I have found one thing I LOVE about training for a Marathon and that is the amount I can eat. This was yesterday’s menu:
Giant soup bowl of muesli and a banana
Cheese and ham toastie
Packet of crisps
Half a tub of Haagen Daz ice cream with chocolate sauce on top
Today someone commented on how toned and trim I am looking these days. Husband even likened my stomach to Jessica Ennis’s washboard but he then continued the sentence with ‘And can you sort out the house insurance and take 5 suits to the dry cleaners for me?’ so I question his sincerity.
When I did my 17 mile run last week my glorious NikePlus sports watch said that I had burned 2150 calories along the way. That is truly amazing and probably more calories than I would have eaten in a whole week pre-Marathon training. But seriously I eat such a huge amount these days I am really worried that I am going to balloon once the Big Day is over unless I keep on running and running and running like Forrest Gump.
I am running the New York Marathon 2013 for Macmillan Cancer Support. If you are enjoying reading my blogs please donate at: http://www.justgiving.com/jayneandtrevorwebb
