If you weren't getting sufficient calories, you would lose weight. If your weight is stable, then you are getting an adequate number of calories.
Here are some things that I do as a male: * Eat a big breakfast. For me, this is OJ, raisin bran cereal, skim milk, nonfat yogurt, and banana. This is my daily carbo loading. * Wait about 3 to 4 hours before running at midday. * Eat two bagels and a diet soda immediately after the run. This is my daily carbo replacement. * Usually eat two bagels and a diet soda about an hour before dinner. * Weigh myself daily to see if I should eat more or less bagels.
I'm 54, male, 158 lb, run 200+ miles/month. I agree with you that gaining weight now will be counterproductive towards running a good fall marathon.
