I thought I would do a quick update every couple of weeks on how my training for my first adventurethon is progressing for anyone who is interested.
So overall I am happy with where I am at and the body seems to be holding up OK. I have ordered a new pair of running shoes that I am hoping will help me out with some calf and shin pain. It is only niggling and I have really been hitting it with the roller and stretching. After a rest from running it seems to recover OK at the moment. My biggest focus now is on getting the diet on track. While I have lost just over 1kg in the last two weeks, it really should be more considering the exercise I am doing, and I know my chocolate addiction is to blame. Damn you chocolate!! My goal is to lose 5kg in the next 5 weeks. I usually find that if I increase my water intake (leave a jug on the bench), increase my greens (some at every meal), and ban all chocolate, I find that I am able to drop the weight. I eat carbs at breakfast, but then don’t eat a lot of simple carbs during the rest of the day.
If you know any good links for a fitness journey of any kind, for weight loss, or regarding nutrition please feel free to leave a link in the comments section. That would be great!!
