First post on these forums, just thought I'd say hi and give a general background in case anyone has any tips for me.
Back in school I used to finish top 3 out of the entire school in cross country, run long distance for my house team and 100m sprint every year. Then A levels kicked in, and socialising/drinking etc, I joined a band and I never carried on with it.
Now at the age of 23 I'm keen to get back into things...
My diet hasn't been the greatest since then, but not the worst. I walk to and from work every day, which totals aound 6 hours of walking a week, and every Tuesday evening I play squash with a few mates, but only casually for the last 6 or so months.
I've started doing a couple of light, slow runs with walking breaks, and now I'm considering doing one of these couch to 5k or whatever programs, alongside a running diary. I think the actual running shouldn't be a problem, it's the nutrition I'm struggling with more.
Any tips on food? What did you guys cut out, struggle to cut back on, or started eating altogether?
Any advice would be great, but yeah... hello.
