This past week was pretty relaxing. I had Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday off. Pretty weird to have so much time off.
I was also able to register early for the Tinker Bell Half Marathon weekend courtesy of my brother's annual pass. Originally, I was just planning to run the half. Then I added the 5k that I'll be walking with a friend- I've already promised her I won't make her run. ;) Then I couldn't resist the 10k. *shiny bling* I figured I'm already training for the 10k/half combo for Dumbo in less than 2 months and I don't think I'll be running Tink again in the near future (I want to do the other runDisney races, too), so might as well. I consider it making up for the past couple years when I only ran one race a year. ;)
I'll be earning my wings... or something very similar!
Now, onto the training portion of my week. Last week I confessed that I'd totally fallen off the training wagon. I put a plan into place with a short two week goal and cutting out alcohol (with the exception of the holiday). So far so good! I did celebrate our great nation with some beer... and wine. ;) I stuck to running on the days I planned, but my mileage varied. Over all, I'm pretty pleased with how things went. This was my plan to get back on track with my running:
Tuesday/Thursday/Friday- short runs of 2-3 miles in the morning
Sunday- long run of 10 miles
Monday/Wednesday- stretching and a few sets of push ups and sit ups
Tues: 2 miles
Thurs: 6 miles
Fri: 1.5 miles
Sun: 8.8 miles (best 10k to date at 1:01:00)
Mon: stretching, push ups/sit ups
One of my goals for June was to run a 10k in an hour. That didn't happen in June, but I've still been working towards it. On Sunday's long run, I ran my best 10k at an hour and one minute. AHHHHH!!! I can't believe I missed it by one minute! Alas, until next time. It was a great run though. I ran the entire time, only breaking at the 5k mark to eat a Shot Blok and drink some water.
How was your week? Will any of you be registering for Tinker Bell weekend?
