|View from our pool cabana|
We bought a Groupon for the pool cabana, and had a great time hanging out all day in the shade of the cabana and the cool water of the pool.
Last Saturday, I finalized my marathon training plan, so last week was my first official week of training for RnRVegas.
I think I've got my #marathontraining plan all figured out. 14 weeks until #stripatnight. Who else is training for #RnRVegas?

I'm super excited!!! Last week, I won entry into Long Beach marathon.
Congrats @EnjoytheCourse - you won the free entry to the Long Beach Marathon! http://t.co/WA74OmF8GVNow, I can't decide!! Full or Half??

My training plan has a 20-mile run on the same date as Long Beach (10/12), so I'm VERY tempted to do the full. I would take it very easy (Long Beach has a 7.5 hour limit for the marathon), and then there would be several weeks between the two marathons - for recovery, another long run, and taper.
Of course, there is also a triathlon thrown in there towards the end of October.
So... go all crazy and do a full OR play it safe and do the half? I have until Oct 1st to decide, but any advice would be much appreciated!!
What's Next?Ventura Half Marathon and 30-mile Bike Ride - Jeff and I got on our bikes for the first time in MONTHS yesterday. We made it 8.25 miles. A far cry from 30. But OK for our first time back out there. Unfortunately, Ventura is now only 2 weeks away!! Oops.
|Yes, Sallie will be going on the bike ride with us.|
What's for Dinner next week?Confession: We ate out A LOT last week. Maybe the last two weeks. And not really the good eating out. I'm talking Jack in the Box. O.o
That's got to STOP!!
