About a year ago I started eating better and started running. I think I have made great progress. I'm down 70 pounds (from 318 - 248) and ran a marathon in December. Finished a difficult course in 4:58
But my weight loss had plattued, I have decided to try Atkins low carb to drop another 30 pounds.
Short 5 and 6 mile runs have been really hard. I feel like I have no energy after a mile or two. My pace is about 2 minutes slower then it was a few weeks ago before starting low carb.
