So I've been running 5k comfortably for the last couple of months. Did a Park run. Not fast but comfortably completed. Was ready to extend my runs.
The last two times I've run I've had to stop after 3k. My legs are jelly and my head spins. I'm well hydrated. I'm not going very fast. I've been back with weight watchers for 3 weeks and I'm wondering if it's that! Recent Good runs have been after Chinese takeaway the night before, after fish and chips, after a meal out. Last two runs I think I was running on empty.
Does anyone else have to eat well before a run? I'm living on chicken or fish, lots of veg, fruit and yoghurt, some bread and a potatoes but not much. Some rice. Lots of eggs. I'm going to try extra bananas and a bigger meal the night before a run! 🤪🤪🤪🤪🤪
