Got up at 5am on Friday morning. I really couldn’t sleep. Spent my spare hour reading blogs online! Discovering runeatrepeat.com last week was what got me thinking about keeping a log of my food online in a blog as well as tracking my training. I’m hoping that I can look back and see why training has gone well or not so well dependant upon my eating habits and days before a run/race. I’ve now also gotten addicted to mealsandmiles.com I love the way both Monica and Meghann write and it’s great to feel that even if it’s all the way over in America, 1000s of miles away, there are a couple of other girls my age who love running and want to eat well and enjoy life!
|Graze box – The Firecracker – had this just before school as my belly was still grumbling! This with a glass of water kept me satisfied till break!|
Every Friday we have ‘Treats’. There used to be lots of us at school that participated but now it is just the Psychology department, one business studies teacher and Me. Each week one member of the Treats group brings in goodies for everybody at breaktime and we all sit down in the staff room and have a natter. This week it was Bernadette’s turn. I didn’t feel comfortable enough yet photographing what I ate and explaining to the Treats group about the blog, but I was still conscious about what I ate and just had one tiny half white roll with a piece of chicken tikka and cheese inside, two cherry tomatoes with houmous, 1/6th of a small pork pie and one small coconut bun with a small glass of blueberry juice. On Fridays I don’t have anything for lunch as I’m usually full from Treats until the end of the day. Today was no different.
Rest day running wise for me on Friday, although I did spend an hour leading ponies at Riding Club after school tonight. Running outside with the ponies is actually what probably made me so hungry for tea!
Hoping to get to ParkRun tomorrow with Dan. He’s quite enthusiastic which is good.
