Day 10 - Thursday 11.10.2011
Outside Slow Run - Temp: 30 F Wind: 5mph
Miles: 3.04 Time: 27:39

Tonight I needed a nice, easy, slow run so I headed out the door with my iPod set to a mellow playlist.  I hit the road at 5:30pm and it was already dark.  Most of the path is lit with street lights but some stretches get pretty dark.  I need to find a light to wear, I have heard they have some that you can wear on your ankle or wrist. 
My playlist consisted of all the Incubus songs I have on my iPod.

Day 11 - Friday 11.11.2011 - Veterans Day
Outdoor Run - Temp 47F Wind 15mph

I ran today in honor of my brother, Travis.  I thank God everyday that he made it home safely from Iraq and our family is truly blessed to have him in our lives.

Today I just did a short run and a quick full body workout because we are going to spend the day with family so I didn't have much time this morning.  Have a great weekend! :)

17 days to go!!!

I finished out my workout with a really good stretch which included this video from Tone It Up trainer, Karena Dawn. 

Day 14 - Monday 11.14.2011
Treadmill Run
Miles 2.73 Time 25:00 Calories Burned 442

I couldn't decide what I wanted to do today on the treadmill.  I just knew I didn't feel like battling the wind outside today.  So when I jumped on for my run I just made it up as I went hoping to keep it simple so I could remember it when writing it down to share with you!

Only 16 days left...WOW! :)

Day 15 - Tuesday 11.15.2011 (HALFWAY DONE!!!)
Incline Run on Treadmill
Miles 4 Time 45:00 Calories Burned 752

I found this workout in a blog post by Carrots 'n' Cake.  All I can say is WOW!  This one gets the sweat drippin' and the heart pumpin'!  I loved this workout, it's a keeper.

So here I am at the halfway point of my 30 day running challenge and I'm feeling pretty fantastic about it!  My goal is to run 100 miles during this challenge.  So far I have logged 47.42 miles, so I am pretty close to being on track with my goal.  I WILL DO IT!  :)  Thank you to all the TIU girls for keeping me motivated through this journey! <3

BONUS: I have lost 3.6 pounds since November 1st.  I have been eating 5 small, healthy meals each day.  Example: Breakfast - protein pancake or egg white sandwich, Snack - greek yogurt w/ granola, Lunch - Kale or spinach salad w/ grilled chicken and loaded with veggies, Snack - Luna bar or apple w/ peanut butter, Dinner - 4 oz lean protein and lots of roasted veggies (zucchini, cauli & broccoli) or turkey chili. 

Soon I will try to post some of my running playlists!

Moving on...days 16-30 here I come!! :)
