So I've managed to do Weeks 1 - 6 no problemo, and am actually really starting to like running. I inadvertently managed to sign up to a half marathon in April which is why I started.
I've had some pain in my shins since about week 2 that I've put down to shin splints and hoping it clears up on its own. (its not that bad)
However today I attempted Week 7 Day 1. 5 minutes in I was so done. Laura helpfully was like "you should be getting into a good pace now, keep going!" But I literally couldn't go any further. I was all achey, my breathing was already like I'd done 20 minutes and I had like no energy whatsoever. In the previous 25 minute run I was like a bit tired by 10 minutes, able to continue to 20 minutes then push myself to run really fast for the last 5 minutes.
I usually run after 5pm, but today I went around lunch time (I hadn't had lunch first, I know not to run for at least two hours after eating.) I also tried a different route just to mix things up, but that doesn't seem to have gone down well.
I'm going to retry on my normal route and normal running slot tomorrow, but in the mean time any ideas on what caused today's disaster?
