Changing Shape

Something weird is happening. Followers of this blog will know that I hold more store in losing a bit of weight rather than getting fitter as a better way of increasing speed and stamina (think bags of sugar). So I'm trying to keep under 2500 calories a day while also running most nights. The result seems to be that my waist is reducing as I've gone down two notches on my belt (no it isn't stretching) recently but haven't lost an ounce (so far).

I'm thinking that perhaps I'm putting on leg muscle with all this hill running. I've noticed a change in my running this week too. I seem to be able to handle the hills a lot better (although I still struggle with the faster boys in the GVS). I feel a lot lighter on my feet. I'll be interested to see what the weight is doing when I get home this weekend.

Doing the Ridgeway Run again this Sunday (See 2008). Suspect I'll be the only GVS runner in that one.
