Great run...and I'm getting tantalizingly close to that 10:30 per mile mark! (10:35 per mile today.) I ran in the evening, at about 5:30, and I really enjoyed that. It was in the mid-50s, and I was able to wear shorts and a tank top. I was chilly at first but felt great as I warmed up. Running is still hard for me...but so worth it. I feel awesome afterward.
Have been using the blue roller of torture (a.k.a. foam roller) on my quads and IT band. Just learned yesterday how to really use it effectively. It HUUUUURTS to use it, but my IT band felt much better during today's run than it did on Sunday.
