I stopped at 10!

Yesterday I pounded out 10 miles of the Hampton Roads area, 60 degrees & humid.  I was only going to do 9, but the route I was running ended up being 10.  I'll run this route one more time before bumping up to the 11 mile mark.  I had to smack Wendy around again today! Started out with a great pace, and of course I started to slow down towards the end, stopped once for fuel and potty.  Overall I feel great about my progress so far, a little tight in the hamstrings but my IT band didn't act up not even once. I'm off to go make love to my foam roller ...tootle loo......

Nice! I think I'm becoming a fan of the foam roller myself.

That is some warm weather you're having (my husband is in DC and told me he had to chip off 1/2 inch of ice on his car yesterday morning.) Way to go on the 10-miler!

Good job on your 10 miler.

The foam roller is such a useful thing. I love/hate it. It works wonders but when I'm tight it hurts like crazy.

What is a foam roller and where do you stop to "fuel and potty" while running?!

So tired from Becki's Boot Camp...
we REALLY need to get together...

Very good results. The distance and pace are all that really matters. Total time = distance x pace and calories are approximate. Obviously, the longer you run, the more calories you burn.
Most importantly, you're able to run 10 miles without any knee pain. That's great.
