Hope you don't mind me picking your brains again!
I am 49 and graduated a couple of years ago and since have been running regularly up to about 14k, however.. Last year had a string of illnesses/ injuries and stopped running. I piled on about 2 stone ( previously had lost about six using healthy eating and running)
I am now back on it, have lost a stone and entered a half marathon (September) and am running 5k twice a week and 10-14k on a Sunday. I have a busy lifestyle and ride a horse and walk my dogs as well as work in the mornings at a stables.
I just have no energy and feel that my legs never seem to recover after each run, I have never stretched but religiously do my 5 min warm up/ cool down
I eat about 1200 - 1300 calories a day, low fat, highish carb diet.
What are your thoughts? I really want to go out feeling fit for my runs!!
Thanks guys xx
