1. Marathon Nutrition Book:
I started reading “The New Rules of Marathon Nutrition” by Matt Fitzgerald a few days ago. The author is a really well respected sports nutritionist.
A core message is increase carbs and focus on the quality of your food. This all helps with avoiding the “wall”….so far so good!Â Will report back after I have finished it.
2. Recipes! I am planning to cook a dairy free lasagna on Sunday after the V Adventure Race. I am going to adapt it from an Oh She GlowsÂ but will add meat to satisfy the man. I think after my race and his XC MT Bike action a carb fest will be in order.
3. Country Road: Â I want this coat so bad….well actually I want everything on this page so bad.
It’s such a shame winter gear is so pricey and winter is so short here in Perth. I say winter….it’s still 16 degrees today. I promise it looks way better in person!
4. I rented Downton Abbey Series 3 from the library – I am not ashamed to admit I love the library – and it’s really fun. A bit like Dynasty or something but the period drama aspect means I feel less trashy. I can’t stand Bates though…….he breaks my heart with his “woe is me” act. I won’t ruin anything and I am not finished it yet but I cannot believe they killed off……….
5. Long weekends! It’s a bank holiday weekend here so we have Monday off! The weather is getting colder so we plan on doing our respective sports – running and MT biking – and not much else!
What are you loving this Friday? Any races lined up? Can you help me find a cheaper coat????
