9.09 miles in 1:41:30 @ 11:10 pace and 156/170 bpm for 1,371 calories

I went on my longest run yet (105 feet longer according to my GPS watch!) but unlike my last 9-miler, I haven’t been running as much recently and I definitely felt it.  By the eighth mile my right knee started to get sore and even after I had showered and stretched I was sort of limping up and down the stairs.  By the end of the next day my knee was fine, but it reminded me that if I want to keep increasing my distance up until my January half-marathon then I need to squeeze in more short runs to keep my body conditioned.  With more people I know setting running-streak goals for themselves, perhaps I need to consider running every day, even if it’s just a short jog up the street and back.
