Hey everyone, I hope you are all making the most of the glorious spring sunshine before we are back to overnight frosts!
I treated myself this week to an order of the new Trek flapjacks.
When I saw they were doing a flavour with coconut I could not wait to try one, and I was not disappointed. The bars have big flakes of coconuts in them, so the flavour really comes through. Delicious! The ingredients list is not as natural as a nakd bar (the chocolate coating has some sugar in it etc) but it probably compares to a Clif bar in the end, and I love those too. I had half at break time and half in the afternoon to keep me going. They have some other flavours but I imagine that the coconut is the best one! (Also if you want a 10% off code then leave a comment and I will email you).
Last night I went to the Sweatshop run. My brother has come along for the last few weeks, which has been great as we don’t see each other that much normally. We run at a pretty similar speed, and that has turned out even better as all the slower people seem to not come any more. I had worked my way to the middle of the pack (sometimes even keeping the group leaders in sight) but now I am right back to the back of the pack again. I don’t really mind because in the end you just measure against yourself, but I was finding it tough (the first mile was done in something like 8.48, so very fast for me) and those doubts starting creeping in. Not for long though. It was so hot though- I wore my Sweatshop t-shirt but I think it is time for vests now really- a few people asked me if I was OK as I had such a red face by the time we got back! Nope, that is just the colour I go in the heat!
I am off to pump tonight and am going to use the lesson I learnt last week and go slightly lighter on some of the weights as I massively struggled last week (I know it should be tough, but I had to stop a few times which shows the weights were too much).
I am hoping to go to Parkrun on Saturday morning, so I don’t want really achy legs for that.
Do you ever get that back of the pack feeling?
