C25K, W7D1 32 degrees today, but beautiful out. Dressed a little too warm, got hot while running. Next time need to be more aware of what to wear!!
Went out a little too fast today, did the first mile in a 9:00min pace. Got a stitch and could never get rid of it. Not sure if it was the chinese food or the glass of wine I had at dinner last nite. Both of which I should abstain from!! Lowered the pace to about 10min, and finished the 25 minutes, but still had a stitch, not as bad as in the beginning, but it was lingering:(
But with the 5 minute warm (walk) up, 25 minute run and then the 5 minute cool down (walk), I was pleased I came in at 3.43 (Polar told me 3.5), but either way, I was in at about an 11:26 pace over all. A few more weeks, most of my program will be running, so I should see a better pace. But I'm not complaining, I'm WAY ahead in my training, then when I trained in 2005. Wonder if it's because in 2005 I started on the dreaded treadmil, and this time I got myself outside in the cold, snow, etc...????
But, I'm well on my way to getting to the point where I can really start training for my races and accomplishing my goal of 9 NYRR races this year!!
