Week 7 Run 2 yesterday. I found run 1 ok on Saturday, a bit tedious but I did it, so I was expecting much of the same yesterday evening. I got to 12.5 mins and had an awful pain above my stomach, not sure if it was a stitch, I've had stitch before but only ever in my side. Anyhow I carried on but at 15 mins I just couldn't do it, I was in so much pain I stopped. Failure
I don't know what went wrong. I was well hydrated. There are some steep hills on my run, but they've always been there so I can't really blame them! I am doing the 5:2 diet and yesterday was a fast day so I'd not eaten a bite since Sunday night, I had a banana about an hour before I set out so maybe I shouldn't have had that, or maybe I shouldn't have run on a fast day at all.
Whatever. I feel so disappointed in myself. I passed so many people out running last night, all powering along and some even in pairs having a conversation! (I'm barely able to see straight let alone converse!!)
So, do I put it behind me and carry on or do I go back a week? Do I run this evening or still take the rest day?
