Nice 10 mi bike trip with my daughter (divided by 4 for run equivalent).  Strength training at 80% of max afterward.

10 mi run on the trail in the middle of the afternoon.  Slowed pace by about 20-30 sec per mile because of the heat.

No run.  After work did complex training, which is mixing strength exercises and plyometrics.

6.5 mi before work.  Legs were flat from strength training yesterday.  Probably should have rested, but didn't run yesterday.

3.5 mi slow during lunch hour.  After years spent slinging iron, I've finally come to the conclusion that strength training at near maximum weight and distance running simply don't mix.  Strength training is a good thing, especially for older runners, but it can really make running a drag (pun intended).  So going to mess with the schedule again.
