I recently started Couch 2 10K. It's great. It takes a very long time. I really want to do my workout in the morning because I see huge results on the scale (hint, hint :) when I do. Here's the problem, er...problems.
Problem #1 is that I can't eat first or my side will hurt. BAD. But with no food since dinner the day before (around 4pm), I run out of energy. Actually I don't have any to begin with.
Problem #2 is I can't drink water because then I need to pee every 5 seconds. But if I don't drink water I get dehydrated and have to call my hubby to come pick me up before I can finish my workout because I'm afraid I will pass out.
So, hit me with you best shot. Any advice from all the morning runners out there? The ones with small bladders and side stitches...
By the way, please don't take these for excuses. I will continue to pee in bushes and run with what seems like 50 pound weights on my feet if I have to. I am relentless, remember?
