You’re crushing it in a race or a long run, and then all of a sudden - BAM - you hit a wall. Your legs feel heavy, you’re all out of kick, your will to go on seems weak; even your brain feels foggy...you’ve bonked!
This is one issue almost every runner comes up against at some point - the dreaded BONK! It can happen during a race or even bring your entire training to a halt.
Whether we’re talking about a bonk in a single run, or the complete meltdown of your training effort, most runners will face a point at which they’re not sure they can continue. Either scenario can be very distressing to someone who is putting all the time and effort into training and all of a sudden seeing their hard work seemingly wasted.
