PM: Treadmill - 7.1 miles. Did the automatic hill intervals. Did the last 4 minutes at 9 MPH.

Going to just stick with getting back to running every day and running short and fairly easy, adding a mile to regular runs and a mile to my long run as the weeks go on and see where things go. Beach to Beacon is off (sadly), but I might pick up a half this fall but nothing set in stone.

PM: Treadmill - 5 miles after 36 minutes on the elliptical waiting for Megan to finish because there's only one of three treadmills working. I guess the complex is getting all new equipment. We probably won't get to see it.

PM: Treadmill - 6.5 miles. Hill Intervals. A little rough but I felt okay once I got going and continued beyond what I planned. Did 10 minutes on the elliptical waiting for the treadmill.

Megan ran outside. It was pretty uncomfortable outside and this was a complete reversal of our normal routine.

PM: Treadmill - 7 miles.

Downloaded some Radio Lab podcasts. I think the combination of the treadmill and the podcasts (as opposed to music) will work. I'm too out of shape to run in the heat and humidity and I don't really feel comfortable taking my shirt off currently. My hair hasn't been this dark during this time of the year in years.

PM: Treadmilll - 7 miles. Did 15 minutes very easy on the elliptical after.

+ Stretching and core

I've been walking the dog I walked last year the last week or so. We managed 50 or so minutes today and then I walked a mile and a half home. I felt like I got some exercise.
