week 28 commences

as the rest of the world gears up for Christmas, I commence the first of two 75km weeks. Thanks to the timing of Australia Day Ultra, my peak training weekends are Christmas and New Year… my taper starts on Jan 2nd!

27 weeks done, some awesome events and memories along the way, and now just 5 more weeks before the big 100k…

food

after giving it a good go, I’ve more or less given up on My Fitness Pal for the last time. Great app, great idea, great tool, but just one more thing I don’t have time for lol.

There have been quite a few changes on the food front for me in recent times; I restarted Lite n Easy for a while, for breakfast and lunch, however I have dropped back to using it just for weekday lunches. Breakfast is usually oats or muesli, toast with peanut butter and a coffee.

Dinners, now the warm weather has kicked in, have been salad (rocket, spinach, cherry tomatoes and a little olive oil), a protein of some kind (steak, lamb, pork, salmon, chicken, omelette etc.) and sometimes broccolini and/or asparagus. Quick, easy, healthy and fresh!

training

4k tempo-ish run #W28D2 #ADU2017 #100k #LetsGoHoka #TimeToFly

First run after 6 inch and the legs and body felt battered and tired. Feet sore, and energy a bit flat. So wasn't looking forward to it, but was rewarded with a reasonably pleasant run with a little bit of pace in the middle. Couple of big weeks now before starting the taper. This is where the hard work gets harder lol
