Just wondering if anyone out there has had this experience? I am an avid runner running 5 days/week 4-10 miles/day. I do a combo of speed work, recovery runs and long runs. I lift heavy 5 days/week. I may throw an occasional bike, swim or evening walk as well. I saw no difference in my running until yesterday (day 4). I was doing intervals and my legs would start burning with fatigue shortly into the accelerations. I was not able to finish the intervals and almost needed to walk the cool down. I went out for a recovery run today and had the same burning, dead wobbly feeling and needed to run/walk. I felt like I was at mile 24 of a marathon the whole entire 5 mile. An absolute shambles!! No energy left to lift today. My Question: Will this improve? I have read that it is normal to feel fatigued when exercising while your body gets used to using fat as fuel. How long does this last?? I'm not training for anything right now so it's not that big of a deal but I don't want to lose fitness either. HELP! ( I reviewed the meal template and my meals/pre work out/post work out are on target)
