Lost my stamina

Hello,
I’m fairly new to running, I have been doing it for about 10 months and have been happy with my progress. Started with the couch to 5k programme then downloaded a 10K app. I have been doing pretty well and am up to 9k in about an hour. However, for about a fortnight now I feel that I have no energy, my legs feel really heavy and I don’t know why. I haven’t been ill, no injury or anything. What do people suggest I eat or drink to boost my energy levels on running days.
Thanks very much

That can be a sign of over training, it might just be that you need to cut back on your speed or distance for the next few weeks.

I would almost be certain overtaining or mentally stale:smile: Back off a little and keep up your good consistency ,but give you body a time to heal and your mind a chance to refresh.
