This was a pretty good week of training. I was incredibly fatigued on Wednesday and did not complete an endurance run as planned. Next week I will make sure that I do the Wednesday run. I had a lot of fun at the strongman gym and will be going there again in a couple weeks. I decided to start training for a triathlon as well as the ½ marathon. Next week I will build on this weeks' training sessions with a little bit more volume and intensity.
