25 minutes of running today, and a sideache the entire time. I know what to do to fix it now, in the short-term, but I think the real cure will just be time. I also decided to shake things up a bit and speed up for my last three minutes. It actually felt good, letting my legs stretch out to their full stride rather than these little short slow steps I've been taking. I want to be able to run full out like that during my entire run.

The week before I left for California, I weighed 183. I ate a lot of bad-for-me stuff there, and didn't run all three days, and I was sure the scale was going to reflect that... but now I weigh 178.5 so that was a nice surprise to start my day with. :)

And now off to work.

I read somewhere that I just need to stretch out my diaphragm when I'm running, or else is spasms. That sounds true to me because if I can breathe into my belly when I run (which I have to concentrate on because I tend to hold my abdominal muscles in tightly while running) it seems to make it feel better.

Did you see my old pictures? :)

yes, though the one of your mother does not seem old at all!

Well, it's older than I am! But no, it's not really an "old picture" I guess.
