Time is a valuable commodity to us all and I have enjoyed this past twelve months making good use of it for the first time ever in my life, What I have noticed over the past few weeks is how it seems to be running out for me at the moment and that also means in the next three months as well as the training for the London Marathon ramps up. I have noticed that I am getting more tired these past two weeks and I have less time to sit and relax with a little me time.
Today I am writing this blog feeling very ill I think its to do with my eating to much protein not enough carbs? I have smelly breath when I burp at the moment which is a sign, I need to find information or help to correct this problem, who'd of thought me being ill because I'm healthy and exercising and doing the right thing I think this problem is caused by the extra training I'm now doing for the London Marathon so I need to adjust what and how I eat to correct this problem.
Training for last week was good with the exception of Saturday when I needed to do an hour's cardio boxing on the x-box as I explained earlier having problems with tiredness and my shift pattern by the time I got up got myself sorted I was unable to get myself in a position to do the hour's training and then do a full shift at work. I could have lied and just made up that I had done this training but that would have meant letting myself down and that will never happen anymore in my life. I will promise to make this one hour session up in the future as I have done in my training for the Great South Run if I missed a training session I would always make it up, it will be slightly harder now but not impossible. My body is telling me to adjust and I need to listen and make sure that that I get the basic's right that's Fuel and Hydration for my body the correct amount of training and good quality rest all to be done around my normal working and living environment. My training record can be seen on this link http://connect.garmin.com/activities as always.
I had a fasting blood test for my Diabetes this week more details to follow in a couple of weeks when I get the results but I was weighed and had my height measured I Know I said no weights till Brighton weekend but the scales at the doctor's surgery had me at 95kg with shoes off came home and weighed myself not that light but good enough plus they were a midweek weigh in not a normal Sunday weigh in. They are the official weight on my records now, I have grown by one inch to 5ft 8in maybe just standing taller and prouder but its a good thing. My BMI has come down by about 17 points as well from my heaviest. Great strides and show's the value of patience and perseverance.
