Running Training

I run or do cross training almost every day, with my longer runs on the weekend. I notice that the farther I run, even when I watch what I eat after running, I weigh a good 5lbs more than I usually do and it takes almost the rest of the week to go back to my normal weight. Why is that?

It’s certainly not unusual for bodyweight to fluctuate over the course of a week and that can be due to a number of things; hydration status and hormones to name a few. For that reason I would avoid monitoring your weight on a daily basis. Once or twice a week is sufficient and try to do this at the same time of day, perhaps first thing in the morning when more variables are constant.

I've got my place in the London Marathon but we are going skiing on the 7th April for a week but I'm worried about training. How should I train during that week?
