Energy one day, gone the next???

Hey people. I'm baffled about why one day I can run with great energy and feel like I could keep going, then the very next day, or next running workout not necessarily the next day, I have zero energy right when I start running after my walking warm up, feels like my knees joints are so dry, brittle, and actually feels like they might crack into powdery pieces like an old skeleton, and I have to stop and get off the treadmill, and there my workout goes. Does anyone experience this? It's very frustrating, and I don't understand why it happens. Also, do you guys have any suggestions on an alternate workout to try when this does happen? Or how to prevent this from happening in the first place? Thanks a bunch,,

Do you do any strength training? On days when you don't feel like running you can do weights and resistance work. Also squats and lunges will strengthen your quads, gluts and hamstrings which will make your running better.

I have the same problem but figured it just might be somewhat age related for me anyway.

Being really hydrated might help plus, personally, I take naproxen a lot of days for joint pain about an hour before I excersise, seems to help.

Re: Energy one day, gone the next???

So, first it's great that you are doing strength training in addition to cardio... that's the only way you will ultimately make a difference.
As to your no energy- are you taking supplements (you should if you're very active), are you eating throughout the day (I hope so), do you eat carbs (if you want results you should be), are you stretching (you shouldn't), are you running before or after your strength training (after will definitely effect your energy). There are many factors that can play into energy levels. Just take a look at what you're doing throughout the day and your workout and see what you can change.

Aways when you start, first time is the worst and you feel like your done.
Don't worry give it some time but don't stop training, even if its not 100% of your normal day.
