Thanks for the responses! I have to say it was the heat. I really underestimated it's impact! Before the triple digit temps, we had a few cool days here and I was back to running my regular mileage. So, I'm just going to be patient with myself and continue walk/run workouts until I can run in the heat, or fall comes. My biggest challenge is to not slide back in my efforts. But, I feel confident I'll maintain.

This is my year and I'm not giving up on the running. I've had too many false starts, with time constraints, babies, illness, but this time it will happen. My goal is to be able to run 3 miles, non-stop and consistently. It is mine to have!!!!

After you exhausted your body once it needs recovering. And you are right, the heat, plus the minerals you sweated out when running in the first please weaken you.

When my body repsonds that way its usually because of overtraining.

Also keep in mind that during reg training, its hard to recreate that adrenalin rush that you get in actually attending an event/competition. No doubt that lil extra pushed you harder than normal.

Feed yourself good proteins & carbs. Take care of any health conditions. Drink plenty of water a day to rid your body of the toxins & free radicals that the run caused. Get plenty of quality sleep. Give yourself a little break from running/jogging.

Also the after care you give yourself on race day can be a factor in recovery as well.

Give the leg muscles some time to recover properly and regrow.

Try to vary your workouts.

Good Luck.

Hi! I ran my 5k on Memorial Day and I haven't been able to run that far since. I'm trying to take the heat into account, and I did battle a bout with bronchitis, but I'm not sure what's happening. Anybody else have this happen to them?
