I really, really hate starting a day with a crappy run. I love running early in the morning because it sets a productive and peaceful tone for the rest of the day - this was not one of those days.
This morning i had my first really bad run since i got pregnant. It's single-digit cold, so it was a treadmill morning, which I'm hoping had something to do with it. I usually get 5 miles in before work but today i didn't even make it a full 4. There was a lot of walking involved. Something was uncomfortable on my side - i don't know if it was just an "off" day, or if Baby G2 was lying in a different position, or if i was slightly dehydrated, but the cramp was awful. The worst part was that the discomfort completely went away if i ratcheted the speed down to 8-minute miles, but my lungs are apparently not thrilled with that kind of pace anymore. I'm going to have my work cut out for me when i finally get back to real training in May.
I have 10 miles scheduled for Saturday, another single-digit forecast but definitely not on the treadmill. Hoping that goes better.
I did get some Orange Leaf for lunch, that dulled the annoyance a bit.
