Default Expert advice on running and lc please

Hi everyone, first time poster here, v. Long mime lurker!

Ok, I'll make it short, I have been very successful on lc, had two children and been back on it for a month. Ive lost the weight I needed, im a shorty, 4ft 11 so can't carry much weight easily without looking like a potatoe in a sack! So, I've done it and love eAting this way, it's a no brainer.

My scenario is this; I've started running for pleasure, not weight loss, and im training for a ten mile race in October. If I am lc and running, what will I need to do to ensure I can sustain my levels through the race? Do I need to eat lc or fat bombs or something to keep me going or will I need a fix part way through? If I need the fix and I don't eat 'sugar' or carbs, what do I need to do?

It's probably been done to death on here, but I need some sound advice please.

No you didn't. I am not a runner myself so can't answer you. I've been around a year or so and can't think offhand of anyone who is a dedicated runner. Maybe someone will show up soon.

I don't think many of us are marathon runners here, but I did a search and came up with at least one link which may apply: http://www.thisrunnersrecipes.com/t...carb-long-runs/

Found the following:

Matt Fitzgerald explains in his book The New Rules of Marathon and Half Marathon Nutrition, “As long as some of your harder workouts are carb-fueled and others are not, your fat-burning capacity will increase more than if you fueled every hard workout with carbs and your fitness will increase more than if you never took advantage of the performance-enhancing power of carbohydrate.”

Thank you both, I thought I'd asked a dumb question 😀

I think I'd like to be armed with info on what's going to happen/ what to expect)to my body the more miles I can clock whilst on lc? If someone has gone through it already any advice would be welcome.

I didn't want to up carbs because can't deal with them very well. I'll keep on going and see what happens!

Maybe Ken can answer your question, he's been doing some marathons...

Here's his journal URL, Imma sure if you asked your question there, he may be able to help you:
