Hi All

I have noticed that when travelling with work or feeling unwell, weeks I do not run my weight loss accelerates faster than when I am running hard week after week. Does anybody else notice this? If so what is the body doing?

What is your diet like when you are training? Are you consuming too many calories to fuel your training (e.g. sports drinks?) I have seen athletes overestimate how much food they need to train and consequently don't loose weight / put on weight.

Hi Martin thanks for replying,

I dont go near sports drinks as the calories look frightening. The breaks I have are small usually less than seven days and I dont feel I change habits in those days. But I find I go from stable / slowly reducing weight to suddenly dropping a kilo after a 7 day break. Its weird.

Yes. I've had this for the last few weeks. I've been eating far more than usual but ran my marathon on 4th Nov. Lost 6lbs in 3 weeks. I just put it down to the cold weather.
