Hi anyone and everyone,
So lets not beat about the bush I desperately need some hep/advice. I've been running for about 8 years and having built up over the years I completed my second marathon this June in 4:48 (a 30min PB on 2011). I'm 6`2" and 17 & 1/2 stone and gaining weight at an alarming rate!!
Anyway a change of job has lead to a change in training regime and I've lost my way. Basically running further and further particularly alone is dull, so I thought I'd move over to Triathlon. I thought the variety outweighed the greater challenge.
But after a couple of months it's all going wrong, I can only manage a 3 mile run, my swimming has improved (distance not sure about technique) and i haven't started any proper cycle training yet (other than my 6 miles of commuting daily)
I've read lots of training plans and diet advice and I can't decide what's best for me. Years of regular running has never helped stabilise my weight.
I'll take any advice including being told to man up.
Thanks for listening
