#HalfTrainingWithJeff Update Well, we are still pretty confident that we'll conquer the half marathon. We attempted a nighttime run last night to prepare for the midnight race. It was TOUGH! I'd been up since 6AM with just a short nap from 8:30-9:30PM. Probably wasn't the smartest idea. Also, not sure what we ate during the day, but we were both having some tummy issues. And it was HOT. All in all, not a very good recipe for success on this run. We ended up only running 4 miles - instead of the 9 on our training plan.
Good news! At least our lighting situation is all set. We tested out our configuration, and it worked great. Yay!!
We have one more long run on the schedule before the pricing increases for the ET Marathon races. So, one more long run before we have to make the decision of sticking to the half or dropping to a 10k. I'll be good either way. :)

30 Day LBD Challenge Update - So, yeah. I only did one more day of this challenge before calling it quits. The thought of doing 50 burpees was simply too much for me. :( Instead I took a few days off and then started a new 30 Day Challenge...
30 Day Abs Challenge Update - My tummy is the area I'm most uncomfortable with. Isn't everyone? And yes, I know that abs are made in the kitchen. blah, blah, blah. Still I wanted to try out this challenge to see if I could see any improvements. Here is my pic from Day 1.
Waist - 32.25 inches
Belly - 37.5 inches
Hips - 49.5 inches
Wish me luck!
What's Next? I know I already mentioned it, but we're one week into my birthday streak! 37 days of running or 37 days of yoga or 37 days of a combination of both. Please pop on over to my party post to register and start streaking with me. Right now there are some fun prizes from Cocogo, Proud Runner, Detour Protein Bars, Bondi Band, and a Yoga Stretch Strap.
What's for Dinner next week? We got a TON of romaine lettuce in this week's Bountiful Basket. Seriously, like 4 heads. Plus a head of cabbage, too. So, you can probably guess what's going to be on our menu this week. I did try to find some recipes to spruce up the salads a bit, so there's that at least. :)
