My running brothers and sisters, I could use some help.
I did W6R2 today, 2x 10 mins, which I should reasonably be able to do without too many problems. However, two things happened:
1. I was practically hyperventilating at the end, even though I controlled my breathing and went slower than slow. My legs could have kept going but if I had run for much longer I think I might have got dizzy or worse.
2. I started to feel cold about halfway through the second 10 mins - and considering it's 21 degrees and dry outside it's very unlikely that this was caused by the weather.
So I'd like to know, am I ready for 25 mins? I'm really quite scared that I won't make it, and I don't take failure well (sorry, I know I'm not supposed to use that word). And has anyone ever felt cold like this during a run? I did do some research but there doesn't seem to be a conclusive answer, possible causes are dehydration, anemia (caused by an iron or vitamin B12 deficiency) and tachycardia.
