2017-10-24 Training or at least doing something most days.

As I had to go into London on Friday, I figured, may as well use the opportunity to run to it from Waterloo and back. Well run is a big word for the speed, which I can't blame on the number of people in London. Just blame it on not having run enough for the last year.

But it was another 6km I may otherwise not have done.

Not having been in the Gym or CrossFit, I've at least picked that up as well.

Two weightlifting sessions so far this week. Notice-able absence, as my legs, arms and upper body are screaming.

But I realise I've missed that feeling.

I've been too "scared" to step on the scales. Which is stupid as I won't be able to check if I'm actually losing some weight. I know it's not about weight alone, but believe me, in this case it is about weight in the first instance.

So at least one more session this week in the UK and hopefully the sun in Palma de Mallorca will motivate me for another run while Lizzie is working.

Got my shoes for the MdS sorted. Brooks Beast 16 as they have a fabulous wide fit, and are very cushioned. They may even protect my feet in the desert.

Got food for trial from MyRaceKit. Opted for LyoFoods. Not sure about the kinds of food, but Noodles are high on the wishlist.

I am talking with an Irish Charity ToChildrenWithLove to fundraise for them.

That's it for now.
I'm keeping it short, so I won't take up your whole evening with my amazingly interesting stories.


  1. Like the idea of noodles. I have a wide selection to try over the next few weeks. The Mountain House foods still looks a good bet for me. Aiming for 1000 calories for each evening meal.

  2. On the runniest shoe front I finally after many years have found a shoes that suits my easily blistering feet. Brooks Cascadia 10 and 12 are the selection. Hopefully they'll do the trick out there but the signs are good so far.
