HiHi dear runners-world forumers!So 4 weeks ago I started running again after 5 months off doing any sports (not good I know) I joined a running club and now run around 3-4 times a week between 6 and 10k so 30 to 40k per week. I also changed my diet from being fat/carb rich to more proteins and vegetables + nuts and good fats. I am 1.87m high and weigh 94kg. I'd like to lose 8 more kilograms to reach my ideal weight. I am pretty athletic but realised that despite being 3-4 weeks back into training my legs always feel tired and my lungs do not seem to get any better. I ran a 10k race this WE and had to walk after km5 for 1mn prior to starting running again. My legs were absolutely killing me and so were my lungs. I really feel like I'm stagnating despite all my efforts and my change in diet and lifestyle. I ultimately want to progress, lose weight, run faster and longer to go trail running but am wondering if I'm doing the right things in the ight order. I was hoping for things to get better gradually but my legs and lungs are telling me otherwise and I feel like every run is a mission. My training is as follow: 10k Monday, track running on Tuesday, Intervals Thursday and fun 10-12krun in parks on the WE. Maybe I started running again too soon too quickly and my body has not yet had the time to adapt? What is your experience on this?
