12 Weeks to Comrades
Nutrition – Week 6 Summary
New Kicks and More effort = more food
Main training days Wednesday, Sunday see increase in carbs, Saturday loading, Sunday pre run. Long progressive run was completed with no run fuel,just pre-loading and recovery.
Weight Target 67-69kg Training \ 65kg Race Weight
Weight has dropped into 67kg range during week due to the increase in effort and volume, so I have increased calories and carbohydrate intake for days with keys sessions, this mainly involves adding sweet potato into the normal meal. Still keeping an eye on fatigue levels.
