im in a bit of a panic/state of confusion.
I'm 5 weeks from a mara and my training's gone really well. I got to 15 miles on my training plan a few weeks ago with no problem, but it's kind of been downhill from there. I've been doing a lot of cross training and just under two weeks ago was really sick after a gym sesh. I've not felt at all right since, so gave myself 4 days off over the bank holiday. I went for an ok-ish swim on Tuesday morning, very bad short run on weds afternoon and then a good spinning sesh yesterday morning. Then today I went out for a 15mile trail run and couldn't get to 4 - it felt like id never run before! I felt sick, lightheaded, knackered and like my body was made of lead. Needless to day I had to walk back to the car. I'm sleeping ALOT because I just can't stay awake - 3-5 hour naps and full nights.
Anyone ever had this before? And, if so, what did you do??
