I have noticed that when i train for an event I gain weight- around half a stone which really shows on my 5ft 2 frame- before my marathon and current half marathon training my body composition was 51kg, (8 Stone) with 20.1% body fat- now im in the throws of my training, once again i find myself half a stone heavier with almost 22% body fat, an inch bigger around the waist, hips and legs, my clothes are tight and i dont have the muscle tone in my stomach that i did. (Ive been told I have a slightly 'softer' shape)
Id like to think that this was down to eating too much but i monitor what I put in so I know I am not eating excessively.
This is really discouraging for me as I enjoy sport very much- anyone else find that this happens to them?
