Thank goodness its Thursday. I have tomorrow off to go explore the fairs with my parents. I might go tonight with the hubby, but it looks like rain so we may go to the gym instead and out to dinner. If we do go to the fairs tonight, I won't feel bad skipping the gym since we will be walking around for a long time.

I have the 4 mile run on Sunday so think my last run day beforehand will be tomorrow. Hopefully I can run outside in the morning, but it may have to wait to the treadmill at night

Treadmill Run

Last night, we headed to the gym after work for our 45 minute run on the treadmill. I was glad to be running indoors since it was once again warm and muggy outside.

The gym was nice and cool when we got there, but as soon as I started running, I didn't even feel it. The run was the usual 3/2 with a5 minute warm up.

The run segments felt decent until about 20 minutes in when I got a side stitch, I think I had dranken water too quickly. I ran through it until the walk segment then stretched during the walk to try to eliviate it.

It cleared pretty quickly and I continued on. I felt decent for the whole thing, except that I was really hot. I ended up doing about 43 minutes as by the time I got back from the bathroom, my husband was already 2 minutes in.

Total run 43 minutes
Total distance 2.97 miles
