Did the "sherwood pines 10k",started out great,but at halfway I just stopped,felt rubbish,struggled and sorry if anybody running passed heard me swearing at myself! Walked a bit and got going again and did over min "pb" but not happy and can't work out what went wrong!!!
That does sound odd. Hitting the Wall usually means running very low on glycogen but unless you were running fasted I don't see why that could happen on a 10K. Sounds like you might have set out too hard and burnt up or perhaps have a virus.
I've found glugging away on a sports drink (full of sugar) in the time leading up to a race will guarantee a terrible run.
Sods up your blood sugar levels a treat.
I do that sometime but the main reason is I am just a crap runner
don't worry scott , its happened to m lots of times , u just got to keep going !! u did great !!
Thank you to all,I think I may have gone out a bit to fast but I did feel good before hand so though I would be ok! But I am now off work today ,very tired,no energy ,slept on and off till 11am and I normally start work at 6am! Got "notts half" next so want to get back training but not I fel like it!
Scott it was very hot and humid a little further north where I was at the weekend so might have been a factor there as well. You still fineshed mate so well done.
Hi scott ,u seem very hard on yourself ,don't be , every run isn't going to be the best ever !!! when I train sometimes its a good session and sometimes not , running is the same , put it to bed ,move on from there and look forward to the Notts half. U will be brilliant !!
U sound a bit down which can effect stamina etc , running will lift you, push stress to the side , ,get those trainers on and do it !!!!
6am is an early start !!!!
Hello. Yes i am hard on myself! Always want to do better,quicker and faster, but at 41 I forget I'm not 20 anymore! Haha.
Only started running 18/20 months ago but want to do well always!
Out tonight hooray,short run in the rain so feel better ( casey 2, you were right thanks)

Did you not realise 41 is the new 31 ? As Nike says Just do it .............
You obviously have the bugfitness its so important lol ,
