I completed week 8 this morning which I was really happy about as on run 2 I did stop and walk for a minute in the middle which made me feel a bit of a failure. I blame the hot weather but it was the first time I'd stopped in the whole programme.
Anyway, I went out today just before 8am but it was still very warm. I found my legs were fine and my breathing rhythm was fine but I felt as if I wasn't getting enough oxygen. At times I almost felt a panicky sense of suffocation, as if my lungs just weren't big enough to get enough oxygen in me. I wasn't running faster than usual so the only difference between today and other runs is the heat. Has anyone else found it harder to breathe in this lovely weather?
