Zoned

The winter weather is coming back for an extended stay. That's alright. Nothing we can do about it anyway! I ran 4.8 easy today. This is my rest week. I, again, had to hold down the pace. I averaged 9:33's. I required two miles to warm-up today and those first miles were in 20:40 so my easy training zone seems to be faster than marathon pace. I'm somewhat encouraged by this recent result, my easy training pace improving, and I am beginning to believe I could break four hours for the marathon. One more easy run tomorrow, around 5+ miles then I'll launch into another four week block of training. Hope your run was good-peace
