Hey guys - really good training day today. I incorporated quite a lot and also had a talk with myself about diet.
I have read it time and time again, perspiration is only half of the game, nutrition is what gets you the rest of the way. If I am being honest, I never really believed that, I always just thought if you trained hard you could eat what you want. How wrong have I been. Looking back over my posts last night I realise I have added a confession to almost every blog post and really
THAT IS UNACCEPTABLE!
Why did no one tell me?
Also my portion sizes were way out of whack! I would think to myself, since I am on a low carb diet with no pasta/potatoes it is ok to eat 3 bananas and a yohgurt! Well it all stopped today. Today I am keeping a proper log of everything I am eating including the sizes.
On the training front I squeezed in 15 minutes of solid capoeira at lunch, incorporating the relative few moves I know along with 10 minutes of foot speed drills and box jumps. This set me up nicely for my kicking routine before ending with 15 minutes of stretching. I was pissing sweat by the end but so worth it. Who knew that high and powerful kicks could target your abs and obliques so much!
Weight training tonight went well and as the missus was taking a wee while in the gym I even jumped into the last 15 minutes of a Les Mills circuit class as a cool down.
A really really good day.
