Need some help and advice.....
Graduated last spring and then due to injury had to start again last November.
Re graduated 8th March this year and was chugging along ok.
My aim is to run 5.5 miles on my 55th birthday, really don't know where I got the idea, but there you are.
I'm 55 in September.
I have been doing 2 x 30 minute runs a week and one "longer" run, which I've managed to get up to 40 minutes.
If I increase my time by about 3 or 4 minutes a week I should reach my goal.
All very logical and sensible EXCEPT....the last few weeks my fitness is diminishing!
Stitch, out of breath, heavy legs, complete lack of motivation, whats the point sort of feelings...
Ran ( jogged) for 30 minutes this morning and it felt terrible again,
Sorry to moan but it seems to be getting harder and harder, not easier like last year when I did it.
