Enough rambling! Hubby decided that we should ride the bikes to the track. I think this was the first time that we did this, but maybe we did it the previous week too. It made things a little challenging for me from a logistical standpoint. I wasn't sure when to start my apps. I wasn't sure if the ride to the track should count as my warm up. I wasn't sure what to do with my headphones on the trip over. I forgot to turn off my app before we left the track so my minute per mile is all jacked up. I think I got some speed record because I was riding my bike downhill during the workout on the Polar app. Oopsy.
So the run itself was a bit challenging. It's tough to say if it was because of the five minute jogging intervals or because we road to the track. The track is a little uphill from the house. most people wouldn't notice the include, but I'm a wimp on the bike so I really notice it. My hamstrings were feeling it when we got to the track. I tried to keep myself in the 12 minute per mile range, but it was quite challenging to do that. I started out at a good pace for each run, but then fell off the pace, but I got through it and wasn't in pain. I was ready to stop running because I couldn't breathe, but I could have kept going it I had needed to do so.
I ended up having some severe pain in my right side after the final running segment. It went from my hip to my shoulder. It was sharp and horrible. I walked it off in a couple minutes, but it was horrible while it lasted. It seriously felt like someone was stabbing me.

Here are the screen shots. I just noticed that it gave me a running score. I'm not sure what that's all about. Check out how fast I was on the end of that workout? That was me going downhill on my bike because I forgot to shut the app off. UGH!
