Found: 1 wall

Yesterday. With about 3km to go in my 31.5km run I found a wall and promptly ran into it. Until then I was feeling really good for the whole run and then BAM out with the easy fast stride and in with the Cliffy Young shuffle. I think it might have something to do with the 18km run I did on Friday with a fairly heavy pack. Anyway, I'm glad I was able to run through the wall and finish my run. Legs have recovered well which is a good sign. Had an early night too (last night not Saturday night when I stayed up and watched the cricket/cycling/rugby). Looking forward to a 35 odd km training run with my trailblazer team on Sunday

what exactly does it feel like to hit the infamous wall?? Is it like a drop in blood sugar?

A bit like that, but with a fair bit more pain involved. In my case I think it was due to sustaining too high a pace through the middle of my run and some residual fatigue from the run on Friday. It's good to go too far sometimes so that you know your boundaries.
