Eating less when not running is hard! Not running is hard!
I have struggled with my weight while not running as I tend to eat more due to having more time but I am due to meet with an expert tomorrow to discuss my diet and get some 1:1 work to get my strength and conditioning sorted so that I can come back stronger and reduce my chances of further little niggles/injuries.
On 11th June I found myself in a gym on a bike (unable to run) looking at people on treadmills thinking ‘what are you doing why are you not running outside!?’ If fit I would warm up for the gym strenght work by doing a 20 minute run outside and it was driving me mad being stuck inside.
Anyway since then I’ve started running again and I have managed an unspectacular 4km in run in 20:49 and another hilly 5km in 30 minutes. The first run was hard going and unconvincing but I was just glad to be running outside. I seemed to have recovered well from the first run and was able to increase my mileage/time on the 2nd run so hopefully it won't be long before I am fit enough to pick up my programme.
Still got fingers crossed that everything goes well
