Re: Running affecting eating/what are you eating?

I hadn't linked to the programme, but yeah my appetitie has reduced lately too... odd. Swimming makes me ravenous! If I eat within hours before going for a run I tend to get a stitch.

Re: Outside V Treadmill

From being fairly unfit I was able to run 25 mins without needing a break and then could carry on... getting that buzz where you feel you could just keep going and going. Its a great high after the run too...
