Can anyone help? I am a 44 yr old woman who has come into running laterly - and now find myself entering in various races and have been pleased up until now with my results (first half marathon last year 1 hr 56, best 10k 50mins and 10mile race last year 1 hr 26)..however this year I find as I train for the 10 mile race again that I am really struggling - both with pace (following a smartcoach schedule based on best 10k time) and also on the long run days I am yawning by midday and ready for bed at 5pm (impossible with kids!). Does anyone else suffer from this tiredness after a tough session??? Any clues - what I could be doing to boost my motivation (the race is next weekend and I don't feel anything like ready even tho I am doing all the schedule miles - just not the pace!).....and any clues about the total knackeredness I seem to be feeling???
