Half marathon training temporarily derailed
I did run 4 times last week, but a couple of them were more run/walks since my dad offered to go with me.
I have a 10k coming up, and I can no doubt finish it (but maybe not with a great time), and I hope to get things back on track this week and next.
The problem is I am just SO tired and sleepy, even when I think I get enough sleep. This happens even when i take a 2 day break from running. This happens even after a run, when I should feel energized.
I’m thinking it might be something missing in my diet – any suggestions?
Or maybe I’m just not getting as much sleep as I thought. I am just at a loss. I didn’t set an alarm this morning and woke up naturally around 7 a.m. Yet I was drowsy off and on all day and when I arrived home, I really couldn’t imagine getting out and running.
I know sometimes I need to make myself power through it, but I also want to listen to my body.
