Ran 15.5 miles today and then walked another 0.5 mile. Really wanted to run 16 miles today, but I just didn't have it in me. Maybe tomorrow. I usually just push for 10 miles, anything above that is a plus. People ask me all the time what marathon/s I'm training for; they have no clue. I guess it's the ED marathon :rolleyes: Since I have the purging type anorexia, no one sees it. I don't restrict much. My husband recently said there was no way my ED from college was still active (he didn't know me back then) especially with my not really restricting. He just thinks I run a lot and need to eat more to make up for the calorie burn, but I don't eat more and it's on purpose. People see what they want to see.

Scale is being super great lately...weighed 96.8 lb. first thing this morning (after peeing). Lowest I've been in a long time. Maybe adding extra miles to my run is helping or maybe it's finally finishing my stupid period. Might have to gain though if I get below 95 lb. Then, my husband usually does notice, not to mention my psychiatrist will put me on the scale. :wacko: , and he was already talking hospital or Remeron (evil drug) when I weighed 100, 101, something like that. Our insurance is weird right now though because my husband started a new job Jan. 1, and he doesn't get benefits until he has been working there 60 days. So I guess we will be paying through the nose for COBRA for the crappy insurance he got as a high school teacher. But I'm on a lot of medications; without any insurance, it would be astronomical. Health insurance in the U.S. sucks so much.


That’s amazing! If you don’t mind me asking, how many cals do you eat to have the energy to do that? And how long have you been running? I haven’t run more than 14 miles yet but my usual “long run” is 12 miles. Do you run outside or inside?

it's been awhile since you felt right, 

but the warm nights are coming soon 

and you'll be just fine,

you'll be just fine.

I hope no-one minds me slinking into this thread. I am at the beginning of my first marathon training cycle. I started running two years ago and ran a couple of halfs last year and have two full marathons locked in for this year. I had a few injuries and a bout of laziness late last year so it has been hard to build mileage again. The plan I am following for my first (local, small) marathon is fairly low mileage because I am focusing on building mileage and being smarter with strength workouts which is a good lead in to my main marathon in July which I plan to follow a more intensive plan.

 

Sorry for the essay! It is hot as hell in Australia at the moment which makes it hard to be motivated esp for my long runs but I'm doing it.

How is everyone else doing with running?  For those just starting, couch to 5K is great and then there was another app I used to get to running 10K.  After that, I just added mileage on my own, but you have to be careful and not overdo it.  Once, I got runner's knee from overdoing, and that was awful.  I am so grateful it healed.  My husband got it too (he ran in grad school) and it comes back every time he runs, so he can't run any more.  He is thin but tall (6'4").


Plan on doing a cumulative 6.6 miles tomorrow in about 1 hr , two sessions but I have to push a stroller for the first one and ill be on my own the second.

Kudos to you doing this all with kids!! I’m trying to get back on track with my restricting too. Trying to stay under 1000 cals and trying to eat low carb bc that keeps my cals down usually lol

That’s amazing! If you don’t mind me asking, how many cals do you eat to have the energy to do that? And how long have you been running? I haven’t run more than 14 miles yet but my usual “long run” is 12 miles. Do you run outside or inside? 

Actually, I don't restrict much.  So I do eat anywhere from 1500, 1800, maybe 2000 cal/day, it depends.  I don't really count calories; I count miles.  I am losing weight fast doing this as this morning I weighed 95.2 lb.  I am going to have to gain some soon, or my psychiatrist is going to be freaking out.  I wish I had my old psychiatrist back, but she's retiring, that's life.  

 

Anyway, I don't usually eat breakfast beforehand, but some days (like today), I will have a teaspoon of peanut butter (regular creamy) beforehand.  It depends how I'm feeling.  I'm running my body to the ground, and I got a yeast infection from the antibiotic I was on for strep.  Pretty much the side effects paperwork said you'd get diarrhea (yep, got that) and likely a vaginal yeast infection if you are a woman.  And I'm already prone to yeast infections to start with, eat non-fat Greek yogurt daily, but it did no good.

 

I run outside.  What about you?  I find outside, it is easier to accumulate miles; you can change up your route so as not to get bored.  I have several options of ways I can run through my neighborhood and the connecting east part of my same neighborhood.  Though you do have to account for the fact that I live near Houston.  The land is flat and not that high above sea level.  So hills do not exist here.  The hardest running you get is running into a heavy wind or rain running (but I don't like to do that, it fries the electronics).  Running on the roads & sidewalks after rain is trickier though (much less traction, a lot harder work).  It rains here quite a lot and can rain a staggering amount at times.  There are a couple parks I can run through; one is part of the city parks & recreation and has water fountains; I like that one best.  

 

I don't know how I got up to 14 miles.  I think my longest run was 16.  I think first I broke it up into 2 runs: 8 miles and 6 miles, then started adding on the 8 miles.

 

Yesterday and today, I only ran 12 miles.  I really want to run longer, but this stupid yeast infection is only slightly better after 2 days of Monistat.

 

Oh, but my weight has gone down a lot.  I was 99, 100  lb. before this.

 

I don't know how well to trust Fitbit's assertion of calories burned, but most days, I end up around 2500; once close to 3000.  And I don't binge, but some days, like today, I just have to eat a bit more to be less tired.  Yesterday, I took a nap, and my alarm didn't go off, and I was not there to pick my daughter up from school and not answering my cell phone because it was in a room across the house.  So not good at all.  I think her teacher was perturbed at me though I think she suspects I probably have an eating disorder; she is the teacher who leads the walkers in my daughter's grade outside, and I pick my daughter up as a walker, so yeah, yesterday, was bad, my husband was all panicked, sending the parents of one of my daughter's friends to check on me though I woke up before they got here (thank God).  Everyone was concerned, not just because I am bipolar (type I, with mixed features) but because last Feb. 14, I had a symptomless ulcer perforate.  Meaning I didn't know I had the ulcer in the first place and couldn't treat it.  That is a life or death situation.  It was not ED-related; it was caused by overuse of NSAIDs and a bacterial infection (worst pain of my life, lost 10 lb. in the hospital, and the brought the ED roaring back).

I run both outside and on a treadmill, but I prefer outside MUCH more. However, I live in Pennsylvania, so the winters can be rough. It’s very cold outside right now (33 degrees) so running outdoors can be miserable lol. So most times around this time of year I resort to the treadmill which kind of sucks. I can only run 10 at most on the treadmill and even that’s tough. What I like about the treadmill is I can keep my speed up though. But I love running outdoors. I love being outside in general and I love taking different routes and kind of exploring.

Oh wow, sorry to hear about the situation yesterday! You can definitely afford to eat tons with that mileage! And I’m sure it’s difficult to eat enough to keep your energy up.

What is the brand of blister balm you are talking about?  I still have a couple (just moderately painful) from breaking in new shoes.  I find even taking Tylenol before running helps some with the blister pain.  I can't take NSAIDs because of that perforated ulcer.  If you do take an NSAID, be careful about it.  Those warning are not a joke.  But I had a medication fro fibromyalgia that was an NSAID.  I'm sure I knew that at the beginning, but I'd been taking it years and completely did not remember it was an NSAID., so I continually took it daily alone with things like Excedrin a foew days a week for sinus or tension headaches.

 

Also, Savannah, you can try those special blister band-aids from Band-Aid or many stores have generics too.  They have them for heels, toes, etc.  I think I have used the heels most.  They do halep a more than taking a painkiller.  They are a bit on the pricey said though.  Can't remember the exact price, but you only get around 6 of them per box.

Tomorrow might be a walking day or a day off.  We'll see how I feel.
