I had a great run today!
I slowed down on my training in April/May because I was in a funk about my daughter health problems. I got over it and started training again at the end of May. Since then, my running has not been quite as fast or long as it was before I slowed down my training. Well, as of tonight—I’m back! I ran a time that is where I was before! I did a 5k run on the treadmill at my gym in just under 36 minutes. While this is not a great time for some of you, it’s a great time for me! I did walk/run intervals, walking at 3.5 and running at 6.4. If I can keep this pace up for my 10k in September, I will meet my goal of qualifying for corral C at the Princess Half Marathon in February!
I have a question for you guys. Every time I run, about twelve minutes in, I get a terrible cramp on my right side. It is so bad that I have to slow down and walk for several minutes. Sometimes it goes away, sometimes not. I asked my doctor of Thursday about it and she thinks it has to do with having to much in my stomach when I run. That is why I was researching prerunning eating and posted what I did yesterday. Sometimes I think that is the reason, sometimes I don’t. For instances tonight, I ran at about 9:30 PM. I hadn’t eaten since about 6 PM. Has this happened to anyone else? What can I do to make the cramp go away, or better yet keep it from ever coming back?
