Cycle - 24m

Route: 24m (or really 2 X 12m), road, flat and hilly
Weather: windy again

Cycled through to Harrogate and stopped for a cup of peppermint tea with my cousin and her partner. Felt good and strong most of the way apart from about 3m from arrival on the first legn when I felt a definite energy low. Fueld up with a Kit Kat before returning home. Once that kicked in, felt good again.

Am trying to alter my diet a bit at the moment as I have been using running as a bit of an excuse for eating whatever and whenever I like. It shouldn't be like that. I am trying to eat hi energy low fat foods wherever possible and also to minimise chocolate which I love (a bit too much!). Overall I think I have a pretty good diet. I don't drink tea or coffee, don't drink alcohol and apart from chocolate have no real vices. I just want to cut out the energy spikes and troughs and try to reach a more consistent energy level. We'll see how it goes.

Foot feels much better today, but am still going to avoid running until next Tuesday (although I was sorely tempted today!)
