Still eating 3000 calories a day. Fortunately new challenge sorted....

posted on Tuesday, 1st December 2009 | find under Fitness, Nutrition

I am officially down from the high of New York. So the search for a new challenge has been uppermost in my mind, especially as I am still eating as if I were training for a long race. And I am down to three short runs a week...so something has to give!! And I would rather it's not the waistband on my new Spa pants...

Then came the offer from Yolanda to do an event together (mmm, race with a pro athlete, this sounds well and truly beyond my comfort zone?!) But knowing her training regime, it might go some way to burning those extra calories to which I am now accustomed.

Move over New York...the new challenge is Derby! Well to be precise Nottingham and Derby... a race between the two! It's the "perfect" (?!) distance and a chance for another PB (as this is the first race of its kind!) It's called a "kilomathon" and the good news is it's 26 kilometeres rather than miles. 16 miles-ish. Much better!

So the training starts in earnest after our Christmas party tomorrow night. It's got rather chilly but my new thermal running top is toasty warm and my husband rather likes it - some good taste at least!

I am rather excited...... I will look forward to letting you know how the training goes..... feet are ready to go!!

Ok so now you have inspired me to think about running...I am off to book myself in with the physio to check that my knee can cope...

I am in awe!
I seem to remember a time when a certain Mrs Thornton wouldn't be spotted running for the bus. You are an inspiration!!! x
