I really need to stop waiting until Wednesday to do my recaps.
Anyway, so good news, bad news. Bad news first, I, yet again, did not get a long run in. It was my own stupid fault because I wore the wrong sneakers when I started my run (I have a love/hate relationship with them…I love them, but they hate me, but that’s a post for another day!). Basically, I did not properly prep my footwear, so around mile 4, it became unbearable to run from the bruise/blister/thingie they created on the side of my foot. Good news is, for those 4 miles, I tested out the Galloway method and I’d say it worked pretty well! I’m not saying I want to do it for every 1/2 marathon, but I think I can make it work for Disneyland. I felt good (except for my foot) when I was done, and it was the fastest 4 miles I’ve done yet. So, there you go.
And here we go!
Monday – Rest Day (recover from MAJOR jetlag) / 7 push-ups
Tuesday – 4 Mile Bike Ride, 10 push-ups

Saturday – 12 Push-ups, 3 mile walk, pack for HONEYMOON (yay!)
Sunday – 4.17 Miles, 15 Push-ups.
So, ummm, yeah, I leave for my honeymoon tonight! I’m still going to try and blog while I’m away. No I’m not crazy. Since one of the main reasons I started this is to be held accountable for the training I do (or don’t do), I don’t want to use my vacation as an excuse to slack off. Therefore, I must blog!
