11 miles to Udon

Safari Park Half Marathon is a week from this Sunday!

After following a pretty strict training plan for Carlsbad Half, I felt I needed to get a long run in 2 weeks before the race!

Since I was out-of-town & it rained this past weekend, Missi, Michelle & I decided to fit our long run in on Tuesday night.  Our goal was to get in 12 long slow miles.

We didn’t map it out & ended up with 11.  If you can run 13.1 you can run 11 right?

It was dark, cold & long but we had a good run chatting as we went.  If it wasn’t for this planned run together I don’t think any of us would’ve done it alone.  Sometimes a running buddy is all you need!

Now I’m a little confused about how I should adjust my running schedule for the rest of this week but I’m going to play it by ear and see how I feel.

After my run & Todd’s rugby practice we met up to go eat at a restaurant Todd had in mind.

There was a restaurant by his work called Ume no ya where he’d go to order Udon for lunch.  Unfortunately, they shut down & he hasn’t had Udon ‘that good’ since then.

After some yelp searching he found out that the owners joined with Ichiro Japanese restaurant & kept their recipes alive.  We had to go & try it out.

I ordered a noodle bowl with soba noodles, tempura shrimp & squash, chicken, veggies & an egg.  It was pretty good except for the chicken.  Too much of it & it didn’t taste like anything.  Next time I’d rather them leave it out & add another egg.  The egg was hidden under my noodles and was an awesome surprise!

Eating this noodle bowl makes me want to go back to Tofu House where they give you raw eggs to crack into your hot dish at the table.  So fun!

It’s hump day! So much to do so little time..  Anyone have any tricks to wake up earlier?  I wake up and always get back into bed.  I then proceed to fall back asleep & push snooze for 1/2 hour to an hour before actually waking up.

There is so much I could do if I get my butt out of bed! Even if it’s just to eat breakfast at home.  Any thoughts?

  1. Tammy, check out the Sleep Cycle app. It works decently you to wake you up at the best time during your sleep cycle. At the very least it’s cool to see a graph of how well you slept every night.
