So….I skipped my run on Saturday morning. I had a really bad nights sleep the night before, and somewhere to be at 10am, so I skipped it, with plan on running today (sunday).
Well I ran this morning. My schedule called for a 5k. I was all set to do this cute blog post about my 5k race recap, but I left the cord for my camera at work! So, I guess instead of a “race” recap…I’ll just do a regular post.
But…here is a picture from my “5k” last year. I think the race was actually 2.4 or 2.6 miles since it had been mismarked.
So I set my Nike+ iPod to 5k, and set off. I looked down at my pace, and saw 6.00. My first thought was that my Nike+ was all out of wack, because I was CERTAINLY NOT running sub 7 minute miles. And then it dawned on me that it was tracking my minutes per kilometer. haha. Apparently my brain was a little slow on the uptake.
here are my stats:
Pace: 8.01Km/mi or aprox 12.9 min/mil
Temp outside: 36 degrees.
I’ll be honest…this run got a little tough for me around mile 2.3. I had a terrible sideache, so I walked for about a minute trying to stretch it out. It felt a little better, and by the time that I only had half of a mile to go the pain was gone.
What do you do when you get a sideache or a stitch in your side? Is there something to do that prevents them?
