Having tackled a new and more demanding route so successfully on Friday morning, I set off full of confidence on the same route today. I have to say that even 10 mins in to my run, I was wondering if I should have taken 1 more day recovery! Anyway, with my new positive attitude I just pushed on, up the hill (which felt much harder) and in fact covered more ground in the 28mins than I thought I would. Yes, it was hard, but I felt as though I took it steady. However, when I stopped running I felt quite dizzy for about 4/5 mins and a little bit faint. This has never happened before, although I am someone who gets vertigo sometimes when I'm tired. It was warm this morning, it did feel harder and I also wonder if the running for longer distances before breakfast is such a good idea? I do love the early mornings and tend to just have a small drink and half a banana before setting off, but maybe I need to rethink? Any thoughts or advice? If it happens again I think I will pop to the doctors. Was feeling so upbeat but now feel quite disappointed.😒
