comment Taking 'salt tablets' when running longer distances
It might have nothing to do with sodium loss, it could be a fatigue cramp. As the race progresses, you get tired, your form starts to go south, other muscles groups try to cover, and BAM; your muscles put the break on.

comment 179bpm Average on 5k
You should go by conversation pace when you are building up a base. If you can not hold a conversation, you probably are going to fast. Might seem slow, but not every run is a tempo/race pace run like people believe to be true.

comment I feel acidity after running
I agree, I would see a doctor to make sure that nothing else is going wrong. I got the camera shoved down my throat to make sure nothing else is wrong. You might not be feeling it when you are not running and it can lead to bigger issues. I was a silent refluxer, rarely felt it, but my throat showed the signs of a problem. Daily OTC meds and no more issues.

Who needs a book? Plenty of online resources that have plans.
