Just 5km’s in to my 13.7km run home I started to feel pretty terrible. Legs feeling shaky and not wanting to run anymore. I’ve been reading that this is possibly an iron deficiency as I lead a mainly vegetarian lifestyle. Not sure though. Or am I fat burning?? I have no idea.
Instead of jacking my run in like last week I decided to walk kilometre number 6 which I did in just over 8 minutes and I felt ok again. Today was a slow recovery run and I was trying to maintain 5 minute km’s. I ended up averaging 5.04’s in the end. Possibly went a little too quick at the start but felt fine once I was home. It’s a mystery why I’ve been feeling funny.
Tomorrow morning I’m going to hit the park for 4 x 2km repeats with 600m recovery. If I can hit 7 minutes for each rep I’ll be a happy man. Possibly a little too ambitious at this stage though.
