Like many, life has been a bit “different” since March. I’ve lost the incentive of the triathlon season, worked 60h weeks, lost access to the gym, ate poorly (long hours and trying to support our local eateries resulted in an awful lot of take-outs), and gave in to more than the odd glass of wine or two in the evening, All of this, recent knee surgery and the inevitable stress of the situation has resulted in me being considerably more weighty than I ever have been in the past.
Time constraints have meant that my smart trainer has remained a firm friend throughout. I’ve completed the 4wk “all-in” plans twice and just finished the Speed Demon plan (watch this space for test results) but I’m really struggling to get the weight off. The work hours (and stress) aren’t going to change any time soon sadly but I’ve managed to stabilise the diet and cut the booze. So, any recommendations on the most effective plans for weight management on a a very tight time budget? (I’m in my late 40s BTW so need to be cautious about injury from over-exertion… just ask my knee!) I’m very open to any other tips and suggestions. I’d like to get back to competitive triathlon next year without being harpooned the first time I get into the pool!
