I am running like 3-4times per week, and typically every other day, but nothing serious, it can be from 3-6 miles, Iv lost 2 stone since I started running but iv become serious about it, im 11stone8oz now and im 5ft11. I love running so iv got to a point where I want to do more races but run them fast, my main goal is to be able to run 10miles in under 1:10:00. I only started to lose weight but got into the whole running thing immediately and now want to be fast. I am not looking towards marathons etc tho but I enjoy the smaller distances like half marathons, 10miles and 10k etc. If im signed up to a run, it motivates me even more. And what did you mean when you said 'varying'?
Yes I dont snack, I only have 3meals per day and that is all. My other problem is drinking, I enjoy my beer so I will have 4 cans around 3 nights a week. I also work nights (10pm-6am) so I run at around 6.30am when I finish cause I find I perform much better, I can run 5-6miles comfortably at a 8mile pace, but then when I run on my days off I cant seem to run half as far, I feel unfit, its strange. I just want to get fitter but its fustrating.
Hello fellow runners! I need some advice off you guys, I started running in April of this year and decided to sign straight up to a race to give myself something to work towards so I went ahead and got a place in the Bupa Great South Run. I ran it on Sunday in a finish time of 1:22:05 (10miles). I no this isnt great but I was pleased with it. I have now ran 225miles since I started but am starting to become serious about it so I am here to ask for some advice in the way of eating and training, are there any 7 day eating plans for runners anywhere on the net? I dont want to 'diet' as such, just eat the right stuff in the way of gaining or keeping fitness, I also would like to no how often and what distances I should be running when I do, I currently eat alot of pasta but I have a bowl usually with 'Dolmio' type sauce with it. I eat Weatabix for breakfast. I am highly greatful for any advice you runners can give me.
