    Have you tried using Cronometer or something like that to track your diet? I know you need the protein, but it looks like you go for days without eating any vegetables; surely that can't be a good long term diet?

  6. Mangosteen

    Mangosteen Hold strong not

    I'm taking a rest week too.
    Gives me good amount of time to sort out my diet but I find it so boring not lifting. Lucky the universe sprung one on me and now I have a sprained ankle.

    Why are you next goals then?

    I used to use an app on my phone to track my diet, you're completely right I need more vegtables. The reason why is because I'm at home while on holiday from uni and my family rarely have any in the fridge, I have gotten lapse on it though and will buy some tommorow. I take a multi-vitamin but it's a cheap all in one type thing from asda so I'm not sure it's very good. I need the real thing.

    Last time I took a week off weight lifting it helped a lot and the weights shot up the week after, so I'm hoping the same will happen after this as I struggled last week with weights I can normally manage.

    My goals at the moment are to maintain strength, very slowly lose weight to get to 77kg and be able to run 5 miles with 6.5 minute miles, so in 32.5 mins ( I managed 34.18 mins a week ago).

    Just checked my 5 mile run on google earth, does anyone know how accurate that is? I would of thought it would be a little low due to it not taking hills into account since it only has a top down view?

    It said my 5 mile run is 4.75 miles, so I'm a bit further away from 6.5 minute miles than I thought I was.

    Not sure about Google Earth, but I used to use MapMyRun and that seemed pretty accurate from measuring distances in the car. I couldn't be absolutely precise but it was very close.

    I found this

    Seems even if it's a hilly run it makes very little difference to the distance as measured by these apps unless you're runing huge distances.

    That would make sense I reckon, think "sides of a triangle" in maths and unless you're doing a long mileage up a geet big steep hill it's not going to be that far out.

    I suppose the other thing to do would be to see if there's a runnig track near you that you could use? I used to go do a 400m lap on the local school's track then stop and do a pattern (I know that's not your thing but you see the idea), then another 400m lap and a pattern, etc etc. That meant 15x400m with a pattern in between each lap.

    If you have a school track or similar near you (surely be one at Uni?) you could use it for running measured distances and for interval training too.

    I have a plan from T-Nation or similar that was about weight loss using 400m runs which I might be able to dig out if that would be any use to you?

    Thanks I appreciate it but I'm ok. I'm doing the longer runs to improve my areobic base not to lose weight, after I reach my goal I am planning on working on an anaerobic training block with sprints and 400m runs etc.

    What's a pattern by the way?

    Same as a kata in karate, the pre-set sequences of movements most people don't see the point of :D

    13th September 2012
    Muay Thai 1 hour 30 mins
    Biked 15 miles

    1 Panini with hamand mozzerella
    1 Glass of milk
    Rice with tuna and tomatoes
    3 Scrambled eggs and tomatoes
    2 grilled quarter pounders with half a cucumber
    Chicken and chorizo paella
    1 Protein and Shake
    2 slices of chocolate cake (came home from training to find my mum had brought one, Ihave zero self controll if something is in front of me lik that :( )

    Need to keep my diet lean for the rest of the week after the cake.

    Was doing some research on what type of speed boxers do road work. A lot seem to go very slow,from what I've read it's rare for any of the weight classes to go faster than 7 min miles, most go at a plod for some reason. There are exceptions, I head a few of the lighter pros can do 6 min miles, I would be happy with being able to do 6.5 min miles for 5 miles or at least hittin 7 min miles regularly as I'm a super middleweight it's hard to get really good run times from a competitive running view point.

    Here's the plan to get rid of the cake :D

    I know you said you don't need it for weight loss, I think I mis-sold it though, so thought I'd post it anyway in case it was helpful. Apologies for spamming up your thread. Worth a read though :)

    Thanks, I remember reading that article when it frst came out, very useful, thanks for reminding me of it.

    I did get rid of the cake, just I did it via eating it :(

    Luckily for me as long as my diet is fairly clean weight seems to fall off me. Yay for being 21 I guess.
