I started to run my pace much faster than my target knowing that I'll gradually slowdown at the end, but I began to slow down a lot as I had no energy left. I ate some pasta last night, but it wasn't enough. I want to fill up with the complex carbohydrates, but my family has for many years been against carbs of any sort and so the dietary change is as difficult as pulling teeth.
Ran at a 6:42 pace but wanted to run below 6:00. I started out good: first k was 5:45, the next 500 m was a cool 2:12, and then I ran through about 2 k of poured concrete! I did feel like I was pushing myself, but to hit a wall after 1.5 k? I am on a calorie reduced diet, but I don't believe it's that reduced.
