Today is day 1 of a self-experiment! I am going to attempt to move my fuelling system away from carbohydrates towards fats. Along the way, I hope to be able to get myself into periodic states of ketosis, and this is going to require some fairly drastic changes to my current diet and lifestyle. I will blog about what is going on over the next few of months, including how I am feeling, performing, and the challenges of adhering to this diet (such a dirty word). But why am I doing this? And how did I get here?
I ran the Stockholm Marathon last weekend. It was my second time but a different style of race this time, as I was pacer, emotional support and water boy for Hanna. We had our moments but overall it was a really good day out, and nice to be able to take a few photos and enjoy the atmosphere of the day.
Right now I am in Rishikesh in the north of India (see photo below) reflecting on what happened in 2016 and planning for this year. 2016 was a busy year, with new projects started in Stockholm, and international expansion of the Run With Me concept. This blog post is a summary of what happened in 2016, and what is new and exciting for 2017!
The Sandalford Vineyard Half Marathon was run last Saturday at Sandalford Winery in the Swan Valley in Perth. It was the first event held at the Perth vineyard, with three previous races being held at the Sandalford Estate in Margaret River. For me it was a chance to run a race with my sister, which I was rather excited about given we hadn't done that before and rarely see each other these days with me living in Stockholm.
