I've really enjoyed reading the daily posts since I started this challenge, but haven't felt the need to ask for help - until now!
As a non-sporty type, I've been amazed that I've managed to run for 25 mins and everything was going to plan ....until the run I've just come back from. This was wk7r3 and as I've already done a couple of 25 mins, this should have been quite straightforward. However, I never got into a rhythm and after 15 mins I got a stitch and started to feel sick and lightheaded. I just had no energy and had to walk for 5 mins before managing a couple of minutes as a pathetic flourish at the end!
I normally do my run first thing in the morning, so this was my first evening run - so might that explain my lagging energy levels? I'm so disappointed as I'd been achieving all the targets so far - but now my confidence has been knocked and I'm beginning to question whether I will make it to the end!
Why was my 3rd 25mins run so much harder than the 1st?
