C25K: W4D3 Completed

Started my session Saturday and after the first two intervals I got side stitches. Tried to run through them, but found it to be impossible. Next morning (Sunday) reattempted the run and was successful. Here is my dilemma: my body seems to enjoy a 5.0-5.5 pace. I *feel* great about the process when running at that speed, however i cannot sustain it for the full work0ut session. If I run slower I can sustain it the entire session, but the run feels like drudgery. Should I keep my speed low to push through the c25k program, or should I let myself run at the speed that feels right, even if it means have to repeat sessions several times before i can nail them?

Here is this session’s stats, and the gap at around 20 minute mark represents where i paused the workout Sat and restarted it Sunday. It was a total of 3.49 miles over the two day session.
