I must admit that I am really glad that I finished the Ironman challenge last month (September), but I also must admit that it took a lot of energy from me. I felt like I was always exercising and always organizing the next exercise. It was a lot of fun, but i have decided that this month will be all about food food food.
When I exercise I eat more, and when I eat more, I want to eat some more, and I do not lose weight.
This happens when I am exercising over my.. what could I call it... threshold ? Well... How can I explain it...
When I started exercise one time run made me so tired, hungry and I felt like I had done so much that I struggled a bit with the portion sizes. When I had been moving around regularly for three months or so, three times a week run became a part of my routine so I didn't feel this body tiredness and I started to move around some more.
Since I started training for the 1/2 marathon I have been really exhausted.. and then came the ironman thing and wow that took a lot of energy from me, especially fitting the exercise time to my daily live and doing all other things I want to do.
I do not want to stop exercising, so now this month I am only going to exercise three times a week.
Wednesday: Run practice and sometimes swim
Friday/Saturday: Run or do other exercise.
I know this is four times a week hehehe.. but you know how it is, sometimes things comes up, so this is the days I am going to use for exercising
Last month I did this
I exercised for: 22h:58m
I think sometimes it is a good plan to take one step back to be able to go forward and now is that time in my live
