I did week 6 run 1 yesterday and it was tiring. To be fair I had been at a festival from Thursday to Monday...sleeping in a tent, regular eating out of the window and drinking too much beer. But I'd had 10 days off before going into week 5 and found that fine.
My breathing after the second run was really laboured even though it was at my usual pace and I had to slow down for the final run. I just felt so tired at the end of it, normally even though I'm sweating and 'worked out' at the end of a run I feel energized and have a spring in my step on the way home....this time I pretty much dragged myself back and didn't have the usual post-run smiley feeling.
Is this what people are talking about when they say week 6 is the most difficult? Or was it just me sweating out the hangover? Any tips for approaching tomorrow's run 2 gratefully received.
