Week 4

Recommended Posts

I’m about to start week 4 and am wondering if my pace is suppose to b getting better each week?  This week seems to be a big increase in run time and want to make sure I’m improving like I’m suppose to.

I’m no expert and with that being said. Gain is a byproduct of hard work in training. If your going longer you doing right. Be sure to stretch and hydrate and eat the right things and your body will do as it is designed which is survive.

At week 4 I don’t think you have enough data to determine if your pace is improving. I just started week 8, and while I notice a minor increase in distance, I am also spending a little more time on the track. Time on the track varies up and down through the program, and time walking versus running does too ( though later running is only going up). Seems like day 1 of each week I deliberately slow my pace, so I have enough wind to run through the run phases, however I seem to mostly increase my distance over time. It has been, for me, only 22 days on the track, and I have good and bad days. My pace goes up and down day to day, but my endurance gets better every day. Once I am running 5 k regularly, I expect my pace to improve logarithmically, I.e., steep gains initially that plateau as I reach my body’s best.
