I'm no expert, but it sounds like you might be running too fast? Have you tried pulling the pace back a bit? When I started running in November, I went slow and built the speed up - I was at a ten minute mile maybe a few weeks ago, start of March - mind, I was starting from being well and truly overweight...
The only time I've felt a bit like you describe was when I tried to tank it up a hill a too hard a pace - back of my head went tingly, and I knew I had to reign it in...
Chicken farm, I quite like my crap runs. They make all the other ones even better by comparison.
And you mention 'interesting' podcasts. Any recommendations? I don't really know my way around iTunes - I've only just updated my iPod for the second time since I bought it about 5 years ago.
Nykie: crap runs. Not my thing.
I don't do I-Tunes myself but go for the stuff from the BBC. I guess here in Switzerland you learn to apreciate the good old BBC for its mostly quality stuff.
I go here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/podcasts
I like the documentaries or newshour or "from our own correspondent" all on the World Service.
I also don't mind "thinking aloud" on bbc 4
I have kids and all and enjoy just to turn off and let myself catch up on the world news or on some kind of interesting topic. Just listened to one on an Irish matchmaker... very funny.
