Like a car running out of petrol… working out when you’re hungry is hard!

Tonight when I came to do 3xMetis, I thought it would be a breeze. A PB of 23mins to beat? Piece of cake! 

But then when I came to do it, I found the first set completely exhausting. I had no energy. I couldn’t work it out. Then I realised… 

I didn’t very much today. Not out of choice, it was entirely by accident. It was purely down to a busy day at work and slightly too much coffee, which kind of ruins my appetite. I had yoghurt, granola and banana for breakfast and then baked beans on sourdough for lunch. Nowhere near enough energy for a workout!

It was the first time that had happened to me, which is kind of weird in itself. It’s sometimes strange to think of your body in such a basic way. Like a car running out of petrol.

On another note, I’ve changed my next training week to Cardio+Strength, just to mix it up a bit, and to encourage me to get out of the house to do the running exercises.

I’m also trying to work out in the morning rather than the evening, but it’s so bloody hard to get out of bed at the moment!
