Following a relatively easy week three, week four’s training schedule steps things up a bit. Tuesday’s short run increases to 4.5 miles, while Wednesday’s tempo run is a full 35 minutes. Throw in a lengthy 7 mile run on Sunday and we have the toughest week on the plan so far. Luckily for me, this week looks like being pretty light in terms of work commitments, so I can split my time between training and spend plenty of time with Jess to celebrate our first year together. To round out the week, I’ll also step up the workload during the strength sessions, in terms of adding more reps to each set rather than increasing the weight.
