Running Log, Week 4

Mileage for week: 15

Number of run days: 5

Long run for week: 3

Aches, pains, complaints: This was a lower-mileage week designed to get me over the hump from running four days a week to running five. It went okay, though that fifth run was a little brutal (a fact I’m sure had nothing to do with the mass quantities of champagne I’d consumed the night before). On the whole, things are going well; I’ve upped the stretching of my hips, and that’s helped a good deal with the lower-back soreness. I’ve also discovered that my base easy-mileage pace is a good bit faster than it used to be, which is a nice thing to find out. The schedule ramps up quickly from here, though, so I’m still pretty cautious in my optimism.
