People often start running because they want to lose weight. Running is a great way to lose weight and I’m proof of the fact that you can lose weight through running without actually trying to lose weight.
At the moment, I’m consious of the fact that I am not following a runners diet. In fact, I seem to be doing the opposite of everything you need to do to eat properly. I’m taking in more calories then I’m actually burning… not good!
I know I’ll be okay after the holidays, but that is a long way off. I think I need to sort myself out now for the few weeks up to xmas and then again after xmas.
That means that I go back to attempting to eat more sensibly. I don’t necessarily stop eating loads, my thing is that I eat too much crap. I’ve had a thing for sweets a lot lately and that’ll have to be cut way way down and some alternatives found I think.
I suppose I’m making it sound harder for me then it actually is or will be. I know I can do it if I just put my mind to it. It’s mind over lots of matter… no problem!
I wonder if there are many other “larger” runners out there like me? I mean, a lot of the blogs I read (you can find them under the best running blogs in the menu above) are by runners who are all much fitter than I am. Many have that runners body… you know the one I mean.
It’s a shame the Fat Runner (see the best running blogs) doesn’t post very much because I actually look forward to reading things that I can relate to. Although, I don’t consider myself fat. That’s important to point out because I think that word is quite negative and on top of that, I seriously don’t feel fat. I feel the best I’ve felt my whole life… I just want to feel even better!
I’m really looking forward to pushing the training after xmas and increasing the mileage a bit at a time. I’m curious as to how I will function on a long run that lasts more that two hours! Jeez, can I actually do that? Hell yeah…
