I've also had this problem in the past and have struggled to eat enough to stop my weight dropping but I have found drinking a chocolate milkshake and a fruit smoothie each day an easier way to add more calories, this has stabilised my weight.
Hello, I have been following this thread deliberating about what to say so here goes...
I started running nearly 3 years ago after being inspired by my sister and a friend running the London marathon, I was approaching the big 40 and thought I would give it a go, the next year, 2011, I completed the London marathon in 4:24.
Now I am well and truly hooked on running and have improved on my 5k, 10k and half marathon times and would love to run sub 3:50 to get a GFA place at London. I have a place in the Brighton marathon next year.
My current PB's suggest I should be able to achieve this however I seem to favour the shorter distances so I really need some help and advice to improve my times over the longer distances. 5k 21:48 10k 45:32 Half marathon 1:45:38 These times have all been set in the last 3 months.
I have just started following the Hal Higdon Intermediate 2 plan including a parkrun most weeks and a pilates or body balance class.
I enjoy challenging myself and when I set myself a target will do what it takes to achieve it, I am very determined but need the right advice and support to help me reach my goal.
There seem to be a few of us chasing the same goal, maybe we could share a mentor
