Really demoralised and want to know what went wrong. I really can't understand it.
I went out to do Week 8 run 1. I was really excited because i was going to do it in Oxford, on mainly flat going, and wanted to see if my pace was better without the hills. I could barely run for a minute or two. Legs like lead, out of breath. I had to walk/run, and gave up after less than 15 minutes. Was it the time of day? I've had that happen before running in the middle of the day. Was it because I had a cup of hot chocolate an hour before running (that's happened before too, eating and not being able to run)? Was it disturbed sleep over the last few days? Honestly, I simply had nothing in the tank. I feel as if my body has totally let me down and that I have no idea why.
The only good thing is that my pace when I did run was around 5.45min/km, which is a lot faster than when I run at home and am constantly slogging uphill. I wasn't trying to run fast, just going at an easy pace.
Maybe I should stick to running early morning or early evening.
Any ideas or advice really welcomed as I can't work it out.
