Lee - by the look of things, whole 30 is a short term and very restrictive plan. As with LCHF you eliminate sugar, carbs whereas with LCHF, I found dairy was a big part of the plan... Plenty cheese, cream and while milk

Shades - Yeah I have started eating a few carbs just to have a break from planning meals/snacks etc.. Im not going crazy and when I start training for the longer distances I'll go back to that way of eating as it does work. I'll be concertrating on getting my shorter distance times down before London training starts. I've decided I'll do one of those ultras end of November cause I don't feel ready at the moment...

Shades - I did it in about 44min so pretty quickish but I didn't feel like I pushed. Since I started this diet I've lost 11lbs but ice started eating some carbs, fruit and the odd sandwich and rice.. I'll have a look at that marathon as a possible alternative to Edinburgh.

SK - I don't think they need to cause Ryan wasn't disqualified just removed from the public results pending investigation.

Shades - Yeah although I've lost enough weight that it wasn't as tight as I remembered. It felt good to get out today and not worry about my garmin or how fast I was running...

I find Brazil nuts are a great snack. Or slices of salami or chorizo. I have kept my diet lowish Carb for a bit... I am enjoying the odd beer and bit of bread and fruit but am still avoiding refined sugar.. Will get 100% back on it in a month or so.

Well I've just managed a 6.5mile run and I wasn't in too much pain. It was more of a discomfort than pain so I think I can resume training but keep it easy for a few days..

Lee - my advice to you would be to plan meals and snacks otherwise you will open the fridge or pass a shop and because you're hungry, you will eat what you can. The first 3-4 days are the hardest but it does get easier. You will find that you become less hungry and have a smaller appetite but become easily satiated.

Morning shadies...
It's a glorious day here today and I'm or so I'll try have a slow run minus the garmin to see if the compression top helps...

Shades - A quick update about that young runner Ryan Lee.. His mother contacted me yesterday saying that after an investigation his finish has been reinstated with an amended time. Although they didn't say what the issue was, the possibility of a faulty chip at the start was the most likely cause.. They have also given him a place in next year's marathon.

Shades - I've got a couple of compression vest tops which I'll try and hope that I can get a slow run in...

Morning folks..
Shades - hope the injury isn't too serious and you mend quickly..
Big_G - glad that the memorial 10k went well, it would be nice to have it as a regular event.

I had planned to go for a run yesterday but my ribs are still very sore and running is still impossible. Very frustrating. Will see if cycling hurts, hopefully not so I can still maintain my fitness. NHS website says it could take a good few weeks to heal. Grrr
