Yeah a few people have said that, I'm lucky I guess that I have been going on long works every Friday since lockdown began first time round so leg wise I dont get tired its just my lungs and that that are knackering me at the moment so once that gets trained up I should be better. Every time ive had to stop adn walk has been because of stiches and that rather than legs not wanting to work any more.


Sounds like you're doing the right things, just remember running is a process, don't do too much to soon and you will soon make progress

I went from walk run walk and 18 months later I ran sub 90 minute marathon, trust your plan and your training

Done a 14k jog, try to push myself bit by bit, even if my speed is slower.

I managed to do 17 mile yesterday. I did a half marathon last week and found myself drained. So this week for my long run I changed my diet a bit. I had two bowls of pasta the day before, and then at 5 am yesterday I woke up and made a big bowl of porridge with chia seeds. I then gave myself two hours and drank water before my jog. I definitely had more energy. But still, but still it was so so so so difficult. I averaged about 10 minute miles in the end. I also had 4 energy gels during the run.

I don't know how I'll managed 26 miles when I do the Nicosia Marathon in Feb, but just keep plodding i guess.

Is there anyone on here i can follow on Strava? I like comparing.

I went over on my ankle halfway through a 20k run yesterday, but thankfully was able to run it off over a few hundred metres and finished my run. Would have been absolutely gutted if I did myself an injury that meant I needed to take time off for a few weeks, I've been making good progress these last few months and would hate for a setback. I think I'm on track for a 1:40 half marathon soon - if only there was some flatter areas around here.

On being drained, Curls, I figure it's just part of things. I eat quite a lot, and I heard having some sugar after a big workout helps with recovery, but I'm still wiped out for the rest of the day and take it easy the following day. I don't eat or drink during my runs though, just due to hating the idea of needing to carry anything with me so just put up with it.

Not trained properly since the summer but thinking of entering a race in February or March, mostly to give myself something to look forward to tbh.
