Hey, how are you? It’s a troubling time and I hope your ok.
It’s been a while and well in truth I didn’t feel like I was doing anything worthy of putting up here.
Yes I did Disney and oh my it was hard but I feel like I failed it because honestly I didn’t finish the whole thing. If you read anything up on this years Disney (2020) you’ll see that the marathon was cut short due to the temperature, humidity and the late start and whilst it was a manager decision I still feel like it’s a failed attempt. We’re hoping to go back in 2023, which brings me around about what this post is about.
Apart from the odd mile here and there I have not done anything since Disney and if we are honest before that. I’ve let myself go in the worst way and back to my overeating ways which in turn has ballooned my weight up to 20 stone again, I said I’d never be back at this weight but I’m so stressed and scared that I’m just eating my worries away.
None of this is getting me anywhere near any of my goals whether it’s the one to run a marathon, or the one to run an ultra, the ride a century or to ride around the TT course and my ultimate one to do an Ironman before I’m 40.
I kinda need to get my bum back in gear lol, so welcome to m6 new training diary. Everything cancelled at the moment (apart from Disney in September but I doubt we’ll open our border by then), so I’m not aiming for anything, though I’d love to run a 5K or longer for my birthday on the 24th June.
Now as my ultimate goal is an Ironman I’d be discussing with you about all the disciplines but no swimming pools are open and I’m not confident for sea swimming yet, so it’s just running and cycling at the moment.
I’ve been using Zwift for my cycling with our dumb trainer which I’ve been loving even if my coccyx hasn’t.
So this weeks aims are:
Cycling – 50 miles +
Running – a mile a day (I’ll be run/walking but I’ll be happy!)
Diet – drink 2 liters a day and 1800/2000 calories.
I’m also hoping to keep the No Zero Days mentality. My sister was telling me about it and after a good search I found it on reddit and the general pretense is to do one thing to work towards your goal everyday, however simple it is you will be working towards your goal. As my ultimate goal is an Ironman this is the one I’m working towards.
I hope your ready, this shit is about to get real!
