Day 11- Running is impossible


Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I'm on day 11 and it's going great (except for one slip up thanks to some life stress).

I'm enjoying my meals and feeling super satisfied, etc...


I've started doing crossfit and I love the workouts. However, as a triathlete, I also love my cardio - especially running.


However, I've found that over the past 2 days, running has felt like total crap! My legs feel like concrete and my mental endurance to "just keep running" is non-exisistant. Is this normal? Will it pass?

I love running, but not when I feel like I'm struggling just to jog along. Any suggestions?

Thanks for your reply's..


Pre workout I'm eating either a hard boiled egg or some coconut butter and a small peice of chicken.

However, some of my am runs have been fasted and I basically feel like a cinder block!

My carbs have been a bit lower - just due to my veggie choices - but I do try to get in a sweet tater every day.
