This weekend’s Wine and Dine half marathon did not turn out remotely like I expected, which I’ll talk more about tomorrow. Let’s just say this week’s total mileage ended up 6 miles short. Ah well – it was still a fun race to end my racing year with.
Monday 30 minute walk and yoga – stretching and taking it easy
Tuesday I was supposed to run, but never made the time. Instead, I got in a 30 minute walk and a haircut with a glass of wine. 🙂 I also did some strength work.
Wednesday A 30 minute run with some fartleks thrown in for fun.
Thursday Travel day! Loads of walking throughout the day
Friday Magic Kingdom and a trip to the Expo, so I got loads of steps. 17,000+ steps on the day before I had two races may not have been the wisest, but we had fun!
Saturday The Jingle Jungle 5K in the morning, plus the Wine and Dine Half-Half Marathon in the evening. Thrown in the middle of those two races was Oliver’s mad dash of a 200 meter run. Long story short (whole story coming tomorrow), thanks to “red flag” heat conditions and a scary thunderstorm cell coming through, the half marathon was delayed by an hour and shortened by 6 miles to about 7 miles. It was still fun and I’m super impressed with how smoothly things were handled for the most part. My good deed this week is helping another runner out of her costume (a giant gift box) after the 5K so she could get back on the bus.
Sunday Another big walking day, with 20,000+ steps at Epcot as an active recovery from my race. 🙂 My NSV is the fact that I didn’t eat all of my dessert at dinner. I just didn’t love it, so even though I had a little of that “I’ve earned it” mentality, I didn’t waste the calories on something that wasn’t worth it.
This week I’m grateful for the opportunity to travel for things like this and for safe travels so far. Wish us safe traveling vibes for the return trip! I’m also grateful that RunDisney was able to put together an event that was still fun for us despite the changes they needed to make to keep us safe,
