Up to 7 miles now and speedwork and tempos start this week. Almost down to racing weight now, just the last difficult 7 pounds (I'm currently as light as I've ever been as an adult) until the 6 pack appears!
Could it be that you're dipping in and out of low carb so your body hasn't had time to adapt to any specific regime? I've been NSNG for 4 weeks now and haven't hit any speed or distance yet as I'm coming back from injury, but am interested to see how it works. As Millsy alluded to, extra carbs on days with tough workouts to replenish glycogen would be needed. If I were to hit longer races like the marathon, I would probably experiment with Ucan.
Hi everyone, I'll read back when I've got some time!
I've been out pretty much since March - I injured my rib and as that was getting better I damaged the tendons in my left ankle. I've been running for a few weeks now, and managed my first 5 mile run last night, with no pain, which is good!
The current plan is to build up a bit of base and get down to something approaching racing weight, before targeting a couple of fast 5ks in May/June.
