there's the crappy run I was looking for...
I decided to run with my bf and roommate this morning - they were only planning on a short one (2 miles). It's cold and gloomy here, and I really wanted to stay in bed.
First mile was a little quick, and my IT band felt a little tight, so we stopped to stretch. During the second mile, my lungs gave up. It wasn't hilly and we weren't running that fast, but I just couldn't take a deep breath. I sent the boys home and stopped and walked and stretched for a few minutes. I really just wanted to be back in bed. When I felt I could, I slowly ran the last 1/2 mile home.
Total: 2.5 miles/24:48/avg. pace 9:55
I'm still happy that I can run, and my shoulder bothered me a lot less today, but I think I'm going to take it easy the rest of the day. Hopefully I get over this in the next two weeks before the Cherry Blossom 10-miler.
