10 miles!!

I ran 10 miles!!!!

I have entered into the double digit miles. It's so crazy to think I'm running that far. I would have NEVER thought last year that I could  run 10 miles without stopping. It was hard enough running a 5k in under 45 minutes, but today I ran 10 miles in 1.57.50!! I even ran it without my ipod.

I got up at 4 when the alarm went off, got dressed, and got myself out the door. It was such a peaceful morning I thought it would be a good day to run without music, so that's what I did. I ate a GU before and another 1/2 way though. It seemed to help. I felt really good. There were no sore muscles or joints. I felt like I had lots of energy. At one point I even thought about going 3 more miles so I could say I ran a 1/2, but I decided not to push myself.

I feel soo good! What a great run!

I weighed in and lost .4. I wish it was more, but whatever. I'm doing good training and my clothes are fitting great so that's all that matters. I'm getting to the end of my weight loss and the last few pounds are the hardest to lose. It'll come off and I'll be way past my goal before the marathon for sure.

Oh, my splits:
1. 13.37
2. 12.45
3. 12.09
4. 11.39
5. 11.22
6. 10.58
7. 11.20
8. 11.18
9. 11.17
10. 11.21

Not too bad, not negitive splits, but that's ok. I was going for a comfortable pace and that's what I did. :)
