Tough run today!  Stayed up way to late- 2-2:30ish.  Got up at 9:30 to run and it was humid/hot!  Jogged 6 miles in 56 minute...found a hose and drank for a while.  Then somehow pulled out miles 7-8 in 13 minutes...found a second hose.  Jogged the rest of the way in (hit a bit of a wall mile 10).  Total of 12 miles in 1:44.  Hope to take a nap at some point during the day.  Need to head out to meet the family on the beach.

9 miles on the treadmill this morning...brutal!  But it was better than running in 98 degree Florida heat...Our family has been eating dinner at 6 and staying up until 1-2 in the morning...don't want to be the killjoy, so have to decide best running plan given circumstances.

Today's treadmill by miles:  9:30, 9:00, 8:30, 8:00, 7:30, 7:00, 9:00, 8:30, 7:30

Got back outside in the afternoon...fairly close to 100 degrees.  Ran 4 miles...10:00, 6:15, 10 min, 6:30.  Began to blister due to running barefoot on the beach.  Will probably split treadmill/outdoors tomorrow.

Kind of a recovery run...not that I've had a great run this week- it's just the heat.  Did 4.4 miles on the treadmill and 5.6 miles on the road.  Kept a 9-9:15 pace.

Started the morning with 45 minutes of weightraining- upperbody and legs.  Nothing too serious...just enough to maintain a little.

Ran 4 more miles just before dinner.  Ran 1 of them in 6:15...the other 3 were slow.  Not the greatest week for speed or tempo, but am trying to attain a solid week of mileage.
