Outlaw Half Training – week 2 done – what did I learn?

Second week now finished and didn’t miss a session, even managed to do them on the days they were intended! Only the run sessions were altered slightly while I return to fitness so all in all I’m pretty pleased with my work this week.

I have discovered though that there’s more to this training lark than simply completing the session, yes that’s important but I have felt really tired all week and constantly hungry. And (according to my other half) quite irritable…I had a think and realised that I normally only get about 5-6 hours sleep a night. I’ve managed like this for many years and as many fellow parents will know this is quite normal. But now I’m training a fair few hours a week – mostly at the start or end of the day, I’ve actually realised that sleeping is something I need to pay attention to and will be striving over the next few weeks to get into the habit of going to bed a bit earlier.

Another area I need to pay attention to is food and drink – I love my food and in some respects one of my main reasons for training is to justify eating copious amounts of food and alcohol! But I have recognised that I need to fuel my body properly to be able to cope with the demands of training but not overload it with rubbish, or booze – the last one is going to be difficult…
