Friday: 7.5 Mile Run!

Run Time: 1 Hour, 15 min. Run Distance: 7.5 miles Additional: 3/15 @ 70 lbs chest press

Friday a miraculous thing happened. I made it to 7.5 miles after 4 days of nothing but pain. My run started out with a bit of pain. I had the side stitch issue all the way through the first half hour. But I was pretty well determined to get to a good distance. I continued through the belly breathing stuff and just focused on the run. I had to keep my pace lower than what I'm accustomed to as well and I tried not to get too frustrated about it. My main goal was to get rid of the side stitch and be able to run longer. And miraculously somehow it worked. After half an hour of running, it disappeared. I upped my pace and then continued until I had completed 7.5 miles. I was pretty much on top of a mountain at the end of that run. I just hope they stay gone for my runs this week!! About time I get to enjoy those new shoes for what they are really worth.

Anyway, that was just a quick update. I'll blog more on Monday.

Fantastic! See, just like I said--run through it. Ok, so maybe I didn't say that but I just hate when my advice is wrong. Congrats on that long run. BTW, do you have any races coming up...any 5's or 10's?
