Weekly mileage: 16.6 miles

Cumulative mileage: 203.9 miles

Distance: 4.0  miles

Time: 43:53

 

Pace: 10:58 per mile

Stretch: Yes

 

Weekly mileage: 4.0 miles

Cumulative mileage: 191.3 miles

 

Tomorrow: 8 miles pace

 

Comments: I admit I'm nervous about tomorrow.  Last Wednesday, I couldn't finish my 7 mile pace run, and this week, the schedule says 8.  I just have to go out and run it and get over the hump.

 

 

Update: I adjusted my mileage and pace, having realized that I didn't quite run the route yesterday that I thought that I had. (And I wondered how I had hit that quick a pace on an easy day!)
