I finally did it this morning. I got my ass out of bed, although I was freezing, put on my running clothes, and shoes and got on the treadmill.

It was a rough one today.  I knew it would be since I haven't run in almost a week.  Plus I forgot my water glass at home yesterday so I was dehydrated.  Boy was I right.  That dip is where I had to walk for a few minutes.  I can normally run through the side pain and it goes away, but this time it moved straight to my abs around my sternum and was SHARP, almost take your breath away sharp.  I had some water while I walked and got back at it.

And because I went at a slower pace (4.7) today I decided for the last 5 minutes I'd bump it up to 5.  I hate feeling like I want to keep going when I finish.  Makes me feel like I should have pushed harder.  Not that I wasn't sweaty and all, but if I can keep going, I want to do it.  Maybe tomorrow I'll try for the 3 miles at 5 again.  You know since I remembered my water today!

So I decided to step on the scale just to see how much damage my lack of exercise and water has done and I was surprised to find I'm at .4lb less than I was on weigh in day.  It has me motivated to be strong the next few days.  179 is so close I can taste it!
