Under 100g carb per day is pretty low carb, some diets like the keto diet go as far as under 50g per day I think. Dunno about an accepted definition, of course it's different per person based on needs/how your body processes it.
Hi James, congrats on getting through and good luck with the training!
I'll be following your thread and training with a keen eye as my times are pretty similar to you, just have never been able to transfer it to a sub4 marathon..yet! I tried your interval session out last night and was pretty tough, deffo not feeling very fit at the mo. I've taken the "off season" concept from triathlon a little too far..!
Anyway, best wishes to your mum and bro. Try not to worry
Congrats Malcs for getting through and winning your category! I know, I know, I'm majorly behind the times but better late than never
I'm being lazy, is your plan for the first few weeks on a page somewhere? Not that I'm likely to be getting 3:30 on a marathon anytime soon but I quite fancy the sound of some of these interval sessions! I tend to do all my interval training on the dreadmill, getting to a track round here is tricky and I'm yet to find the perfect stretch of road.
Hi folks! So glad to read you all had a fab time! I was gutted that I came down really badly with flu, wasn't really allowed to run and I had to make a hard decision. Always next year for me - optimistic thinking! When do you find out?? Wishing you all lots of luck whoever gets through, I'll be following!
Interesting, I've actually found 2-3 weights sessions per week have really helped with my running over the last year and has definitely helped reduced injury and niggles. I also think I've got faster! I'm not talking serious body building stuff, but simple compound exercises to help improve strength, like weighted squats, lunges, deadlifts working at 5-8 reps for 3-5 sets (at 70-80% 1 rep max). Obviously build up the weight and concentrating first off on good form is the most important thing. For me it's really helped, but everyone's different and there's no one set formula
