Comments: There are days when you have every intention to do well, but your body has other plans. Today was one of those those days. Mile 1 went fine 10:02, but then about the 1.5 mile mark I got some really nice side stiches and ran mile 2 in 11:23. I tried to concentrate on my breathing, but that didn’t help at all, so mile 3 was 11:53. So sad.
I noticed that depending on the time of the month my body performs differently. Just after having my period my runs are strong and I have lots of engery, but the week before my period starts it’s like trying to pull an old mare off the pastures and entering her into the K3ntucky Derby. It’s not a pretty sight.
So, I am content with my run today and I am looking forward to tomorrows group run.
