The splits above represent a 6 mile run I did yesterday, Thursday, after a day off being under the weather.  I felt strong as I went and wanted to push a little.  I didn't want to overdo it though, since today, I am running 400M repeats for some speed work.  I didn't intentionally make each mile faster, but rater, I was trying to build as my run went along.  

Pushing a little more as a run develops is great way to build endurance and also some mental strength and focus.  Concentrating during training can prove difficult as you sometimes get caught up slogging the miles away.  Focusing on your pace to the extent of keeping it strong can keep you in the game even on a day when you are simply getting miles in.
