Good morning and Happy Sunday! Anyone racing this weekend? Long runs on the schedule? I ran 3 on Friday and 6 on Saturday as a back to back Goofy training run. I will probably do the same thing this weekend and then the weekend after that the race will be here! It snuck up on me so quickly, but I do believe I will complete my goal of finishing in an upright position.
So, what was I up to this week? First of all, in case you missed it yesterday? I was completely thrilled and humbled to be named one of Women’s Magazine’s top 12 favorite bloggers on the run for 2012. There are some amazing ladies listed so be sure to check out their blogs!
As far as workouts went, this is what I did Christmas week:
Sunday: 3 mile run
Thursday: 30 minutes bike, upper body weights
Friday: 3 miles treadmill, upper body weights
Saturday: 6 miles, upper body weights
So three rest days isn’t ideal, but hey, it was Christmas and I would much rather be spending time with my family! Plus, my chiropractor thinks something is up with my Achilles and wanted me to take it easy. He put some KT tape on it and I will continue to keep it taped through race day.
Yesterday, I was not prepared for the cold, windy and overcast weather, and froze on our run. Probably should have worn pants. Oops. It was about 40 when we started but man, that wind makes it so much worse. I think I dislike it more than the cold.
I cannot believe we are so close to Goofy, I am starting to get really excited about running, being in my favorite place, and seeing some runner friends! Who will be joining me?
QOTD: Who will be in Disney in a couple weeks? What bowl games have you been watching?
