The Fairest Week In Review: 11/17

Mickey running

Oh, week in review, why must you remind me that just last week I was in Walt Disney World? Getting hit by a wave of premature nostalgia in three… two…

Sunday | Wine & Dine Half Marathon; walked around WDW
My phone seems to think I walked a good 11+ plus miles in addition to the race, but I am inclined to consider it an unreliable narrator.

Monday | walked around WDW
According to the phone: 10.7 miles walked. I had planned to run around Hourglass Lake that morning for the fun of it, but I was way too tired to even consider such craziness.

Tuesday | walked 2.29 miles outside in 40 minutes; 70 minute ballet class

Wednesday | rest
I was going to run, but I was experiencing some residual soreness and elected to skip it. It goes against the grain, but I want to try this new thing where I don’t injure myself over the winter. So far so good; we’ll see how it goes.

Thursday | walked 2.28 miles in 40 minutes; 70 minute ballet class

Friday | ran 5.24 miles on the treadmill in 60 minutes
First training run since before MCM. It was weird.

Saturday | rest

And now we are once more unto the breach, dear friends: training begins anew for the WDW Marathon. Challenge: don’t get hurt and don’t get bored.

Look, you keep morale up your way and I’ll do my way.
