The Fairest Week In Review: 8/30

Main Street Electrical Parade

Did anyone watch Disney’s live stream of the Main Street Electrical Parade on Sunday night? I did, and was both distressed and baffled by their decision to cut away halfway through the parade and start talking to random park visitors about, like, their favorite to snack to eat while watching the parade or whatever. I thought for sure they’d cut back to the parade where they left off but NO; they SKIPPED a whole chunk of it. WTF? I missed the donkey boys! 🙁 A truly ludicrous occurrence and I’m still kinda sad about it.

First world problems aside, here’s how my training went last week:

Sunday | rest

Monday | ran 17.35 miles on the treadmill in 3:00 hours like a BOSS
My prep run for the National Capital 20 Miler next month; my goal was 16 miles but in the back of my mind I knew I wanted 17. Annnnnd I did it! Click here to find out how I managed to make it happen without dying of dread and/or boredom.

Tuesday | walked 2.12 miles outside in 35 minutes

Wednesday | ran 10.05 miles outside in 1:50
My hip was just a touch sore after Monday’s long run, but nothing I couldn’t handle. I may grab some KT Tape and slap it on for my upcoming races as a precautionary measure.

Thursday | walked 2.12 miles outside in 35 minutes
Either that, or I went back in time and did Tuesday’s walk again. Hard to be sure.

Friday | ran 4.42 miles on the treadmill in 50 minutes

Saturday | rest

So that’s my thing. How have your guys been doing?

  1. You are definitely not alone in your annoyance about the livestream! Like… I'm really happy for those people that they interviewed for being at Disney and all, but I'm over here trying to live vicariously and they're really not letting it happen.
