I am training for my first marathon with mileage upto 60 per week now.
Until recently my long runs were 13 miles ish with a weekly mileage of arund 40.
I am 42 slim build male (10st) running has upto now controlled my weight but as I am running further my appetite keeps increasing- I am eating best part of a double portion for my evening meal and then dessert, biscuits ect before bed. During the day also eating more.
I am very aware of eating the "right things" monitor saturated fats-but starting to find trousers getting tight and my stomach getting bigger.
Being of a slim (skinny) build it doesnt take much to make me look as if i have swallowed a football, doing sit ups and feel abs still fairly toned but a layer of "fat" starting to build on top.
I dont want to cut down on food intake as think my body needs it for the extra running.
Anyone have a similar experiance?
