Wind of Change

Yowza!  Look at that graph!  Last night's run was tough - made even worse by the wind.  But at least I got out there and did something, right?

That biggest dip just after the first mile was completed was coming downhill, into a bridge tunnel and the wind was so strong it felt like I was running in place.  Awesome.

My pace was all over the place.  Mile 2 I got an awesome stitch on my right side, but was trying to keep up with my husband... so I just kept going.  I was trying to exhale when my left foot hit the ground, but it wasn't working and I was breathing too hard (and not in a rhythm) for it to work.  Anyone have a good tip for getting rid of a side stitch, without walking?

Nice run. Especially with the wind. My only side stitch solution is breathing 2 steps in through my nose and 2 steps out through my mouth.

Keep up the awesome racing!

I hate running in the wind.. YUCK. Good for you for getting out there.

I usually stop for a second, take a deep breath, and then start again. Usually works!
