Half Marathon Mondays: Geared Up

Hi Friends -

I hope you all have survived Monday. It was a tough one for me, as I have been feeling a little under the weather today. Thank goodness Mondays are rest days for the half marathon training.

Last week was a difficult one for us in training. We ran four days straight with no rest - and Friday we ran seven miles. It hurt. That is an understatement to say the least. I recognize the im
portance of the rest day now. Ha! We definitely won't be trying to cram a whole week's worth of training in just a few days.

Okay - let's chat running gear. Last we
ek I told y'all about my obsession with Nike+ GPS. I need to tell you about another Nike product I just love... My hydration belt.

Running long distances, it is hard to stay hydrated. I seriously HATE carrying a water bottle. A while back ago, Hubs brought home this water belt... but let's call it what it really is - A fanny
pack.



Not only did this thing look ridiculous, but it was horrible to run in. It bounced around like crazy. I fidgeted with the thing the entire time we ran. Needless to say, I only ran with it once.

While out running one day, I started noticing many of the other (legit) runners had water belts with flat bottles. They weren't bouncing at all! That was the answer!

After searching high and low for a hydration belt that also had a ouch large enough to hold my iPhone, I found this one by Nike.


It is seriously amazing. I might still look nerdy, but hey - at least it's not a fanny pack!



This week's training requires
Monday: Rest
Tuesday: 3 miles
Wednesday: 4 miles
Thursday: 3 miles
Friday: Rest
Saturday: 8 miles
Sunday: Cross Training

Wish us luck! Hope everyone has a fabulous week! Talk soon, friends!

xoxo,
Brandi Nell
