Running Club

Today is running club day again. And I so love it although I always run at the end of the group. I can feel I am improving and the main thing is that I enjoy it. And I meet people which is for me very important right now. In the intermediate group there are more men than women so that is always good to push you and who know what might happen. Maybe prince charming is hidden in the pack :)
I realise that I am slow starter and once I get going then my pace really picks up ... a bit like a diesel :) So now I have to work on speeding up at the beginning. Not too sure how to do that. But I feel good right now with all the exercising I am doing and feel so much more better about myself and feel more confident. Right now life is good!! Let enjoy the moment :)

Breakfast: Porridge oats, skimmed milk, sunflower seeds and choc whey protein
Snack: Apple
Lunch: Salad from the canteen salad bar. Dessert: Mango
Snack: 100gr yoghurt, blueberries, strawberries, redcurrants and vanilla whey protein
Pre-workout: banana and 2 slices of Dr Karg cheese and olive
Post workout: Banana protein shake
Dinner: Porridge like breakfast (too tired to cook now)
Drinks: 1 Cafe latte, 4L water and energy drink

Exercise: Runningclub 5 miles

don't worry about your speed for the time being mate, you need to focus on your running style to make sure you don't end up injuring yourself.

I've been running now around 2 years and still plod along at my own pace. I'd rather do that and enjoy it than push it too hard and end up in pain....

glad you're enjoying it all though :-)
