Help Help! I’m having running issues and they’re annoying me! Somebody help me out. I’ve been training for my first 10K and I seem to have a few kinks to work out….
Problem #1 – My heart rate…
I’ve been having problems with my breathing. My time is getting faster and distance is better but I literally run out of air. My legs don’t hurt but my heart feels like it’s coming out of my chest. This week I decided to see what was going on. I borrowed my brother’s running watch and this is what I discovered. When I start struggling for air my heart rate is at 211+. This week when I started struggling it was at 204, 206, 211, 216..should I be concerned about this?
Problem #2 – Ummm…I need to pee…
So embarrassingly enough my second problem is being able to run longer than 1-1.5 miles without having to pee so bad it hurts. Mind you I go before I start and I try not to drink a lot in the hour leading up to my run. Suggestions?
Problem #3 – I’m heating up
My body temperature spikes about 15-20 degrees when I run. Is this normal? I’m thinking that my heart rate being so high could be causing this.
So my seasoned runners..any suggestions for this 10K newbie?
