Warning - this post might contain too much information! You've been warned.
My legs felt really tired before I even started the warm up this morning which wasn't an auspicious start to what should have been an easier day than the last of the week 5 runs on Friday. Today I even got a stitch during the first 5 minute run, and I certainly wasn't going faster than normal, and it was down hill. I blame my hormones.
Every 4 weeks I feel knackered, get lower back ache, stomach cramps, loose bowels and generally feel bad tempered. The running's great for the mood but I know this week's going to be hard work. I read on an old post that some ladies do week 6 run 1 on the approach to, and during their period. Does anybody else have any suggestions to beat the hormones?
