I'm doing marginally better at keeping up with the program than I am making it over here to talk about it. The rest of week four went right on schedule, even if I was majorly clock-watching on the last two running intervals.

My normal schedule is running Tuesday, Friday, and Sunday. Week five's Tuesday, it poured down rain all day, and then it snowed Wednesday morning, wheeee. The weather in the afternoon was still pretty rough and cold, but I knew I could push through the five minute intervals so I went anyway. And then Friday the weather was pretty nice again and I just... didn't feel like it. So I ran day two on Saturday, and the last day of week five today.

I was pretty sure that I could physically get through the eight minute running intervals, and I put them on the easiest part of my route anyway. I was more worried how I'd do for will power, but it turns out that I manage far better with longer intervals. Timing it by multiple songs takes the clock out of it pretty well for me.

For today's 20 minute run, I just went for it - started on the hilly section near home and turned around fifteen minutes in so that the last five was back uphill as well. The cardio wasn't too rough, and I managed a little over two miles, so I was pretty happy with my pace, but my legs are definitely screaming at me now, about 6 hours later. I'm glad I've got two days before starting week six.
