Monday - 1 mile treadmill, 0.25 hours strength training
Strength training was three rounds of 15 cleans at 60 pounds, and 100 jump ropes.
I've been doing a lot of jump rope lately along with using my balance board. I am hoping the two of these exercises will help improve my ankle strength and get me prepared to run little quick, choppy steps for trail running.
Tuesday - 9 miles treadmill
I'm so tired of running on the treadmill, but it was 93 degrees when I started this run and I wasn't about to attempt a long run outside in that kind of weather.
Wednesday - 1.25 miles treadmill, 0.25 hours strength training
Five rounds of 400s on the treadmill followed by 15 overhead squats at 45 pounds.
Thursday - 4 miles, 0.25 hours strength training
I started this run outside, but again it was like 900 degrees and I was melting into the pavement. I did the first three miles outside and then did the last mile on the treadmill. I also did three rounds of 100 jump ropes and 10 oblique crunch-thingies at 35 pounds.
Friday - Off

The trail marathon training has officially started. I'll write about this run tomorrow.
