Today's schedule called for 4 miles easy (which is a 10:04 pace). I was running my miles in the dark and to see my GPS screen, I have to hit a button. Instead of constantly hitting the backlight and staring down at my Garmin for the duration of the run, I decided to just run how I felt and not push too hard. My splits for the 4 miles were 9:16, 9:15, 9:05, and 8:52. Since I was running in my area, I hit some pretty steep hills in there too. I am hoping all this hill training will adequately prepare me for the beginning and very end of the marathon:
I felt good afterward and managed to spend some time stretching and foam rolling. Love that!
