Johannesburg Treadmill Running

This was hard work, partly because the hotel’s gym inexplicably didn’t have water to drink, but mainly because here it’s above 5,000 feet and there’s less oxygen.

Vegetarian Marathon Runner Diet Plan

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

Talking of which, my weight is down 0.4kg since the start of 2019.
