Monday: 7 miles, 5 at 8:00 pace (tempo). Tough run, did it fasted and really felt rotten for the rest of the day. Crossfit in the afternoon: 50 rounds: 1xsquat, 1xpush-up, 1xsit-up, 1xsuperman, 1xjumping squat. This looked easier than it actually was.

Friday: Had 5 miles on the plan (easy) but was feeling super fatigued from the week. Walked for 2 easy miles instead.
Saturday: 3 miles, physically fine except for yet another blister, but just so mentally and emotionally exhausted from the week this was all I could do. As a side note, why so many blisters now? What do I need to re-evaluate about my shoes, socks, running, etc?
Sunday: 10 miles, not terrible for the first 6, but the blister killed my mojo. Normally I can run through them, but I think this was the straw that broke this run’s back.
Total: 43 miles, 3 key CrossFit workouts + one core-focused workout.
Sometimes running is hard.
