28 min run (Actual: 25 min run/1 min walk/2 min run)
We ran a different route today. We went out of the neighborhood, along the bike paths, through a nearby neighborhood. I was doing great until the 25 minute mark. Then I had a sharp pain in my side, and had to walk for about a minute, until the pain subsided. I finished the run, covering 2.47 miles. Most of this run was uphill.
28 min run (Actual: 23 min run/1 1/2 min walk/3 1/2 min run)
We ran a route similar to our last, except instead of making a loop, we ran 15 minutes then turned around and headed to the house. This made the route uphill in the beginning, and downhill towards the end. I had pain in my side again today, thus the walking portion. I think this is due to improper breathing, but I’m not quite sure. I will have to focus more on my breathing. Other than that, the run was pretty good.

Our normal run for workout 3 is on Thursdays. Since this Thursday was Thanksgiving, we took the day off. When I woke up Friday morning, I was sick. I stayed on the sofa most of the day. We walked the dogs, but that proved to be exhausting. There’s no way I could run. Saturday I had the best of intentions, but still wasn’t feeling great. We got the dogs out for a walk, but a run was just too much for me. This morning we walked the dogs, and Nick was going to run. I was originally going home to lay on the sofa and rest, since I was up most of the night coughing. When we got in from our walk, I made up my mind that I was going to try running today. I told Nick not to wait for me, he could run ahead. My plan was to run 5 minute intervals. Once I started running, I let my body set the pace. Today’s run wasn’t too bad for still being sick. I am a little late (Sundays are usually the beginning of our week), but at least I got my last run in for the week.
