Cat.i have always gained weight training for ironman.i even gained for the double........i think somepeople like myself think oh good i'm doing so much training i will lose weight but them overcompensate big time.... big brekkie before goingout on the bike.eat whilst out and thena big meal to refuel.then add some treatsbecause i have been so good  doing a long bike.and before you know it you are stuffing yourself silly..

so my advise to those who have a little problem with the weight.....just keep track and be sensible...........

Seren that's always been me with marafuns. I'm hoping that as most of my training will be pre-work meaning I can't eat before and rushing after I may (haha) control it

Week 1 and very hungry, but do need to lost a bit of weight.  I think its the swimming that's making me hungry.

Day 3 another swim and will run tonight.

Will I ever get used to these early mornings.

Are you drinking enough TL? I've learned that a lot of my hunger pangs are actually thirst, especially after I've been swimming - either that or I'm drinking carbohydrated water!!

That could be it as I also had a bit of a headache today.  OK will try and drink more water.

Hope trainings going well for everyone.

I find swimming really draining..... Even though it does not feel like,'proper' exercise.....

Seren... Nice attitude..... Build slowly and consistently......

Saw an email today about those on the waiting list maybe getting an email over xmas.

Re weight loss....

Well i was a fit bloke (2 halfs the year before) and i lost a stone in my first IM year.
Sounds good eh?

However i have lost nothing in the next 2 years despite training more.

Also many lady pirates report losing no weight...... They are way fitter and things get redistributed, but if you exercise like a horse you eat like a horse.... And horses dont lose weight.

So dont under eat. that way leads to feeling like shit and falling apart
Dont overeat. yes you are exercising lots but do you really need that chocolate muffin. is an apple a better idea?

On long bike rides, eat/ drink regularly. you are fuelling for the ride and getting used to fuelling for a subsequent run as well.....

Many lose weight when the bike miles go up. Toning will certainly be evident though as training progresses. It's long and slow stuff that burns fat. Short fast efforts burn glycogen. And it's fat burning that you should be training for as that will fuel your race.

Yea! I'm excited at the news that all us wait listers may get in to the race after all. I'm on the list since the day after it sold out. Was going to stay on the short courses this year if I did not get in to Outlaw. Now I'm suddenly looking forward to going long again.

O.C speaks sense (as usual!) about finding a balance to your eating, I under ate last year trying to lose a few pounds as the race loomed, and quickly felt like shit then fell apart!

So many things to do differently this time round, can't wait!

They did a double blind test with two groups who had no idea why they were being tested. One group did swimming the other running then they reversed. After training they provided a free buffet and used hidden cameras to record what people ate. The swimmers always ate more.

They have no real cuase but did wonder if swimming lowered core body temperature by a fraction and so human need says get food now to rev the engine.

So swimming probably does make you hungrier than running but you don;t always need the intake.

I think I read somewhere that doing easyish exercise makes you feel hungry, whereas if the exercise is more intense/harder you tend not to feel hungry afterwards. I know when I am swimming it generally does not feel as hard as when I run, (the exception would be coached sessions where we are doing some kind of speed thing). Can't remember where I read that though

I often feel sick after a track session or hard run. Though the XC league does put on a good buffet... I eat loads then suffer GI issues all afternoon.
