Early Morning Runs & Chest Pains

I got off work at 7 this morning and went straight to the gym to finish out my full run.

I must have drank too much water beforehand, because I had the worst chest pains -- the kind that kept me from taking a deep breath (breaths are kinda important when you're running) and then became excruciating with each step I took on the treadmill. After 10 minutes, I had to stop and walk for a minute before starting to run again. The whole time, my stomach was in knots and I kept belching. Ugh!

At first, I told myself to just make it to 2.1 miles which, in addition to my pre-work mile last night, would equal a 5K. But, by 2.1 miles, the terrible pain disappeared, and I was able to finish strong, running 3.1 miles in 33:52.
