serious help needed:abs clueless!!

hiya all,

Well for the first time in ages (not to say ever!) im actually training witha v specific goal in mind whihc is to run the great north run in october. Being as im not a good runner at all, im putting quite a bit of training into this. Schedule is currently looking like this:

Monday: Run AM; Chest&Bis PM
Tuesday: Back AM; Kikboxing PM
Wed: Run AM
Thursd: Shoulders & Tris AM; Kikboxing PM
Fri: Run AM
Sat: Run AM
Sund: Legs PM

Now, when i first started doing this i was on a low carb-cutting diet of about 1400-1500 kcal. Problem was then i was starving all the time (not enough clories on my diet i think for all this training!) and got loads craving for high calorie foods (mainly choc and ice'cream!) Normally, i can stick to my diets fine but i found i couldnt do it this time and ended up givin in and ive now found myself gaining weight and feeling quite low about this.

Have designed new diet which is looking as follows:


7:00 AM Breakfast
40 gr All Bran
100 ml skimmed milk
Banana
2 egg whites
1 whole egg
TOTAL KCLA:399,0; CARBS:57,9;PROT:25,3; FAT:6,9
10:00 AM Snack
2 quorn sausages
2 quorn burgers
TOTAL: KCAL:260,0; CARBS:11,7; PROT:33,9; FAT:7,6
1:00 PM Lunch
70 gr lettuce
150 gr chicken
100 gr sweetcorn
50 gr peppers
150 gr potatoes
TOTAL: KCAL:338,4; CARBS:37,3; PROT:41,6; FAT:4,4
4:00 PM Snack
1 muller lite yogurt
1 apple
Banana
TOTAL: KCAL:352,0; CARBS:57,6; PROT:10,8; FAT:5,0
8:00PM Dinner
200 gr chicken/fish
100 gr tomatoes
150gr white cabbage
TOTAL: KCAL:210,5; CARBS:17,1; PROT:36,6; FAT:0,4

TOTAL:
KCAL: 1559,9
CARBS: 181,6
PROT: 148,2
FAT: 24,3


Im not sure at all, if this enough calories to keep my cravings at bay and still loose some weight (im aiming for about 1 stone) and still have energy for training for all that running.

Help seriously needed as i hate gaining weight but still enough energy to be ael to run!!!

    i assume this great north run is a long distance? eg 20 miles or something! (anything less than 20 miles doesn;t deserve the word "great" in the title

    in which case, why are you doing weights? any muscle you gain your gonna have to carry around for 20 miles!!!!!

    do lots of running! no weights IMO. pleanty of stretching, eat a normal diet (no high protein stuff) with pleanty of healthy veg

    TBH your prob better off joining a running forum

    is 13.5 miles. doing that in october and then all being well, mite for full marathon next year..

    im not aiming for just doing running. It just gives me a goal to have in mind when doing my cardio... just keeps me more motivated.

    and all due respect and everything, but dont think skipping the weight would be good idea?

    If you're running that much I would think it would dent your ability to add muscle. Endurance running and strength are quite opposing goals.

    I'm no expert on this but I think it's a bit like wanting to strip off a load of fat, at the same time as trying to bulk, i.e. a bit of a myth. If you want to run, run - don't arse around with weights. Do the run and then come back to them.

    (all IMHO of course)

    cheers for the advice, maybe i havent explained myself properly.

    i enjoy the gym and lifting weights but find keeping myself motivated for cardio quite hard. goals like joining races etc keep me going sortta thing.

    i dont particularly want to bulk up, i prefer the toned-rippped look for myself. however, this means im normally dieting and have no clue as to how to raise the calories in my diet correspondingly to the increase in excercise.

    hope that explains it better!

    Ok makes sense now.

    I think Toxic's "eat, monitor, adjust" phrase is appropriate - just keeping upping the cals until you put on a coule of pounds, then back off a bit. You probably won't need to add in that many but you get the idea - if your weight stays constant during this training then the intake is correct.

    Personally I'd guess at 1500 calories being "a bit too low". Double that might be closer to the mark - but adjust slowly obviously don't just jump in at 3000!
