Running - Too much weight loss

Posted: 20/03/2013 at 12:52

thanks all, XcurlytwigX your right I dont want to sacrifice achievements and what ive built. But also i fear new weight will go around my stomach and so naturally slow me down. I might try going back to the gym twice a week. Im healthy so no problems there!

I read 8kg gain can cost 30s/mile! Didnt expect to be making these decisions when I started running!!

Running - Too much weight loss

hi, im writing this as I come to a cross roads in my running. My 10k time over the last couple of months has come down from 42 to about 37:30 and my running apart from the odd niggle is going very well. But I have gone from 74kg to 66kg and this is pretty unacceptable to me. It is very thin and a big sacrifice. Anyone had similar issues or advise? Im thinking of cutting my distance down to 5k and go for strength rather than more endurance. My long run is 14.5 miles but i generally only run 30 / 40 miles a week.

hi Stevie, no although Phil A B is not a great name and will have to decide on something better (that others havent taken first!).

I have yet to run a sub 40 10k (40.11) although have it in my legs just didnt race in a while. Track yesterday: 5 * 1500 10k pace (last 300 fast), 400m jog recovery and my times averaged 5:40mm. Race is 3rd March!

hi, does everyone here follow the same training plan? Seems a motivational thread!

10k Time - Currently ~ 40

no reason at all, im just not sure what to run. I have read a lot but there is never a consistent opinion on this...

I can run more days but should i keep them short, 5k or longer 6m or even longer? Also im struggling with the easy/ hard running. Not sure I understand how often i would run an "easy" run and what the purpose is of doing it!
