What are you thinking for the new target Tommo?
Fantastic HM's Madbee, Ramjet, ML, Muddy (forgive me if I forget any other names, it's a page back now!)
OH and I eat lower carbs as a general rule. He lost loads of weight sticking to the diet in the first year or so, I couldn't when Ironman training (kept bonking, couldn't get enough calories), but am back to eating less carbs again now. I have porridge for breakfast but otherwise mostly low to no carbs for other meals. It works for us, and if nothing else we eat far more veg than before. Am actively trying to drop a few kg for this marathon, going ok so far but it's about now that I usually crack and buy a bag or 5 of sweets or crisps.
18M LSR for me this week, along a very muddy thames path. Sucked the energy from my legs so I found it quite hard. You can see on strava the only bits of the path that weren't muddy by increase in pace by about 1/2mins per mile. Followed by 8 miles Sunday, supposed to be less and recovery but was a catch-up with a friend and was distracted. Rest today, legs very tired.
