    I want to run earlier in the mornings because it’s getting too hot during the day. I don’t know if I should go before breakfast (will there be a risk of fainting/being too tired?) or after and have breakfast stupidly early.

    With restriction, I’ve gotten more tired (obviously) even though I’ve been having an average of 1200/day. Is there anything you do to be able to keep lifting, and keeping your energy? Im already drinking water, having protein powder and electrolytes 😭 Coffee and a few times a week I’ll have...

    I've been running for the past couple months but recently have been getting really painful chafing(?), but only on the TOP of my big toes.

Obviously people who drink a...

    Does running become a chore when you are underweight? Do you still get a runner's high and feel good after running or do you just feel exhausted?

    Writing this more as a personal record to look back on but also thought it might be useful for others who are interested in this form of exercise.
