A jog to/from parkrun duties this morning and a couple of reflective miles walked after. Up to 45 runs [I have been doing far more parkruns in the last 6 months than I usually do – usually on volunteering duty] but I will miss my 50 t-shirt in under 5 years by a few weeks now. No matter, I’ll aim for before the 5th anniversary of Wanstead Flats.
On those scales today and I’ll admit I am low level annoyed to have put on 4 lbs. Only low level as I suspected and anticipated the gain given the recovery weeks since the New Year; and that the first two weeks of 2016 were in some ways [running wise at least] the equivalent of my Xmas break.
I simply now have to get a handle on my nutrition asap. The lighter I am the better chance I have to good-for-age for a London Marathon place at the marathon in May, but more importantly for this Summer, the lighter I am the less strain on the joints during the multi-day marathoning.
I will therefore be 1 stone less come the end of May. Might actually be my biggest challenge this year? Certainly it will see me at my lowest weight in 20 years.
