I have a place in the Brighton Marathon so less than three months to go! This will be my first marathon and to say I am excited is an understatement. I am following my training plan and not feeling at all fazed about the longs runs that really start to ramp up in February. My problem is trying to eat healthily and stay away from all the junk that is the only thing I want to eat at this time of year...well any time of year really! I have put on half a stone over the last few months (especially christmas) and am really struggling to lose it!.
Ideally I would like to lose a stone over the next few months. I guess I am worried that I wont do myself justice if I don't ditch the junk but just can't seem to get my head in the right place at tthe moment.
Anyone else sturuggling with following a balanced healthy diet as part of marathon training?
