Fuel­ing up for Round the Bays run

Central Leader - - FRONT PAGE - JAMES PASLEY

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.
