Sorry for the delay in posting here. A bit of a mixed bag ahead of my 10K race this coming Monday. The good news is that I’ve almost reach my goals vis-à-vis weight/body fat. Almost two months ago I was 64kgs, 18.9% body fat and 77cm around the middle and today I was 57kgs, 72cms around the guts and 13.6% body fat. Pretty impressive if I do say so myself, and it really should be interesting to see how I race at these new stats!
As for the training it has been going well too. I’ve been able to do most of the sessions coach “Tinman” has set me and the double sessions have gotten me pretty fit, and thin. My foot is still giving me trouble, hurting during and after runs, but I’m having the occasional day pain free, which is an improvement.
Last week I couldn’t do a full schedule of running as I injured myself further (Ran into a hip high steel pole that was there to block car traffic going onto the walking/running path.) The impact knocked me to the ground and boy did it hurt! The reason I didn’t see it was because I’m stupid and it was at night. It created a big painful bruise in my right quad muscle that has been changing color all week. But now it’s almost healed and I’m good to go!
Fingers crossed for a PB on Monday the 29th , I’ll post again before that. Below is a photo of my weight taken this afternoon. It was after a 14km run and a bath/sauna but amazing just the same, as I don’t remember ever being this light! I was 59kgs at 16 years old! Also I'll add a photo taken last Sunday of me and a few students as it shows how skinny I've gotten!
