Day 9 of detox was more of a success than yesterday. Tomorrow is the last day of my 10-day detox plan but since I cheated quite a few times (two), I am going to continue with the eating plan. It is quite a manageable plan that I think I can maintain.
Green smoothie and green tea for breakfast
A large protein filled salad for lunch and,
Soup for Dinner
What I need to do is keep my eating clean and watch my carbs.
The other major plan for 2013 is my goal to run two marathons. I have already picked out the races and one is in June while the second one is in October.
I want to focus more than ever on my running and my goal is to break into the 9-min pace. The mantra I am borrowing from Nike is # Make it count.
What I am struggling with is when to start my training. I learned the hard way last time that you can’t train for a marathon and lose weight at the same time. You need to fuel your runs and that’s goes against my weight loss mode. I need to lose at least 10Kgs before I get to my first marathon in June.
The very latest I can start my training is mid February and I Need to do something to get the ball rolling.
I have decided on a marathon plan that I think I can do.
I am using the Hal Higdon training plan.
It’s an 18wk plan that has you running 5 days a week, resting for one day and cross training for the other. I have this tendency to want to run everyday but I will stick to the plan because the experts know best.
Plan for January is to focus on weight loss and get out for a run 6-7 days a week. When February gets here, I will get started on my 18wk plan.
It’s gonna be a great year I can feel it.
