Ran 10 miles yesterday with one stop at 60 min for less than 2 minutes for a drink of water! It was really difficult and for sure wouldn't have been able to continue without Tina joining me for the last 4 miles. Got home and was having a little bit of a muscle ache in my hip, but took some ibuprofen and all is well this morning. There were a couple times I wanted to stop (not walk-STOP), but I trucked through it with a pretty good pace of 10:25 per mile. I did realize that I HATE out and back routes. We went around the lake 3 times and was supposed to go a fourth, but I realized that I didn't need to go that way to get my mileage in so I turned and took a different path. At the end of the run, at exactly 10 miles, I stopped and walked the last couple of blocks home. I must have been tired, because normally I would just finish the whole way home and then stop the GPS. Next week is 11 miles and I am hoping that it is a bit easier.
Hubby goes to Wyoming this week and the weather should be GREAT for runs outside! I am hoping that it works out to complete mostly outside runs this week so I don't have to run on the TM!
VERY optimistic about the half on March 19! whoot hoot! --steph
