I didn't feel like I was working that hard, so I extended the run first to 2 minutes, and then to 3 by the end of the week. One of the things I remembered from training was the importance of breathing. So even though my pace hasn't changed, my breathing hasn't either. I still take a breath every 4-5 steps, and make sure I keep the same pace up hill and down.
This week I'll be doing some running on a track -- my goal is do a full 4 miles and see what my time actually is. I'll also be significantly increasing the running portions, too. Be nice to increase the speed, but we'll go for endurance first.
