ATC (the langadi ghodi) July 13th to July 20th

My ankle is still troublesome, am waiting on my insurance card to go see a doc. But been researching,
I think its my tendon, have had probs with it before and went for physiotherapy. Think its back...
and been good about taking care after every workout. Yesterday, after the 4 miles fast walking I soaked in ICE water for nearly 10 mins. Its a different issue that I didn't feel my toes till I took a shower. Been wearing a wrap all the time for support. Ugh...one time when you need part of your body functional...hence, a langadi ghodi :(

Chocolover - July 13th to July 20th

Have been MIA for sometime!! Need to get back and good about logging everything!

I am not losing weight yet, so I need to start measuring myself to keep a tab if i am losing inches. As an FYI to all girls here- I talked to June, a pacer from naperville group, and he said that sometimes marathon runners gain weight in their first year as they are building muscle (they lose inches, which is great), but their is a possibility that they might not keep a tab on the food due to increased appetite *after* their training is over.

I put on weight last year ; I ate well during the training, but when the training stopped in September, due to my increased appetite, I didn't keep a tab on what i was eating versus burning.

As of now, as you all are training- definitely eat well. June mentioned that if I don't eat well while training, I will get weak and catch a cold. And ofcourse, OPOC, agree- we need to keep a watch on what to eat *during* the training too! And *after* training for sure.

Here's a really good website to know more about diet for novice runners and also good carbs versus bad carbs..
