I haven't posted for a while but I've still been running. I have been really busy lately so have only been able to run twice a week. I've also been plagued with stich, it was so bad the other day it stopped me and doubled me over, no way could I run through it. Today I tried not eating or drinking before running and although I had no stich I found the run really hard due to no fuel.
I felt like I ran way slower than normal so I pushed myself to run further. I have been running around 4k in 35 mins and today I managed 4.5k in 40 mins. It is a month since I graduated and the 5k is in my sight, just slightly out of reach, but I'm getting there.
