I've always preferred to run early in the morning, between 5.30 and 6.30 maybe, because I'm a bit of a 'morning person' (and enjoy feeling pleased with myself for the rest of the day!).
But I've been really struggling lately, getting much more out of breath than I think I used to, and having to walk a bit (can no longer manage more than 10 mins without a walk before the next run).
I'm wondering if it's humidity - I've noticed to my surprise that although it's much cooler early in the morning, the humidity showing on the BBC app is usually upwards of 75% - is that high? It seems to get lower through the day, I didn't realise that.
Any advice very welcome! This morning I just decided to listen to my body and when I felt really puffed out (or at one point felt sick!) I walked until I got my breath back a bit. Feels disappointing though.
