my training has started well... nearly at 1 bottle of red a night!
I am being sensible this year for my IM training......honest..its going to be slow consistent training.......
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!!
I 2nd hunger post swimming being thirst
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.
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.
Now thats an image I hadnt planned on this morning. And instantly, im trying to recal my last deposit........
Last time I floated one off to Tilbury it was a very satisfying 3. I've just finished the morning coffee, so I'll be taking advantage of the office facilities shortly.
Whilst eating my toast and marmite this morning I was pondering.
I've heard the term that the bike section of an IM can be like a buffet use it to refuel from the swim and prepare for the run. Now I wondered marmite is salty ... bread is carbs ... bagels low GI slow release fuel. Therefore would a toasted bagel with marmite be good on the bike? Or do I need high GI foods (I had mini malt loaf on my half)?
i have had cheese and marmite sandwiches................in the past i have not really gone very technical on the bike....i have chosen foods that i like so i will be tempted by them and ones that are cheap...........and ones that don't cause stomach problems
might start to look at it a bit more technically this year
Is there a right and wrong type of stool? Clearly type 7 is a little unfortunate... but of the others, I wonder what might cause such clearly defined structures!
On more 'on topic' note... what events are people doing in the build up to Outlaw... This is my list so far...
Winter Tanners (Run)Punchbowl (Run)Thanet 20 (Run)Hell of Ashdown (Bike)King of the Downs (bike) 7 Oaks Circular (Run)LDWA SD Mara (RunKent Castles 100 (Bike)Chiltern 100 (Bike)SD Mara (Run)
And I am looking for more to do.... God the LDWA otherwise I would be broke. But there are some bike gaps in there and I am on the lookout for long bike rides in the locality of Kent/Sussex/Essex.... might stretch to Surrey at a pinch. I need to squeeze a half IM in there somewhere too... where is the DIY thread?
I'll be doing the 5K swimathon and a DIY Oly and Half at home as I'm skint and spend too much time doing teacher stuff to afford weekends doing tri stuff
Seren I've only really done 1 proper long ride which was my half - SIS drink and a mini malt loaf per lap (4 laps) or per hour 'cos I is slow
I did the L2B ride but that was stop start, bacon roll standing in field, stop stop start, chocolate in a field etc
