Just come back from a 5.34km - with a bit of a difference: Remember I said last time I ran that my fitness had gone out of the window and that I was fatigued at around 15 minutes? Well today when I got tired, I kept finding more and I felt that I was going at a good clip today.
I'm thinking it might be down to the latest addition to my diet: oatmeal shakes. I've only been drinking them for a couple of days, but today I really felt like I had a lot more energy! I'm taking oatmeal shakes to increase my calorie intake (yes, you heard right). I've decided to make my main goal to build muscle: after all the more muscle mass you have, the more calories you burn anyway. Not looking to get huge; I've always found that a bit freaky looking and at 5ft 6in it wouldn't suit me anyway. Just nice and athletic - like your average Premiership footballer would do.
Next time I go, I'll use a route I know is exactly 5k - if I trash my PB, then I have my answer, eh?
