Today I am taking a day off training. Now my hip is in pain again, I am very frustrated. I was hoping to do the cross country race today with the tri club. Oh well, I need to be positive and not get “non training guilt”. On the plus side feeling stronger after my strength sessions and my weight is dropping consistently in line with my plan of 1/2 a kilo a week (1.1lb in old money). I could do this much faster, but I want to ensure that I am fuelling my workouts properly and maximising my sessions.
My diet is good though and consists of porridge in the morning. A banana after training mid morning, scrambled eggs, chopped tomatoes, sunflower rye bread for lunch, apple in the afternoon, then usually Ryvita’s, tuna/sardines, homemade low fat houmous, celery, carrots and cous cous. Evening meal is usually broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, carrots, potatoes, Brussel sprouts – all steamed and a piece of fish or chicken/lean pork grilled in my George Foreman. Well that’s a typical day. I also take Vit B strong, Thiamine and tblsp of flaxseed oil.
