Slowly I am getting more focused.
In the last week of January I hit all my targets. not only running, but swimming and core work as well.
I also had my first week of eating absolutely no crap.
My input from Tuesday to Friday was two apples a day, a homemade soup and a fish salad.
This resulted in a weight loss of 2kg.
I am still well over weight though at just under 74 kg.
I truly believe that I can stay strong now on and keep shedding the weight.
It really does have an impact.
This time last year I was 72kg and completed the Rodgau 50km in 4:18.
This year I was 74 kg and finished in 4:40.
I had also done 3 roys by this time last year and I eat a gel every 5km. This year only one Rory and a gel every 10km.
I was ok until around 30km resulting a big drop off in performance as can be seen from the graph below.
Weight - lose it!
Gels - one every 5km
Rory's - do them
Next race Marburg 50km 27th February
