Hi everyone, I've started running again over the past six months after a few years off due to physical and mental injury (won't go into it). However over the past month i have lost all power in my legs. I can't do any speed work, legs just won't 'go', and I can only manage really slow runs (10min/mile).
Before getting back into eric's training I may have been pushing too hard for six months: looking back most of my runs were tempo runs, vo2 max runs. I just loved being able to run again and went fast. Even my longs run in hindsight were too fast.
Could this be some sort of burnout? I have a lot of pain in my calves around the sides.
I do strength training 2-3 times a week so don't think it's that.
Has anyone else been through this? Tips for getting through?
