At the risk of a second moany post (sorry!) I need some advice.
I started C25k in August 2013, graduated in November and have been running twice a week since (except for a 3 week hiatus over xmas). I try and edge up my distance on one run (up to 6.5km at present) and run 30mins on the second (with the aim of getting fast enough to do a sub 30min 5k).
I have always said that I didn't start this to lose weight, and I didn't but if anything I feel like I have gained about 5-7lbs and its not muscle, I haven't toned up at all and if anything my clothes feel tighter!
I just got into a real funk yesterday. I can't understand how going from running not at all to running over 10k a week wouldn't even result in marginal weight-loss, or even toning..
I'm 33, 5ft 6 and around 10stone (140lbs). I generally eat well (no crisps, choc, sweets, cakes) although I do like my wine and beer but generally not in excess and only on the weekend.
Just can't really figure out whats going on, and feel a bit cheated that I seem to be getting bigger!
Thanks for letting me rant.
On the upside after my last 'bad run' todays was a good 6.5k, a minute faster than the last and a pb on part of the route so there is a silver lining..
