10 miles @ home (11:57)

16 Sep

Comments: I planned on running Saturday morning, but somehow I got ‘stuck’ on the PC and did not go to bed until 3 am! :O Of course my weary bones did not get up until 10 am. So I decided to wait until Sunday to run with strict order to the husband to send me to bed no later than 11pm on Saturday evening!

I decided on wearing my gloves and a baseball cap; it was a good decision because it was pretty chilly outside. After my lungs got used to the cold air (I prefer the cold air of humid any day, so no complaints here) I was getting into a rhythm. The run overall was uneventful, the knees ached a little bit, but nothing like last Saturday. At about mile 7.5 my IT band said hello, but it didn’t stay around. 😉

After the 10 mile loop I was thinking about going out again, but I want to be able to start back into my training tomorrow and not be sore. Now my right knee is aching a little, but that’s nothing some Motrin and ice can’t take care of.

It felt good to be back out there and I am looking forward to running in the colder weather. 🙂

    Glad to hear you’re back in the game. Hope the IT band stays quiet! I couldn’t agree with you more about the cooler temps. Such a diffrence from last weekend. Way to go!

    Sounds like a good solid run. Congrats. It was probably a good idea to skip out after 10 and not push it too much. Knees…yeah they get a little cranky for all of us. IT band can be a little more problematic if it gets a hold on you. I’ve been pretty fortunate injury wise, but the IT got me a few years back and I pushed and it pushed back to the tone of 2-3 weeks with no running. You did the right thing.
    I sure do love this colder weather…
    Good luck,

    Great news!!! You are back at it. I’m so happy for you.

    Enjoy the cooler weather. It is amazing to me how different it is running without the humidity and heat. Feel like a different person!! (well, same old feet, but certainly better on the cardio)

    Running in the cooler weather is definitely a treat after the heat of the past few months. Good run. It’s always great to feel like you have energy left over for more running!
