The Fairest Week In Review: 7/31

Before diving into the week in review, a quick housekeeping note: back many years ago, when I shared this blog with my girl Moon, we developed two keywords to demarcate our solo posts: Just Jenn and Just Moon. Although Moon left the blog a long time ago, I've been continuing to mark most posts as Just Jenn, even though by now that's going to be a given. Not anymore - the keyword is officially retired. I expect this to have zero impact on anyone at all ever, but I wanted to make note in case unforeseen confusion arose.

As far as you know!

With that out of the way, let's take it to the workout log:

Sunday | ran 5.1 miles outside in 50 minutes
Since the Twilighter 8K was a mere 5 miles, I chose to run another 5 the next day to complete my usual long run in two parts. Unfortunately, this proved to be overdoing it - I wound up with a bum knee for no clear reason by the end of the run which followed me into my day...

Monday | 45 minute ballet class
... and into the next. My knee still unhappy, I skipped my usual walk and modified or skipped some of my usual ballet moves.

Tuesday | 30 minutes of arm and ab work
I wanted to learn from my past mistakes and really give my knee recovery time, so I skipped my usual run and horned in on Pat's workout instead. Among other things we really worked my arms, which are historically about as strong as a T-Rex's if that T-Rex is made of spaghetti. Active rest days aside, I'm hoping to incorporate some of this work into my regular workout schedule in the future.

Wednesday | 40 minute hip hop dance class (theoretically)
My hip hop dance class turned into an almost exclusively workout class; the instructor got caught in the Metro and since we got a late start we mostly ran through more ab exercises. That's fine with me; I'd rather do a million crunches than perform hip hop dance steps. I'm mostly just paying lip service to trying things outside my comfort zone. >D

Thursday | ran 3.32 miles outside in 35 minutes; walked 2.06 miles outside in 35 minutes
After a successful series of jumping jacks the night before, I taped the bejeezus out of my knees and tried a quick run - and it worked!

Friday | ran 5.26 miles outside in 55 minutes; walked 2.13 miles outside in 35 minutes
Still doing a-okay. Now please knock on wood for safety.

Saturday | 20 minutes of arm and ab work
Pat and I got up early to get in a quick workout before heading off to a David Byrne concert. His suit was the regular size. (David Byrne's, I mean. Not Pat's. Pat wore a t-shirt.)

So it's been quite a week. Roundup, take us home:

Fairytales & Fitness explores Fort Wilderness on horseback. Pondering a trail ride to top off my marathon trip in January...
Gluten-Free & Dairy-Free In WDW enjoys a pretty sweet Remy brunch...
- ... and The Disney Tourist Blog tries out Brunch at the Top at the Contemporary.
The Main Street Gazette offers vintage photos of Spaceship Earth.
Disney In Your Day puts Cinderella's Royal Table to the test.
Disney Travel Babble has more trip reporting straight from Disneyland Paris.
A Pinch Of Pixie Dust investigates the Beach Club's club level.
Kait Around The Kingdom checks out Boma. Shoot, should I make an ADR for my Kidani trip there too...?
