Running Diet?

hiya,

Posted in the cardio section but not much response so thought id try here.

training programme now sorted out for the great north run and started this week

so training is now looking like this:

Monday: AM- Run; PM- Chest and Bis
Tuesday: AM - Back; PM- Kikboxing
Wed: AM- Run
Thursd: AM-Shoulder & Tris; PM- Kikboxing??
Frid: AM-Run
Saturday: Run
Sunday: Legs

prob now is, im permanently starving. I started doing low carb approx 1 month ago and i am quite wary of upping my carbs as this diet as been keeping sugar craving under control.

any suggestions??

    from experience (regularly race any distance between 10k and marathon) carbs are the way forward. to be honest carbs are the only really effective way of fueling yourself for running.

    what exactly are you doing in your running sessions ?

    get the running sessions right and you could probably get away with 3 runs a week instead of 4 for the GNR. also getting the runs right you won't have to change your diet as much

    thats a lot of training (notice the running schedule says rest on days 2,4 and 7)

    overtraining is worse than undertraining

    if you are going to train like this take out one of the run sessions (so you have one day totally free from training)

    maybe even limit yorself to 1 kickboxing session a week

    ive cut the kikboxing for thursdays out but wasnt sure how to fit in my weight routine with the running.
    just doesnt seem possible to have one free day of training completely.. you reckon that is something that is this really neccessary?

    the reason i suggest have a day totally free from training is because running is very stressfully on the body (due to it being higher impact than probably any other form of exercise).

    because you seem to have a good base level of fitness anyway its going to be more of a case of your body adjusting to the new movement and stresses than anything else. once your body adjusts to running your gains will come easy.
