Gym 2.0

This is more of a training blog than it is LCHF blog lately. The reason is there is nothing new on the food front. I eat low carb and it is going well. But running! I love it! So much to tell!

I usually do hill training on the treadmill. I managed it the first time but only because I decreased the speed to close to zero. The second time I had to stop after 15 minutes and the third time I wanted to die. Today I felt like superman. Strong, fast and unstoppable. I even added another 10 minutes sprint after the hill training.

It's days like this that I am happy I signed up to the gym. The weather was terrible. Stormy winds and heavy rain. I would never have gone out running in this weather. I don't mind some rain or the cold but I don't want to torture myself. Running should be fun and British winter is not the best time for fun running. Although to be honest it was absolutely amazing running on Saturday - sunny, warm and autumn colored leaves everywhere. So there are good moments too. And for the bad days I can go to the gym. Win-win.



Autumn run in the South west of England looks almost like this (http://1.2.3.11/bmi/www.shutterscript.com/wp-content/files/Autumn_Run/Autumn_Run.jpg)

  1. Hello!
    Like to read your blog! I'm on lchf too and I'm a runner too. Now, I'm having the same problems, I just can't run more than 5 minutes. And I usually run for about 20km per training. I took a pause with my trainings and concentrating on my diet. Hope the strenght will come back soon.
    Have a nice time. =)
