oh my! another fichtel!
have you ever seen this?
someday I will run that.
sorry to hijack the thread.
Yesterday noon I had an awesome run around Lake Harriet in Mpls: I felt on top of the world, I found a rhythm and stuck with it, I didn't have to stop and walk once, etc.
Well, this morning I decided to do an "easy" run of about 2 miles around my house (the flattest course I could come up with). Not two blocks into it, I got a side stitch which stayed with me the entire way. I cut the route short (ended up being about 1.75 miles), but it was really disappointing and difficult. I was in such a great place yesterday, and now I'm so discouraged.
I know that everyone has bad runs, but I'm trying to figure out why it went so badly. Usually, if I run first thing in the morning, I have a small bite to eat. Today I only had a few gulps of water, put on my contacts and running shoes, and went out. Also, should I have waited longer after my run yesterday? I haven't yet worked up to running consistently every day, since I find that I run much easier with a rest day or two in between.
Oh well. Tomorrow: active rest (elliptical at the gym), Friday: back on the sidewalks!
