This book takes a lighthearted look at my training leading up to an ultra marathon in 2015, which took me from a standing start completing 5K Parkruns to attempting extreme fitness challenges while eating a fish based diet! More
In 2015 I booked a series of marathons, ultra-marathons and other tough challenges to help me test my new dietary regime as I juggle my training for these events with my full time job and family life commitments. I am a hard working family man with a wife, two dogs, a cat and 7 children. If I can train for these events, then maybe I can inspire you to take on a new challenge and start running. I’ve been a half vegetarian before, lost weight and improved my fitness levels, so I am confident about the dietary changes I am undertaking. I would really like to lose 5kg for my upcoming races so I need to make sure that I am getting the protein and other nutrients needed in my diet without meat. I’ll be adding some recipes and meal plans that I have tried and tested at the end for you to try if you like fish! But can an IBS sufferer run on a seafood diet? And what does it really take to make and achieve your running goals?
