NO NO NO NO NO!!! This is NOT what is currently adviced! The BEST way to improve glyogen stores is to increase your carbs as you taper your training and the simplist way to do this is to have a small amount extra each day, say an extra slice of bread as you taper and to have glucose-fructose drinks. NO ONE recommends carb loading anymore. Do you actually READ research papers?!
thanks ashamed to say I had already had to lose a couple stone back in 2007 when I first started running *turned to then-partner one day in april and said "Im gonna run Dublin marathon this year" -he replied "yea alright" - I DID as well lol*. Post baby number two that was conceived very soon after marathon I had piled it all on again AND MORE. THIS time I am determined to KEEP it off. Hasnt been easy tho. 6 days a week in the gym, plus boxing and hockey. My life did a 360 the day I joined Fitness First Bognor. Not only did I lose a whole small persons worth of weight, I became a sports therapist and now work for a local football team. Not bad for a girl who HATED PE at school and refused to do it! HAHA
