Another treadmill day!
Well, it was first day of NO 7 am wake-up call. YES! I was able to sleep until 9 am this morning. I got up with my hubby and prepped for my day running. The temps felt a little warm morning this morning - after a VERY nice night of NO A/C and opening the windows. My hubby ran some errand this morning using my car until I was finished getting dressed, ate, and used my nebulizer before running. Once he was home, I took off and headed out. I decided once I was in the car that I would use the treadmill at the gym just in case. It was getting a little too warm this morning and did not want to take any chance with warm temps. I arrived at the gym and used the treadmill to get my 3 miles in. I kept the speed at 12:15/mile pace. It was a little bit easier to run until I hit the 1.75 mile mark and the d*&@ side stitches came back. UGH! I slowed down to the 12:30 pace until they went away and then increased my speed. My hip did not feel right during the last bit of the run, but pushed through it. I completed the 3 miles at 38:09 - slower than I wanted to, but OH WELL! After my run and as I stretched, I decided to head to the chiropractor's officer for an adjustment. I had enought time before I needed to get ready for work. I called my husband and let him know that I would not heading straight home after the gym. When I got to my chiropractor's office, I had my chiropractor put some of the tens unit pads on my lower back and hip area. As I was laying face down, he checked my alignment in my pelvis. As I thought, I was out of alignment - not a surprise. He did a quick adjustment and showed me a stretch for my side stitches that will expand my rib cage and make them GO BUH-BYE! While I was at work, I checked my personal e-mail and received the results of the TC 10 mile lottery. Well, it's looking like I will not be running the event this year, but I will be out cheering the marathoners running the full marathon that day. Oh well! I can wait until next year. Tommorow and Thursday will be cross-training day. The weather will HOPEFULLY cool down a little bit more where I can run OUTSIDE on Friday. (Crossing toes and fingers!) Today's work-out 3 miles - treadmill 38:09 12:38/mile pace
