Okay, so this thing had sort of fallen by the wayside, but it's back. Getting back into running was one of my New Year's resolutions, and I've actually been doing okay. Attempting, anyway. All through the bitterly cold January I ran at least twice a week...in my house using the Wii. So, not real running but as close as I was willing to get. Here in California the weather is so sunshiney beautiful that it's hard NOT to get out and explore. I think I ran about 5 miles this week, with the intent to improve.
My legs don't hurt and my clothes and shoes are comfortable, but my breathing could use a lot of work. After about ten minutes I get a huge side ache that feels like my rib has broken and is stabbing me in the kidney. Um, boo. Maybe I need to do more sit ups so that my organs stay in place and don't jostle around while I'm running. Or maybe I need an oxygen tank. Anybody else have this problem or know how to fix it?
Izzy made a jelly bean-sized poop earlier but I now believe that she has finished her masterpiece, so I have to go take care of business. Ciao.
