I am now almost 3 weeks into my hiatus from running and weight lifting due to my recent running injury. I fully expected to have my weight loss completely halt if not start to creep up a little bit as I adjusted my food intake to counteract my lack of exercise. The complete opposite is what is actually taking place. I have started to lose at a little faster pace than I was currently.
Over the past almost 3 weeks I have lost almost 3 pounds. I am feeling good and the injury is feeling a little better every day. The question is: am I actually losing fat, or am I just quickly losing muscle weight because of the lack of activity over the past few weeks.
I am sure once I start running again it will not take long to see if what I was losing was muscle or fat, so until that time I guess I will just continue to do what I am currently doing.
