THREE ways to improve your marathon finish time: #RWMarathonWeek

I'm training for my third marathon this fall and want to improve my speed without getting hurt. I've had a variety of aches and pains through the past two seasons of training and would love to train and finish faster with fewer aches along the way. I train four days per week, including a long run (longest at 24 miles), a speed workout (intervals at 5K pace), a tempo workout, and a hill workout. I'm developing my training plan for this season and wondering what I can add to improve performance. I'd like to break four hours this year, which would be a 30-minute personal record. Thanks for all your help! ~Jeff
