Today my goal was 5 3 minute running segments. I made it for four, and the last one was two minutes. The first two intervals felt pretty good. The third was hard. The fourth I started to get a little stitch in my side right at the very end. This is the first time this has happened. The last interval I just didn't feel up for finishing. Maybe I should have pushed, but it was hard to breath and my muscles were feeling pretty tired, so my form was getting sloppy. It seems like every day it is something new. One day the lungs can't make it but the muscles are fine, the next day breathing capacity is fine, but the muscles just can't do the push. There is always some little thing...but I keep on going.
I saw a hare in the park on my run today. He ran right in front of me.
