I am working an odd shift this week so I am getting up a little later in the morning. But, the marathon schedule must go on. Today I ran what is called a "quality" run of 4-5 miles. This involves intervals of faster running that get my out of a comfort zone into one of more painful running. This is designed to increase the cardiovascular capacity and eventually get me in shape to endure 26.2 miles. The run went a little better than expected. I had to walk at the end of the faster intervals and going up one big hill but my time was still almost two minutes faster than my normal run.
