the results for the run are now up and I have to say I am shocked…….
I placed 100th out of 1780 people!!!!
I am really really proud of this result because a) I am a crap runner….i was never the fast one in school and never had the natural fitness of my friends….this really restricted me when it came to hockey in school….and b) I have done almost no running except maybe 1/2 long runs and a couple of 200-300metre sprints over the last two months….I have actually been concentrating on interval workouts and a lot of strength…..my olympic lifts are really coming along and I am really enjoying incorporating low reps and heavy weight techniques into my training….
In addition my diet is super clean at the moment…..high fat high protein low carb….
I think that this combination is making a big difference to my endurance and aerobic capacity!
Anyway point is I am DELIGHTED with this result….i reckon I could have been a bit faster, I got stuck behind people a few times…but that’s my competitive side coming out!
Working on a few recipes and meals plans this weekend so plenty to come!!
