Easy 7. Like the last 5 or six runs I've done I started feeling good. But as I continued my legs felt like dead weight. Same for yesterday's race and every other run lately. I thought it could be that my shoes were done for...which they are but it feels more like dehydration. No matter how much water I drink, I still am having the feeling. I know it's not just the humidity and heat. Afterall, I've been running in that since May. This all started when I started taking my Zyrtec for my allergies...something about it dries me out to the point where I feel like ass on my runs. I'm going to stop taking it for awhile and see how I feel. If I find out that it's the meds I will suffer through allergy season without them. We'll see how I feel.
Update: After doing some research, I've decided to stop taking the Zyrtec for awhile and then try loratadine, better known as Claritin. The side effects are different for these drugs so I'll see if that works with my running.
