W7D1

Another 25-minute run down, 2 to go! I did a little better than last time and covered 1.75 miles at a 14:17 pace. I am hoping to push it a little more on Tuesday and cover 2 miles, then 2.25 on Thursday. We'll see.

I did 45 minutes of yoga on Saturday and 20 this morning; that really helped get rid of the soreness and made tonight's run much better. I biked 4 miles yesterday, then went swing dancing; I was afraid that would make my legs sore again, but I guess the yoga this morning helped. I really need to remember that and do it more often, especially now that I have increasingly long runs ahead.

I was a bit rushed during this run, and probably did not control my breathing as well as I should have because I got a side stitch on the left towards the end of the run. I've never had one on that side before. I remembered reading that putting your arms up helps, so I was running with my arms in the air because I refused to stop. It did help and I finished the run.

I am really loving my new Garmin watch and all the awesome data it give me.
