Do the Couch to 5k running plan (read all 30 entries…)

It’s just not going well for me at the moment. Ran about 12 minutes today before suffering with another stitch and feeling so tired that I couldn’t go on. I seem to get a stitch when I concentrate on my breathing, and I only concentrate on my breathing when I’m worried about getting a stitch.

I’m getting very annoyed, and wondering how on earth I managed 28 minutes constant running twice just a week ago.

I’m just going to put an axe in this week and start again on Monday morning, see if I can do any better.

6. I love hopeless romances, even though I’m not sure that true love actually exists in the real world.
7. I hated cats, until I owned one. Now I can’t live without one.
8. I love to travel. Just wish it didn’t cost so much.
9. The Outlander series is my favourite set of books. It’s being made into a TV series next year.
10. I love sending and receiving postcards. It’s such a thrill to get a nice surprise in the post. I’m an avid postcrosser.

Do the Couch to 5k running plan (read all 30 entries…)

Well that was a disaster. I’d run for 7-8 minutes and then got a really blindingly painful stitch in my stomach. I’ve run before with a stitch but this one was bad and after about 30 seconds I had to start walking. I kept trying to run again when I thought the stitch was gone but it came back with a vengeance. Which is especially annoying because both my legs and my lungs felt fine. I really had today down as a 30 minute run too. Nothing was different than my last run, so I have no idea why that stitch was so painful. I might go out again this afternoon / evening because that was barely more energetic than a walk to / from work.
