In other news, I’ve made a couple of changes to my diet.

Breakfast is now cereals and a piece of fruit. I am on Kellogs Fruit and Fibre followed by a banana.

Any run is now followed by 600ml of skimmed milk. No matter how long or short the run I drink it once I get back.

In the weekly shop – we have taken out any buscuits. These are treats only now. More water has been ordered for school. Brynaman Tap water is fine for at home – and comes from the brecon carreg so it’s lovely.

I also tried out a gel today during my long run. Between 8 and 9 miles I took on board a SiS Go Isotonic Energy blackcurrant flavour gel. It says you can take three an hour but I wanted to try them out first. I have no idea whether it made a difference.
