weight gain after a long run

Posted: Today at 08:45
As the others have said, I don't think that this can be "real weight"

I also don't think that severely restricting your calories in the days after a long intense session is good for either your health or your performance.

I've also heard its best to only weigh yourself once a week at the same time / day to get a more accurate picture as your weight can fluctuate by quite a bit during the day.

18.00 is my parkrun PB. That was from last year though. Did 19.05 last week so still have a long way to go to get back my speed.

Beetroot Juice

I can`t stand the tase of it but have had some good performances after taking it. The benefits probably have more to do with a good period of training in the build up rather than the magic beetroot juice.

No PB's for me since 2013. I've been focussing on longer/ off road stuff this year so wasn't expecting too much.
My main focus will be London a Marathon in the spring so will have a few warm up races on the way.
Am doing parkrun on Sat but not anywhere near PB shape.

What is your race entry pattern like?

I tend to plan in my A races quite far in advance. VLM in April and the RAT 32 in August. I then pick a few warm up races that are more local and if I'm feel like it some of the smaller local events that I try to do every year.
Not got a plan for Autumn 2015 yet. Will see how VLM goes first.

Calling 26.2 miles a "full" Marathon

Is this a new phenomenon or have I missed something?

Running advice given out on the BBC

Drink plenty of water for a 10k was the message.
