Disney Princess Half Marathon and what's next
Wow, I can't believe it's been a week since the Disney Princess Half, and I haven't even had time to blog about it!
We had a really great weekend last weekend in Orlando. My oldest daughter, Kaitlyn, never gets to go anywhere with us, an... Read more
Disney Princess Half Marathon Training Week 10
This week did not go at all as I had planned! So it's time for an adjustment to my program to try to get back on track!
Monday I went to the gym and ran 5 miles as planned. I felt good while running, but soon after I got home, my body sta... Read more
Disney Princess Half Marathon Training Week 9
This week did not turn out like I had planned! I did get in some good exercise, but it didn't even resemble my plan for the week! Oh well, a good shake-up is good for a change, right?
Monday I was really looking forward to getting in a lo... Read more
Disney Princess Half Marathon Training, Week 8
This week started out great. I had a good run on Monday. I had a really good workout on Tuesday. I wasn't able to go to the gym on Wednesday, because I didn't want to take the kids to the childcare room while they were recovering from pneumon... Read more
Disney Princess Half Marathon Training Week 7
Between sick kiddos and me not feeling well, this week turned out to be a total loss! I did make it to gym one day, but soon found out that I should have stuck with a slow, easy run rather than trying to do an intense workout. I got in 30 minu... Read more
Disney Princess Half Marathon Training Week 6
Again, I had another good week as far as running. I was even able to get outside for one of my runs! I had one good upper body workout, and a good elliptical workout. Eating was still a bit on the bad side, but now it's a new year, new rules!... Read more
Disney Princess Half Marathon Training, Week 5
Despite this being an extremely busy week with the holidays, I did manage to get to the gym 4 days. We won't discuss eating this week, on the other hand! LOL!
Monday I ran 4.25 miles at the gym. Tuesday I went 50 minutes on the elliptica... Read more
Disney Princess Half Marathon Training Week 4
This week was a little bit better than last week! I did run 3 times, used the elliptical twice, and did ST once. Eating wasn't real bad, but no where near perfect! Still working on getting all the water I should be drinking.
I ran 2 mile... Read more
Disney Princess Half Marathon Training, Week 3
I decided that this was going to be another week of rest, at least for running. But of course, I let myself get out ST also! Ugh! I did get on the exercise bike for 40 minutes on Tuesday, even though that is my absolute last choice for cardio... Read more
Disney Princess Half Marathon Training Week 2 (or not!)
This week turned out to be a rest week, after a painful run on Monday. It was a really bad week all around. I did not run. I was in pain, so I did not do any ST or any kind of cross training. And since I was in pain, I ate! Ugh! I do not w... Read more
Disney Princess Half Marathon Training Week 1
Well, my running went fairly well last week, but not so good on the eating! I thought I could handle Thanksgiving and all the goodies, but I was WRONG! Ugh! I let my water slide, I ate too much, everything!! I also didn't get any ST done! W... Read more
Recovery Week 2 and Outback Scramble report
This was a pretty good week! I got in 3 runs, a really good ST session, and I lost 5 lbs!
I ran 3 miles Monday afternoon. It went a little easier (and faster) than the 3 miles I did last Saturday. I was supposed to run 5 miles on Wedn... Read more
Recovery Week and what's next
I had a pretty lazy recovery week! I was dealing with some foot pain, so I didn't even get out of the walks that I thought I would do. We had absolutely gorgeous weather for November, but between my foot pain and the kids being sick, I didn't ... Read more
Monumental Half Marathon Race Report
Okay, I'm finally getting around to writing my race report!
I was way more nervous for this race than I have been for any other race I had ran so far! I'm not sure why. My training went great, and I knew that unless something drastic ha... Read more
Monumental Half Marathon Training, Week 13
Last week was another bad week for me. I have felt like I'm fighting off a cold since shortly after my run on Monday. I've had a sore throat, headache and stuffiness. I did get myself out for a run on Saturday, despite not feeling the great... Read more
