I'm now through 28 days of the Runner's World Run Streak (run every day between Memorial Day and the Fourth of July) and I have to admit, I'm tired. This week I also started my 18 week training plan for my fall half marathon. 18 weeks is an awfully long time to train for a half marathon! And I'm just not quite up to the speed I should be at for the training, but I'm getting through it.
Monday - 3.5 miles, track workout

Tuesday - 3.5 miles with stroller
While Dave was doing his track workout, I took Anderson out on a little jog through the town. This is how he spent his time, either bored or asleep:
Wednesday - 8 miles
This was my midweek long run. It was supposed to be done at a 7:35 pace. I knew I had zero percent chance of reaching that, so I turned off the alerts on my Garmin and just ran as hard as I could at this time (and for what the crazy hot weather would allow me). My overall pace was an 8:25. I've got a long way to go.
Thursday - 2 miles treadmill, 0.25 hours strength training
Today was a busy day and I barely had time to get in a run. So, I only did 2 miles on the treadmill and then lifted some weights. The weights just about killed me. It was reps of 21-18-15-12-9-6-3 front squats with 65 pounds and BOSU crunches. I was barely able to walk for the next two days!
Friday - 10 miles treadmill
I had hoped to do a long run on the park trails today but it was hotter than balls outside and I had too much to do to get to the park. Yes, I ran 10 miles on the treadmill.
Saturday - 2 miles
After not even a 12 hour turn around since my last run, I got up early on Saturday and did a quick 2 miles through the neighborhood before everyone woke up and before we had to leave for our roadtrip.
Sunday - 1 mile treadmill, 0.25 hours strength training
The baby and I took a quick roadtrip down to visit relatives in Kentucky over the weekend and I was absolutely exhausted when I got back. Although I had planned on doing my 6 mile tempo run, I just didn't have the energy. So I did one mile on the treadmill followed by 3 X 10 reps of oblique crunches at 35 pounds and snatch squats also at 35 pounds.
Run - 30 miles
Strength Training - 0.5 hours
