My little trip to Tenerife

The reason why i have not been very active these past couple of weeks is due to my trip to Tenerife of the 15th July. I went to Los Christianos with a friend and believe this or not, my first time travelling abroad! We stayed in the Arona Gran Hotel and in all honesty, it was the best week of my life. The weather was perfect, the area and scenery was perfect and the hotel was very good quality. I can understand why it is classed as a 4-star hotel. The flight was suprisingly quick only taking 4 hours, as i thought the flight time may have been longer. I would reccomend Los Christianos as a very good choice for a family holiday, or even a holiday with mates. This is because of Playas De Americas, a strip of bars, shops and nightclubs around a 20 minute walk from Los Christianos, perfect for a night out to remember! I realy enjoyed my time away but i am pleased to be back and blogging again.

Running a Marathon: Update

As it has been around 3 weeks since i last posted about my running, i feel although i should give an update on how i am progressing.

I have been sticking to my running and been jogging lightly around 2/3 times a week, stepping up as the days progress. Having started back from a months break, i have been boxing for 1 week now, which helps greatly with fitness. I am planning on stepping up the intensity of my running as the future comes. However, i have been struck with a minor back injury, towards the left side of my lower back, which could slow my progress.  I am unsure what this is and am slightly concerned on whether to ignore the pain and fight through it, or contact a doctor.

The exercise side of things i am totally fine with, but its the diet part that i struggle with. I just cannot seem to eat the right foods. Is there any tips or hints to help me improve my diet? This will help with both my running and my boxing.

Thank you very much for all the support.
