So pleased to report I found out what the problem was. After tracking my food on myfitnesspal for a week turns out 1) Not eating enough calories to maintain weight 2) Diet was really low on potassium. One of the issues with low potassium is muscle fatigue. So having upped my banana /almonds/yogurt/milk intake ( hopefully sorting both issues out ) I've just been on a lovely 5m run and really enjoyed it. I've been lucky in that I have never been overweight so never paid any attention to calories before , simply eating regular meals, snacking when hungry - and aiming for 'healthy' food. The food logging part has really opened up my eyes in a nutritional way and simply eating plenty of fruit and veg with not much rubbish was not quite enough to get me through. Hope your all good out there, x
