I have my first race since the half marathon, a short 5km race tomorrow along the river. I almost switched to the 10km, but my training plan said 5km, so I'm being strict and sticking to the 5km intending to go all out. What time am I looking for? 35 minutes and under would be awesome, and I'm hoping to clock around 30 mins before Christmas! I just need to pick up my legs and increase my stride.
Food wise, things have been on and off. I'm still having these insane sugar cravings, and I am slowly getting them under control, and realising that for now, I just can't have a treat now and then, for me it doesn't work, because it just tends to all go down hill. I just need to find an easier way of controlling it, or maybe controlling me a little bit more. I don't want to deny myself, but I also do want to get to goal, and treats all the time and getting to goal do not go hand in hand. No matter how much I run.
Tonight I am off the my first All Blacks game! I'm not the biggest rugby fan, but it should still be a great, I just hope the weather warms up!
