Hello all, ive got my first ever race on 7th Sep and its a 10k at Sutton Park, Birmingham. Ive been running for a couple of months now but only in gym on treadmill, when i started i cud only run for 2mins then couldnt breath and had to stop now i go the gym 3-4 times per week run for half hour slow with 5 mins here and there fast, and i do some crosstraining, weights and cycling too so i was feeling pretty confident.
My boyfreind got me out of bed at 6.30am this morning and took me on a run for real 'SCARY OR WOT' after a couple of mins i had to stop and catch my breath and this happened throughout the half hour we were out. So there i was thinking i was good enough to do it and now im havin palpitations every time i think of race. What went Wrong??
i did go the gym last night for 1hr 45mins and worked out hard could this have caused me to completely lose my breath after just a couple of mins running though? Im also 2.5 stone overweight but wouldnt this affect me on treadmill as well?
Any answers will be very appreciated thanks
