In this last year i’ve found myself feeling increasingly unhealthy and, come the end of summer, I was ready for some kind of detox. I made the decision to radically change my diet and I’ve been following a plant-based diet now for what will be nine weeks on Sunday. In other words, i’ve gone vegan. There’s a couple of things to get out of the way first: I’m still learning and I still have a lot to learn about the vegan lifestyle.
If we were having coffee you’d ask me how my training is going and i’d glance at my FitBit-less wrist with guilt written across my face. I’d confess to being a bit complacent at the start of the year and now feeling the creeping panic settling in. In just five weeks i’ll be walking the 100km to Brighton and i’m feeling nowhere as fit as I did when I walked the same distance to Cambridge last year.
