It’s now less than two weeks till my Tough Mudder
say I’m terrified is probably an understatement!
Reality hit me even more so this last weekend as I took a trip to
...Not your typical seaside visit!
Swimming in ‘freezing’ (ok well pretty cold) murky sea water
and running a few miles along the beach in ankle deep water to train with water
resistance, running with wet feet and getting cold.
It was not nice. Though I was glad I did it as it gave me peace of mind that my feet could cope with being wet and gritty...my trusty Fivefingers were comfy throughout.
My mum and cousins made sandcastles on the beach with the kids and 'buried' the dog whilst they waited for me.... a slight contrast!
My posts over these next two weeks may take an ever cleaner twist to my usual as I need to focus in on fuelling and hydrating my
body more intensely. Even
though the recipes I post are all pretty healthy, they don’t always contain the
proportions of proteins/fats/carbs and 'training fuels' that i’m aiming for right now and more than
that, when i’m in recipe testing mode I can sometimes eat quite a lot! Particularly
if I make a large batch of something or there are experiments that have gone
wrong and are not blog worthy (but not ‘wrong’ enough for the bin).
Right now, I need to
get completely focussed.
I have a few recipes that I have made but not yet posted, so
not everything will necessarily be super clean :-)
Here is a sneak preview to forthcoming recipes...
For now, a few more photos and links to a few of my favourite
Fit-Foods for fuel and endurance!
