Topic - Training and weight loss

chubbs2 - on 27 Jan 2014
I've recently started training for my first marathon (have previously done a few halfs) and have upped my weekly distance from about 10 miles (which I've always done for general fitness) to about 25 miles.

Thing is I'm slightly mystified that I don't seem to be losing any weight, but staying constant. I genuinely don't think I've increased my calorie intake (even with more mileage) and if anything maybe a bit less, as I've cut down the booze a bit. The weight loss thing is not that important to me really, I just thought it might be a useful side effect that might help my climbing to be honest.

I'm approaching 50 so I wondered if it might be metabolic? Anyone got any views, apart from I'm kidding myself about the calories.

Thanks.
