    I've been running for a few months but in the last few weeks I've felt a lot more tired on my runs than I used to and I don't know what's changed. I've got cross country trials soon so what could I do to get back to my best?

    How many days a week do you train? You might be over-reaching, so a deload of some sort or might help you recuperate.

    A deload week always helps with running.

    I noticed this when I went on holiday for a week, came back and on my first run I felt so fresh and ran a lot faster than I was doing.

    I run 3-4 times a week but I'm also playing a lot of football rugby and karate

    Thanks I'll try resting as much as I can and I'll see if it improves

    I'd cut back to running twice a week for a while and see how you feel. Remember that the training it's self is just breaking you down, recovery is where you adapt and progress.

    Yeah I try to use Saturday as a rest day where I'll do absolutely no sport so I can recover but I probably am doing too much too soon. I'll be sure to try cutting down my training though.

    Thanks for the advice

    I like how you say over-reach and not over-train.

    That's subtle, but important. I like you. As others have said, cut down the training volume/intensity and see how you feel. What is your eating like OP?

    Thanks mate. The term 'over-training' is thrown around way too much. People don't realise it is a serious medical condition where if you experience it you may well need to be put in hospital.

    Recently I've been trying to cut down sugar so maybe that's a factor? For breakfast I'll have oats with berries and sometimes a coffee a sandwich at lunch mostly since I have clubs a fruit and something sugary when I get home and then dinner varies but it's nearly always a good mix of carbs protein and fruit/veg

    You could be doing all your runs too hard? Generally, and especially if you're running frequently, the majority of your running should be easy and not stressful. If you're doing lower frequency then you can get away with (and kind of need) higher intensity to stress the body enough.

    Yeah I noticed that so I tried to do some recovery runs. Perhaps I'm not doing enough.
