Yup - this week, three mile Tuesday became Four Mile ?????. My Higdon plan added a mile to the Tuesday run to put me at four miles today. As per the plan, I picked up the pace a little and ran a 9:40 pace for the four miles. This would have been faster if I didn't need to make a pit stop two miles in. I am beginning to feel a little faster. When I first started this training cycle, I was having trouble running a 10:30 mile. Yesterday, I put in a 9:00 first mile. So - things seem to be working. For sure - my legs are feeling tired at the end of some of my harder runs, so that is good!
Today is hill day. We increase by one repeat today, so it's going to be a tough one! Here I come!
