So, did week 4 run 1 on Saturday after a long shift and got home, went food shopping then out for a run.
Started out well, getting into the groove in the first 3 mins, and could sense a stitch coming on, so when I was walking I took it steady and trying to breath into the stitch on my right side.
Started running the first 5 min stint and the stitch was still there, so I'm running and trying to keep breathing into the stitch, and it just got worse and worse and worse where I actually just did a bit of a ARGH in public and gave up the running bit not long after Laura said I was half way.
I was so gutted, but kept walking to keep the blood pumping.
Picked up running again for the 3 mins, fine stitch gone.
Picked up running again for the 5 mins and I was FLYING. Felt amazing to be running and running and whilst I did feel tired I just focused on keeping my legs moving and it was OK.
So this morning, Run 2 - feeling a bit anxious due to the killer stitch episode last time, so had a good 2 glasses of water and half a banana before I went out - and did all the running and walking fine, no stitch and not feeling like I was dying. I did feel by the end of it I had worked hard, but I wasn't feeling like I needed a heart and lung transplant so all good
So, run 3 on wednesday before I go on holiday for a week
