made me up a hot salsa sauce with some jalapenos on the side ~ damn fine stuff 8)

Fasting, eh? You feel ok while doing this? I always find I get all messed up (read: disoriented, grouchy, etc.) when I don't feed myself regularly. Any trick you have?
