Training for a big event.

Posted: 11/01/2013 at 11:54

Thanks guys, the advice was given from work colleagues so that's why i post on here. Hoping for a response from someone who maybe has more experience. I did a 10k run yesterday, but felt i could go on longer. Unfortunately it was getting dark and i did not have the appropriate safety clothing on and the streets are poorly lit so was going to attempt it today, but wanted to get opinions first.

If it doesn't affect your fitness and you are happy with your body shape, I say keep doing it. Surely you are allwed one vice? Or if you feel that bad, when you go out on a mad binge, punish yourself with a mad run the next day. If you burn the calories off then what's the problem? Basic Maths, if you put more calories in than you are burning off you will put on weight. Sometimes though what you think is hunger is often mistaken for thirst. Perhaps try upping the water intake?


Eating just before bed time

I don't eat late at night because it stops me from sleeping. I also found that when I have tried different ways of healthy eating, I lost half a stone in a week by not eating anything after half 6 in the evening.

Hey, I have been running now for around 6 months and have kind of got 'the bug'. I am a larger frame (6' and around 15.5 stone). I can run 10k in an hr on road surfaces, I have been advised to not run on consecutive days because i am a larger frame. This really frustrates me as I have never had a running injury and don't suffer from the normal aches of post training. I have never done a major event before and have the chance of running an event consisting of a 6k run, 11k run covering 800m altitude, a half marathon and 10k run over 4 day period. Could someone please put me out of my misery and tell me running on consecutive days is OK and any training tips for the event? Thank you
