I have been out of therapy for my eating disorder for a year now and have taken up running again. I did a 10k race for life in June and am now looking to do a half marathon at the beginning of october. Now i am upping my mileage more my longest run in the week being 11 miles and i run about 20 - 25 a week I am really struggling to know if i am eating the right amount of food and things to maintain my weight.I also struggle knowing how much running I should be doing every week and whether i am doing too much. I have no problem soing the running i do just don't know if I can compensate for it by getting enough food in me. I do still have some issues around food ut i find when i can run i worry less about what i put into my body. I tend to eat no more than 2000 calories a day and I don't weigh myself so I don't become obsessive over it. My ultimate aim is to try and do the marathon next yr if i get a place of course and would like anyone who has been in this situation before to provide me with some advice if possible. Thank you so much. Running makes me feel strong and makes me feel capable of something but it obviously raises some issues when it comes to food.
Thank you so much xxx
