I went out for a run today and per the 5k to 10k bridge program today's run was supposed to be a 20 minute steady run. I decided to try to increase my speed again and I managed this for the first 800 m (0.5 miles). After that I ran completely out of energy and only ended up running about 10 to 15 minutes total. Needless to say, I was miffed. So I went back inside and rested for two hours or so then I went back and tried it again (slower this time). I completed the run and at least I know I got a decent work out. I guess I'm just not quite at the fitness level I need to be in order to maintain that speed yet. I'll keep plugging at it. It also occurred to me that I had a really long work week last week and that I'm only five days into a low-carb diet. That might have contributed somewhat. 😉
