Good morning from Disney World! I am here at the Grand Floridian for the next three days! (Remember, I am a travel agent and can book your Disney vacation for you…at no extra cost to you!) Today we are hitting up Hollywood Studios and having a fabulous nice dinner at California Grill at the Contemporary. Yum!
Because I ran a half marathon last Sunday, this week’s workouts were definitely lax. I wanted to be sure to recover well since I ended up being injured and since it was so hot! I can happily report my hip is no longer bothering me. I have only run once since the race though..so not sure what to think of it. Anyway, here we go!
Sunday: Half marathon number 12
Monday: rest and ice
Tuesday: upper body weights, abs
Wednesday: yoga, 10 minutes elliptical
Thursday: ran 2.5 miles of intervals at race pace, upper body weights
Friday: 15 minutes elliptical, upper body weights and abs
Saturday: rest/travel day
miles run: 15.5
yoga: 1, one hour class
cross training: X’s 2
weights: X’s 3
For the week after a race….I’ll take it. Not my finest week but at least I wasn’t sitting on the couch doing nothing, right?
and don’t worry. I will be working out on vacation and may hit my favorite running trails while I am in WDW!

QOTD: What does your recovery week look like after a big race?
