End of Week 4

End of week 4 and end of level 2. This week had a race embedded so I only ran one up-tempo day (the race) with the rest all below 140. After the race the legs were sore for about 3 days and my back decided to hurt for those 3 days as well. In fact, two mornings after the race the back hurt very much. It is subsiding now. I must have done something to it.

This morning's rainy run ended week #4. All the other runs were in bright sunshine so I won't complain. My paces at similar heart rates seem to be getting a little better. Next week begins level 3 which is another increase in mileage and the introduction of the 2 hour long run.

Friday 9.43 miles 7:57 pace / 136 HR

Saturday 7.47 miles 8:02 pace / 139 HR

Sunday 7.1 miles 5:56 pace / 178 HR

Monday 9.59 miles 7:49 pace / 139 HR

Tuesday 9.26 miles 8:06 pace / 134 HR

Wednesday 7.76 miles 7:44 pace / 136 HR

Thursday 11.6 miles 7:46 pace / 138 HR

Total: 62.21 miles avg 7:37 pace / 143 HR

You have weird weeks (start on Fri?) but I like your new more moderate approach. If you can string a consistent series from here on in, well, watch out!

Another great week. I remember your posting a few weeks back which talked about more runs at a low HR (coupled with other factors) can benefit overall aerobic levels. Or at least I think I got that right. Regardless, good week.
