Mon: ran 4 miles. couldn't get home and showered in time for TKD, got to gym late b/c I had a lot to do at home.
Tue: ran 4 miles, have to ice bad shin splints now. Went to TKD and it was cancelled due to no heat in the building (power outage from storm that went through).
wed: TKD was just a few kicking drills and then my teacher talked about technique the rest of the time! I didn't plan on this being a rest day and I'm trying to figure out how to set up the rest of my week now.
Thur: point sparring and weapons sparring.
Fri: another unplanned rest day. I kicked so hard with my left instep that the arch killed, and the 2nd toe on my right foot was swollen and bruised from accidentally landing a kick on the bottom of somebody's foot, so I iced everything.
Sat.: ran 4 miles

Do you think you do enough running?

Seriously, not enough atm because I'd like to run a 10K at the beginning of July, and I'd like to have a time I'm happy with.

Running also helps me a lot with the anxiety/depression issues I manage.

Mon 4-13: ran 5 miles.
Tue: ran 4 miles
Wed: ran 5 miles
Thur: day off due to hangover
Fri: ran 4 miles
Sat: day off ( I like to do rest days one at a time like this)
Sun: ran 4 miles, heavy bag

That makes 22 miles this week, I'd like to be at 25 miles within the next couple of weeks, and 30 miles within 6 weeks or so.

Mon 4-27: ran 4 miles, heavy bag combinations. I didn't do more than 10 min or so on the heavy bag, the Cipro I'm taking is making me puky and it was also fkin hot in there despite the A/C.
Tue: The A/C was in fact broken, but it got fixed today, so I ran 4.5 miles, avg. pace about 9:35. I would like to get it down more obviously, work up to 6 miles at a time to start, and add in incline.
I think I'm going to have to take the summer off TKD. 4 nights a week will not be doable once soccer season gets into high gear. I have a hard time getting there 3 nights a week as it stands now.
Wed: ran 4 miles, kind of sucking air, I was tired today.
Thur: ran 2 miles, bag work. I feel full of fail. I should probably consider this a rest day.
Fri: ran 4.5 miles. a little faster. Where was all this energy yesterday?

Do you change up your mileages or speeds much when you do your runs throughout the week? Back when I was in the military I used to do a lot of long distance runs from 7-13 miles depending on who was running that morning's PT. I never liked doing the same distance day in and out, so one day would be a fast 2 miles, the next a slow 5 miles, and so on. Doing so seemed to help break past certain cardio barriers not to include preventing knee injuries from constant long runs.

I tend not to vary my distance by more than 2 miles, because I am trying to get back to a 30-mile week. My struggle at the moment is not getting uptight about speed, i.e. I could have run 5-6 miles if I dropped my speed to a 9:40 minute mile (DON'T LAUGH!) but I wanted to run a 9:30 minute mile so I only went 4.

In the long term I would love to run the distances you mention, because eventually I'd like to run a half marathon, and I'm thinking about a 10K in early July. Idk how likely this is to happen, I'm a bad outside runner.

But yeah I will go between 6.2 and 6.5 or 6.8-7.0, depending on where I am in the run. I like to try to finish strong, at least for me.

Well here is a site that I used to visit regularly that is marathon specific. If you look through it you can find some spreadsheets that show what you should run and when. I think that you might be able to modify this a bit to fit your goals for miles/week as well as building yourself up to a full half-marathon.

Sun 5-03: 4 mile run. really really frustrated b/c I'd like to be going 5 9:40 or 9:30 miles each day now. but I get to sucking air and my legs kill and I feel pukey. INFURIATING.
Mon 5-04: 4.25 mile run, less pukey. I'm beginning to wonder if I should take the B-100 earlier, if that is making me pukey.
Tue: rested
Wed: 4.5 mile run, faster.
Thur: 4.5 mile run, about 9:30 pace throughout. This is progress for me. Taking the B-100 in the morning helped and didn't make me feel like I was going to hurl.
Fri: 2.2 mile run (Interrupted by soccer practice frenzy)
Sat: hungover
Sun: rested. about a 20 mile week, not bad but not great.
