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!!!

Hi Scott, did you go out too fast or put too much pressure on yourself?

If I get carried away at the start I'm struggling towards the end.

Sorry cannot be of any more help.

Sounds like a pacing issue
What time were you aiming for?
What pace did you run the first five k ?

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.

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.

thanks all

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) 

yeah 6am start but finish at 2pm!

Did you not realise 41 is the new 31  ? As Nike says Just do it .............

You obviously have the bugfitness its so important  lol  ,

18/20 months ? and you are running half marathons , be proud lol very proud .....

Its good in the rain, snow maybe not so good  

2pm is good , make sure you get plenty of sleep though ,body needs to recover especially starting at that time .

Kick stress in to touch with a good run and a smiley face
