8 Full days off chocolate and sweets now and things are finally going great. I felt a bit weak, dizzy constantly hungry for the first few days but the body has gotten used to it now and feels much better. A curious side effect is that I now find that 2 sugars in my daily coffee is way too sweet and I now only put in one teaspoon.

On a positive note, I weighed myself this morning and am down a full 4 lbs on last week. That's me right back to my 'normal' racing weight So I reckon I can get down quite a bit further before my Goal race at the start of April.


How's everyone else getting on?


8 full days without chocolate and any other sweet stuff, I'm jonesing sugar like mad , have lost exactly 0 pounds and can't see the end of the tunnel yet.

In a particularly cruel twist of fate I had to make the desserts a couple of evenings ago, which included creating some lovely meringues. God they looked gorgeous! I was highly tempted to grab the lot and do a runner but somehow managed to restrain myself.

But thanks for asking anyway.

In fairness thomas, you don't have much weight to lose.

Seb Coe was only an inch shorter than me but weighed 25 pounds less in his time.

Meno, i'm wondering how much of the 4 lbs were down to chocolate/sweets and how much was down to running?

Thats a savage weight lost in a week though, no wonder you were getting the DTs.

Well stayed off diet coke, chips , crisps/pringles, sweets , chocolate, buns cakes , muffins, tarts, nice things
plus swam three mornings a week ( only missed one )
So feel rightly smug as I scoff tayto , coke and chocolate today > whohooo.

I tell myself the discipline will make me mentally stronger for ultras

How did anyone else survive?
