OO- The stat that skews it is that you may recall that over Jan/Feb I made a concerted effort to get my weight to its lowest in 20 years as around 10'12. I'm now about 11'10. That low weight was never sustainable post mara and my usual go to weight is just under 11'5, usually around 11,3 so from that i'm only 5-7lb over weight, but I am still 10-12lb over where I left off.
That comes from 8 weeks of literally no exercise March-May and not only continuing to eat the same food as previous but also being locked down so drinking more, which leads to eating more crap and so on. It's all a bit of a vicious circle.
The odd part is that from start of June my training time has increased significantly to about 5 hours a week but the weight hasn't changed.
Our David Lloyd opens next Monday, there's talk of the whole pool being laned and you book a slot, so no kids/family splash time. I am not keen on it all as sitting in a spin studio, even at half capacity with aircon blowing!
Decent long run Ian. The only thing to watch is that you don't peak when there's no races.
Solid mlr, Gul.
Well done on getting out SBD. If I can get back to just under 11,5 SBD then that'll do me until i'm thinking of racing. Now I have started a bit more running it is drifting down. Was 11'9 this morning and bodyfat is down 1% on where it was, but still up 3%.
I see Boston Lincs mara is one of the few still standing and is pretty intent on going ahead. Reading the news this morning about the likely next wave from October, it starts making London next year look tricky (and many other aspects of normal social life).
Off out shortly for a repeat of Sundays 30m run. Just consolidating before moving forwards. I suddenly have a lot more time now we aren't having to play teachers as well as work full-time, plus my work reduces a bit when school hols kick in.
