I do not know what has happened to me! I have been doing well, running 3.5 miles in 35 mins and just generally enjoying my runs. The last two runs, particularly tonight's, have been rubbish!
I went out tonight and didn't even manage a mile then had to stop, I just could not breathe. I am still struggling to breathe now, my chest is wheezing like I have smoked 20 fags (something I have not done for three years)
Now I know all the usual "good runs, bad runs" stuff, I have written it on other people's blogs often enough. But I really feel my fitness has gone backwards and I cannot pinpoint why. I was not pushing to hard, in fact my pace was well down when I stopped, I do not feel ill, I am perplexed as to why I suddenly cannot run.
I feel like a junkie who can no longer get high, I really want to run but my lungs would not have it. There is nothing worse than the long walk back from a failed run. Help, I need a group hug
