I did it! I ran for 30min and upped the pace in the final 5!
I've also figured out my stitch problem. I can't eat for at least 3 hours before I run. So no stitch again today! I'm also drinking lots of water. I take a 1.5l bottle to work and make sure that I drink it all.
So after a horrendous evening with an angry 5 year old, I put both kids to bed by 6.45pm(!) and took it all out on my run. I relaxed (thanks IannodaTruffe) and destressed. I came home, stretched, ate, showered, and now feel bloody brilliant!
I've given my sleeping beauties (aka crazy kids) an extra secret kiss each. Now bring on half term and my last two runs!
