How to run 10 miles
How I did it: Well my IT band (outer knee) didn't bother me AT ALL this time. First time in a long time. I had the knee band with me the whole time in case it kicked in. Finally my knee is adjusting. This is good news for the 1/2 marathon. So, all the usual suspects: carried water, hydrated consistently throughout. GU, energy gel, took that throughout. Key is to hydrate and energize before you're feeling depleted. Also I had great music on my ipod nano. the battery ran out on me as I hadn't charged it fully before the run. Live and learn. I did stop and stretch some along the way once or twice. It was a great feeling to accomplish it.
Lessons & tips: I'm training for my first 1/2 marathon, so I just want to finish in a reasonable time. So for me, two easy runs during the week. don't push it. On all runs, hydrate along the way, energize along the way, don't wait til you're FEELING depleted before you do it. bring music if you think it would help. charge all batteries -watch/music source adequately before the run. Listen to your body. Know when to push for more. Know when to stop. Stretch as needed. Walk if needed. It's all good.
