Re-run of last year's thread for anybody doing any 2012 iron distance race
Good weight loss indeed.
I'm back inthe gym, nadhave been for a month or two, after 3+ years away, and it;s tedious. But just concentrating on general overall strenght and flexibility, nothing too structured.
Gym work is supplemented by regular running, and the odd bike abd MTB, and will remain like this over winter. Longer bike rides will start in the spring.
very strict diet
No dairy, grain, carbs or fat.
lots of lean meat/fish and fresh veg/salad/fruit
Well Done, great weight loss. I wish I had your resolve, I can manage the lots of lean meat/fish and fresh veg/salad and fruit (all yummy), but I can resist having lots of dairy, carbs and fat with them
My training is pretty pretty low key at the moment. I will start proper structured training after Christmas. I'm just doing the odd bike ride for fun (definietly NO turbo) and still trying to finally "crack" swimming (why is it so hard for me ).
The only thing I'm doing proper training for is running. For my birthday Mr Plodder got me a VO2 max test, and I am following the programme they set me from that.
It came as no surprise to me that my aerobic base was great (should be with IM training this year), but as she put it, I'd got nothing at the top end, ie. I am a plodder!! But then I knew that
