I am a bit annoyed tonight as I went out for my first run of the week and although the mind was willing, my little legs just would not carry me - it felt awful, not to mention it's rubbish
I have been running since about April this year and at the moment, I do 15-20 miles a week. Over the past couple of weeks, I had some great runs, last week I even did 5 miles Tue-Thur ... and they were those great ones where you feel like you could go on and on. I do 5ks when I am short on time or doing hill work/fartlek but I usually do 7k + four times a week.
I was going for a 5 miler today but could barely do 5k! I haven't run since last Thursday (Christmas things have got in the way!) so it's not like I am not rested. I do eat well - healthy and little and often - so it's not that I am not 'fuelled'. Oh and sorry if this is too much information for the gents out there but I am currently having my 'monthly visitor', in fact the pill I am on at the moment makes this happen every couple of weeks at the moment, rather than monthly. I am aware this can cause iron problems so I am taking my multivits everyday. I do work full time - but it's office work so I am on my arse for most it it, it's not like I have worn myself out today on the daily grind!
Has anyone else encountered this problem, and if so, how did you deal with it? I am planning to run tomorrow after work but I don't think I will look forward to it as much as I usually do after tonight's epic fail!
