Slow it down for now till your body adjusts. Also, how's your diet? Are you getting enough "good" carbs to keep up with your new energy demands? Finally, has it been hot? The heat will sap your energy, and you need to keep well hydrated. Many runners are chronically dehydrated which leave you feeling drained.
Stick with it till you find what works!
Don't worry about how many miles everyone else runs. Just increase slowly and enjoy yourself.
The Logic of Long Distance
E.J.Greater Lowell Road RunnersCry havoc and let slip the dawgs of war!May the road rise to meet you, may the wind be always at your back, may the sun shine warm upon your SPF30, may the rains fall soft upon your sweat-wicking hat, and until you hit the finish line may The Flying Spaghetti Monster hold you in the hollow of His Noodly Appendage.
I ran 4.5 miles Monday night and right now I don't feel like hitting the street again. Very low energy. Any suggestions on how to get my distance up a bit, without feeling so crappy?
