Marlene,

Take a look at your diet and consult a dietician for that. I'd also suggest that you go visit your doctor and see, maybe they will send you for blood tests etc. as there may be another problem you're not aware of.

Keep well,

Your diet definetly needs to be adjusted to suit your energy needs , you need to take in lots of carbohydrates and if possible eat 6-7 small meals a day to keep you going. Also training for long times can make you worn out and resting for a week won't kill you. Also try to vary your training program so you don't get bored.
