Weekly mileage: 11.2 miles

Tomorrow: 5 miles easy

 

Comments: A thunderstorm forced me indoors.  Which meant that rather than starting at 5:20 or 5:30, I had to wait for the gym to open at 6:00.  So I cut my run a little short.  If I can run outside tomorrow, I'll run an extra couple of miles, albeit slowly.
