11 mi at midday all easy, took about 45 minutes until I felt my systems were in balance since hamstrings and glutes were tired from squats yesterday.

7 mi before work, very slow because the hammies were still "singing". No run during lunch to give them a brief rest.

7 mi early before work + 6 mi during lunch hour

My running has been a slow jog for the most part this week. Legs are taking a long time to recover from squats I did over the weekend. I'm smarter these days as I don't push hard when my legs are still healing, but need to back down the intensity in weightlifting as I build on running. Also have to be careful over the next couple of weeks as this is when injury is more likely to pop up (weeks 3 to 5 of a build up).

7 + 7 morning and lunch, all easy pace

Legs had just a bit more pep. Much better than early in the week. Just need to stay consistent and temper the weight training.
