Again there weren't a lot of people in class, and there were 2 ladies who stood in the back of the room and talked the entire time until we did abs at the very end. What is up?

This was pretty heinous...the dreaded side stitch struck a few times. Also I noticed over the course of the week that my right knee has been popping and almost feels as if it's off track, if that makes any sort of sense. During this run it started aching, so I iced it immediately after I was done cooling down and stretching. It stopped hurting after that evening but is still popping. *frowny face*
Friday, 7/1/11 - 10k plan, Day 16 - 2.8 miles in 40:00 (14:17 pace) - 5 min warmup/cooldown walks @ 3.6, 30 min jog @ 4.4
Believe it or not the treadmill started stuttering AGAIN just as I tried to start this one. Had to have my dad help tighten the belt on the motor like the repair guy showed us. Seriously, it's been less than a week since he was here. Temporary fixes that we have to take the damn thing apart to perform every time - that's just not gonna cut it. I may be giving up on it and running outside soon, in which case I will probably have to backtrack on my training and/or get a Garmin to help with pacing. The middle of summer in the Midwest is not what I would call ideal running conditions...boooo.
