Just putting this lot here as a reference for some advice and meal plans.

Although I’m largely omnivorous, I’m currently tending towards being pescatarian and/or a bad vegetarian; going vegan is a step too far for me at the moment, although we’ve just bought some vegan cookbooks, so you never know.


Just for the sake of it, here are my running stats for 2015 (and indeed from 2012, all in kilometres). Here’s to more mileage in 2016!

2015 includes the Winter Run 10k, the Milton Keynes Half Marathon and the Berlin Marathon.

Then of course there’s my weight: 88.7kg on 3 January 2015 and 90kg on 3 January 2016. Ah… I hit a low of 84.1kg on 26 March 2015, but I gained 3kg in December 2015 alone! Must. Try. Harder.

So I ran my first marathon on 27 September 2015: the 42nd Berlin Marathon. Despite having done very little real preparation – you can see my running diary in earlier entries – I finished it in 5 hrs 27 minutes and 23 seconds. This time was engraved on the back of my medal which also shows the world record time set last year, just to rub it in! Anyway, here’s some video of me finishing as well as some of the photos on the course:
