I'm a target member who has somehow managed to bag herself a place in the London Marathon!

I am a target member, but not a marathon runner!
You can have extra healthy extras to maintain your weight when at target, and you will be using up more calories anyway, with your training.
It might just be a case of making sure that you weigh yourself once a week/ attend group, to keep things in check while seeing what works for you and basically what you can get away with.
