Back on Track!

This week’s Training Plan in the lead up for the Sutherland Half Marathon & Gala Day races (I’m competing in the 5km):

Monday: Nil (Recovering from the weekend)

My Eats today!

Breakfast: I woke up this morning to find that the Pumpkin cake/pudding that I had carefully hidden last night, had been found ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Only 2 pieces left so I had that with an Apple & Mandarin.

Lunch: Parfait (2 Weet-Bix crushed + Yoplait French Vanilla Yogurt) & 2 slices of Toast (with PB)

Workout: I started off my workout this afternoon with 45mins on the bike followed by some light weights (Shoulder Press 15 reps x2, Side Raise 15 reps x2, Bicep Curls 20 reps x2). I was feeling really great after this and decided to do another 45mins on the bike!

Snack-attack before Dinner:
