I never knew that! Thank you, I just told a newbie mate whos training for a HM and has his forst five mile race in a couple of weeks. when my distances get further and Im booked onto some park runs/races I'll xtart without music, im just worried the constant sound of my breathlessness will put me off!!!
Do you think maybe running without music would help you get a better natural rhythm going to your breathing (which you said you were having problems with) ? Just a thought.
Eat more, and good stuff, at lunch on a Friday and you won't be so tempted to stuff yourself with bad food in the evening?
Ya its good
Why protein powder in your porridge?
Re Protein powder in the porridge, I always had porridge with sugar, having it this way does away with sugar and also makes it more filling!
Breakfast 1 wholemeal muffin with 2 bacon medalions.
Lunch - Chicken salad
Dinner Chicken stir fried with peppers/muchrooms/ courgette onion served with veg.
Also had 4 bottles of Stella.
No running but did a 5.5mile walk.
Breakfast- Porridge with half scoop of protein
Lunch Chicken stir fried with peppers/ mushrooms/ onion/peppers served with veg and sweet potato wedges.
Dinner- small portion of whole grain pasta in a spicy peperoni sauce ( was making this ready for this weeks lunches at work.
Was hoping to do a run tonight but knees still feel a little sore, ( is this normal?)
Hoping resting up today will have me ready for tomorrow.
Thanks for all the feedback comments
Where did you hear protein powder fills you up more? And if you don't want to use sugar (can't see why you would anyway with porridge), you can use honey to sweeten it, which is massively less caustic than protein powder. And cheaper. Significantly less calories in honey too.
I havent heard it , just when I have porridge plain, or with Powder, I find it more filling with the powder. Will give hiney a try though, thanks.
Also I did read that its good to get protein in every meal, so having that if I'm not eating eggs etc is another bonus.
Breakfast 9 am Shredded wheat
Lunch 1pm - Grilled chicken , bananna
Dinner 6pm stir fried chicken, in discovery spices, mushrooms, half a pepper 1/4 onion in 2 wholegrain tortillas.
Will be doing the 2 mile run a little later, (under the cover of darkness lol)
Breakfast - Porridge with half scoop protein
Lunch - chicken breast,Banana, apple Protein shake.
Dinner - Chicken , 1/4 onion, half a pepper, few mushrooms in 2 x wholemeal tortillas.
Breakfast - Porridge half scoop of protein
Lunch -Chicken Salad, Banana
Snack protein shake,
Dinner - Weight Watchers Chicken Lasagne ( very nice)
Just weighed in, 12'3 finally broke the 1st barrier
Food has been good last few days, no real slip ups ( 2 choc biscuits yesterday aside!)
Going to start the running again Sunday, this week my knee felt odd, a slight pain on side of knee cap and a little pain below knee cap, so havent done any running this week.
All I have done excercise wise is my press ups app and 1x 4mile walk, also doing a 4 mile walk today.
i was 22st 5lbs and now 14st 7lbs...last it in a year and have maintained it for a year...nnow entering phase two of loosing ...cant help with running advice as only been yomping myself since february ....but the weight loss was via a food combining diet very similar to to the new slimming world extra easy plan...which is essentially cut fats to the absolute minumum ..cut processed food and sugars and restrict cereals and breads...otherwise lean meat,fish,poultry,pasta.potatoes,rice,fruits and veg are all free so no weighing or counting and very easy to 'live' while doing it ...best of luck
