Can I be the only person that has trained for a marathon and put on weight?
Danny Dreyer, the Chirunning founder is clear. I think that if I am going to shed the pounds, I am going to need to adapt my intake of calories and use running as simply way of toning my muscles. Sure, running 20 miles a week uses about 2000kCals but if you take in an extra 2200kCals then it only going to end one way.
If I use about an extra 2000kCals this week and only take in an extra 1800kCals then sooner or later I should be running with less baggage. It will be interesting to see how that goes over the next year.
