i totally agree with the overtraining comments. sounds like you're starting to fizzle out. I would take a healthy break and give yourself time to heal up and to recover. maybe even a week or so to make sure. you shouldnt have any real issues with detraining. I think some rest would really do you good.

Best bet - you are over training! Back off and see what happens. We need to give our bodies time to rebuild and recover and when we don't it's like taking 10 steps back for every one forward.

This can be a lot of things...you may be overtraining, not getting enough rest, sick, not having proper fuel, reacting to temperatures...there's so much this can be attributed to!

I recommend you go for a physical if possible just to rule out that it isn't anything major and in the meantime keep a running log and record things like how much sleep you got the night before, what the weather or temperature conditions are, your stress level, etc.

I know that when my puppy started really dragging on my runs, my heartrate would immediately skyrocket because it stressed me out dragging her along. Once I stopped taking her with me, my HR has been steady as she goes!

And of course - take care of yourself! Never push past the point of comfort!!!!

I run several times a week and for the past two weeks I have noticed that I am absolutely STRUGGLING to keep up with my "normal" pace. I used to be able to run at 7.2 mph on the treadmill for a mile or more, now I can barely do 45 seconds. If I slow it down to 6.5 or even 6, I find myself sucking wind and my heartrate is shooting to above my max ceiling in less than a minute. Even running outside is horribly slow. I cannot attribute my body's sudden slow down to anything in particular. I want my old speed back. Any suggestions?
