09/15/10 (3 mi, 9:06 pace)

I didn't run before work, I'd made plans to run with a friend from DailyMile.

Sleeping in felt marvelous, let me tell you!!! :-)

I came home after work and did Day 2 of the Shred Workout. I've been going back and forth on whether to do it every day, as some do, or just do it certain days of the week. I'm going to try just doing it on my strength training days for now, and see how it goes.

It's a pretty simple I'm starting with level 1.....but I can feel it doing quite a bit of good already actually. :-)

At 8:30 pm, I loaded myself into the car, and headed over to my friends' house to run.

She wasn't home. In fact, the house was completely dark.


So....I stopped at the gym and hit the dreadmill for 3 miles.

It was strange walking into the gym....I haven't been there since I was cleared to run outside.

I realized, immediately after walking through the door, I don't miss it.

My goal was to run it, no walk breaks. I almost made it. :-)

At about 2.5 miles, I got the worst side stitch...and slowed down to take some deeper breaths and get rid of it. After 10 or so seconds, it was gone, and I was back at it.

Tonight's run will need to be much more relaxed. Running in my first 10K this weekend, and don't want to kill myself off.

Awww, that's too bad that your friend wasn't there. :( Good luck on your first 10K this weekend. Enjoy it! That's currently my favourite racing distance.

I left you a blog award on my blog.

I think I'm really going to like the 10K distance. I'm not speedy, so 5K's are out of the question....and I'll see how the half marathon goes in a month. My company always gets a team together for this 10K each year....but I'm usually the ring leader of the walking group. Will be fun to run it!!! :-)
