Set a goal to hopefully help with my consistency.  500 miles by September 1.  Right now I have all the time in the world. August, life will get crazy again.  Started at Labor Day, so 39 miles in so far.  My stomach was sensitive this morning.

I got really sick over the weekend so I have been out of commission.  Sucks to have a setback just when I was getting consistent.  Back at it. Found a new side road to extend one of my running routes.  That is always strangely exciting to a runner.  Onward to my first 100 miles of the summer

Easy 40 minutes.  Starting a strength program today.  Because I have no muscles anymore.  We'll see how it mixes with running.

50 minute run with 8 x 1 minute pushes on treadmill followed by chest/triceps.  Just passed my first 100 miles of the summer.  Not bad except for the three days of being sick.  I would also like to be under 130 pounds by September.  Right now I'm hovering around 135.  I will weigh every 100 miles.

Lighter run.  I am tired. Back and bicep workout at gym.  It's long past time that I worked on my strength.  It's humbling.  I  working with a friend who lifts daily.  She is so strong.  Working towards a 9 mile long run this week.

My arms hurt sooo bad.  I can't even fully straighten them out.  Running got all the blood flowing though and I felt better after my run.  9 miles is the goal tomorrow!  Working toward that double digit run!!

Longer run.  Not quite to 10.  I am strapped for time this week.  Next week.  Then to gym for leg day.  Lots of quads.  Need to work hammies more.
