Fueling up for Round the Bays run
Team Brexit are hitting their training hard.
The team, made up of Simon Collins, his wife Sinead Loughnane, Ian Benet and Esther Laverick, has begun training for Ports of Auckland Round the Bays run on March 5.
Since last Tuesday Simon and Sinead have had two personal training sessions, worked out at the gym, run 5 kilometres and had an early morning yoga session.
Ian attended the personal training sessions, spent his weekend climbing the Pinnacles in Coromandel and played his first soccer match for the year.
All this exercise has led to one thing - eating more.
While Simon and Sinead don’t eat much meat they’ve been filling up on protein heavy foods like beans, nuts, eggs, quinoa, brown rice, and peanut butter.
Sinead’s quite interested in the dietary aspect of training and is looking forward to learning about when and what they should be eating on race day.
Ian’s eating habits are a little different.
Alongside planning meals and more vegetables Ian bought a Christmas ham last week and has been doing his very best to ‘‘tear through it’’ ever since.
Team Brexit’s training is well underway.
Next week they’ll be attending their first morning running club at 6am.
