ToT Training Week 4

It's hard to believe that I'm already four weeks into training for the runDisney Twilight Zone Tower of Terror 10-miler.  I had a really good week.  The weather was perfect for running.  The Tampa area experienced a little cold front which brought in cooler temps and lower humidity.  Plus allergies were better.

I don't think I really ran 4.17 miles; my GPS was off a bit.  I think it was closer to 4 miles.  Either way, I met my goals for the week, so I'm super happy.  One more week of 3.5 miles for the long run and then I go up to 4 miles for "real".  

One thing I have noticed is my increased appetite. It seems like I'm hungry all the time.  I'm hoping that running more is kicking my metabolism in gear since it is all but dead from my radioactive iodine treatment on my thyroid.  

No races scheduled at this time.  There are quite a few coming up in the fall that I want to do, but the weather here in the summer don't trigger any desire to sign up for one.  

I'll check in again next week with another update.  Until then, get those shoes laced up and get out there!
