Happy Friday, peeps!
I thought I’d catch you up on my half marathon training: some people have been surprised to hear that @TheWelshWookie and I are going on runeymoon, but after I’ve explained that we’re able to combine a love of running with some sightseeing and relaxation, it makes more sense to them. I’m still following my Hal Higdon plan really closely, and the training is still going well. I missed one run last Saturday, but that’s really the first missed run and I’m already at the end of week 7’s training plan.
Unfortunately, @TheWelshWookie slipped on some grass when playing football with the nephews on Sunday and has re-injured his knee, so he’s not run this week. Yet. Hopefully he’ll be back to it soon enough!
My Around the World Running Blog Relay mileage is about on target: I’ve already gotten in 57.96 kilometres so far, and with a 9 miler planned for tomorrow I should be adding more to that this week.
Also, it’s almost time for The 5×50 Challenge 2014. We signed up for this back in mid-December, and time has flown in, as it now kicks off in eight days: next Sunday! I’m really looking forward to it, as I know it combined with #ATWRBR2014 will definitely keep me on track!
In wedding news, everything is in a bit of a lull: everything is organised, and I’m now just waiting to carry out the last minute things that can’t be done in advance. It’s three weeks today: I can’t wait!
How are your challenges going?

I love that you’re going on a runeymoon! 🙂 3 weeks, so exciting!
I can’t believe it’s all happening three weeks today! 🙂
Your wedding is so close! How exciting for you guys. I think a runeymoon sounds like a great holiday – do a race and then go sightseeing/eating/drinking. Perfect!
I think so too 🙂
I think that sounds like the best honeymood idea ever! If I had my choice, I would only take trips where a race was involved at least somewhere! Can’t believe it’s so soon!
I know, it has flown in! I’m the same 🙂
The Running Princess and I went on a runeymoon also, it was great fun! I’ve done 22 miles this week so far so might through in another 10k tomorrow 🙂
We did indeed have a runeymoon and it was brilliant so I’m sure you’ll have a great time.
I’m currently enjoying the first week of my taper and feeling good.
Glad you’re coping with the taper, hope you’re enjoying the reduction a little!
Great minds think alike! Hope you got in your 10k 🙂
Wedding fun- I love it!!!! How exciting!!! I’m glad everything is ready to go!!!
A runneymoon? Dang, I wish I had come up with that. I like it. You’re running 9 tomorrow? I was planning on that too. Guess I’ll have to make it 9.1 🙂
9 miles done! 😉 enjoy your 9+…….
Haha, I thought about your on my run. It was an accident, but I went 9.3.
Lol, I’ll bet!
Three weeks to go.. enjoy this special time!!!
Oh no! Hope his knee feels better quick!
It was much better today, thankfully!
Caught up…now I see why @TheWelshWookie is having knee troubles. Hope it is feeling even better now.
Oh, he’s much better – thanks! 😀
