That is what I have been thinking about today! I noticed the other week, when I thought about it, that during the week I drink a lot of water, rooibos tea and normal tea, and on Saturdays because of my long run I also drink lots. But on Sundays I could go all day on 2 glasses of water and 2 cups of tea, which is not good. So today I made a conscious effort to drink more than I normally do.
I drank water with my breakfast (usually I do, but this time I had another glass of water after).
I drank water while I made some cookies;
(Yummy PB and white chocolate ones from Hummingbird ).
I had some tea while I watched The Princess and the Frog (which was annoying as for some reason our box missed the end- will have to wait until it comes on again to see the last few mins)
I had more water with my lunch, some with dinner and will have some later on. So I am going to make sure I think about this each Sunday so I am properly hydrated every day.
We had a lovely meal last night, but what was very funny was on the menu, the lasagne which contained beef, was labelled as being vegetarian. So I think the parmesan cheese was the least of my worries!
This afternoon we had a nice walk, to stretch the legs, but actually I was not feeling at all stiff. I am still really amazed at how much better I am than this time last year, when the 9+ mile runs were such hard work when I was half marathon training- I was actually dragging myself along for the last few miles. Plus I can still function in the afternoon, whereas before the most I could manage was laying on the sofa all afternoon! And I am not exaggerating at all- I was totally wiped out!
And finally a little roundup- This week I did my 3 runs which totalled just over 22 miles, and I was pleased with how I felt after each run, so I am feeling good about that. I also did aerobics, body pump and had a walk on each of my 2 rest days. I have been using the foam roller, and I have been thinking carefully about what to eat to refuel (and fuel) the workouts a little more. So I am counting this week as a success. If I remember I might do a little roundup each Sunday evening to see how the training goes. 🙂
