I’ve seen quite a few doctors in the past few years, yet I still feel like I’m not getting any answers. Why doesn’t my running improve? Why is my VO2max going down? Should I train differently? Is there any sign that running is doing me more harm than good? ect.
I’ve been running for 3,5 years now and although I now run longer distances, my overall fitness hasn’t really improved. I’ve done 3 fitness tests over the last 3 years. All of them telling me that it was ok for me to exercise, but none of those could really tell me what was causing the issues that I have while exercising, and what would help me improve.
I was looking at all the marathon world records that there are, like fastest marathon dressed as an insect, dressed as a foot, as a nut, as a doctor or even fastest marathon while flipping pancakes or on crutches.

About a week and a half ago I had a really good run and ran a time of which I was pretty proud, but since then my runs have only gone worse. The three weeks leading up to my good run I was steadily progressing and I was happy about that.
