So.. Week 2 is already upon us and I haven’t even had a chance to blog about Week 1!
Honestly, it wasn’t a great week for me because I was still recovering from a bout of laryngitis and despite going to bed every night hopeful I’d be well enough by the next morning to run, I really didn’t have the energy – or the ability to stop coughing for more than five minutes at a time – until Friday. I laced on my sneakers and took off for my first run in two weeks – 8kms later and I felt amazing. It was slower than usual, but I was really happy with it. I’m still so amazed that my body can just go out and run 8km on a whim if I want to.

On another note, I’m now 44 days in 50 Days No Sugar. Wow, I can’t believe it’s been this long. I won’t deny, there are still days where I’d love something sugary to eat but it’s rare and it’s pretty easy to resist now. I think I’ll keep going on minimising my sugar intake wherever possible after the 50 days are over. The benefits have been really worth this little experiment. I think it’s also helped me nail my nutrition through the first week of 12WBT too.
Now Week 2 is here, I might put my training goals out there to remain accountable.
Training:Monday: Cardio interval training (done)
Tuesday: Boxing Boot Camp
Wednesday: 8km Fartlek Run
Friday: 8km Run
Sunday: 16km Run
I want a throw a Bikram yoga session in there somewhere, but I’m not sure where I can fit it in with all my other non-training commitments this week, it might have to form part of my SSS.
Anyway, that’s it from me – thanks so much for reading!
