I braved the cold for my eight mile run. I've had a bit of hip pain the last couple of days but I am positive it is arthritis, so I did the Jeff Galloway 4/1 intervals. It was a great run. Normally the first three miles are really tough for me. Today they weren't bad at all. I started out very, very slow. I am sure that is why. My first mile is the hilly part anyway so I did quite a bit of walking, a little more than just the 4/1 intervals. I intentionally tried to keep the run part slow, but I seemed to get faster with about every mile. The last mile was downhill so it was pretty fast. Love those negative splits.
