I suck at both of these. Like, really, I’m shit. I may be able to run over hills and long distances but I am not flexible. My lack of flexibility and core strength is what gives me injuries. I’ve written before how Pilates helped me in the past but time to fit this in is impossible.
Nutrition has been a bug bear to me over the past few years, since losing weight, i’ve steadily gained some, through ultra training and eating anything that passes me.
This led me to get a Personal Trainer. My two goals are to become more flexible and get the right nutrition in each meal. Starting with some strange animal poses and focussing on lunches that can be pre-planned and made ahead.
I made these today

Meal planning is hopefully gonna help me reach my race weight. Been struggling to get it down. Ultra training does not help. Lunches are my target meal and planning ahead is hopefully gonna get me there. These frittatas can be kept in the fridge for 5 days. Not that they'll last that long. So tasty. Spinach, spring onion and red pepper! The chicken has a Spanish seasoning on it and the quinoa spinach sweet potato salad is pretty tasty. Need to go easy on the garlic paste in that one next time tho. #nutrition #weightloss #exercise #fuel #runfuel #runner #igrunners #fitness #tastyfood #yum #lunches #easy
and started to get to work on some flexibility exercises the PT has put me to. I’m pretty motivated to do this and actually enjoyed cooking and preparing these for the week ahead!
Give me some tips if you have any to try, Think protein, veg and then a fist size portion of carbs is what the PT says.
