Another week has flown by! I think the closer we get to the race, the faster it's going. I remember thinking about how there were all these RunDisney races before "my" race...Dumbo Double Dare, Tower of Terror 10 miler, Wine & Dine...and Wine and Dine is officially over! Wow! Speaking of that, congratulations to those of you that ran Wine & Dine last night! I was following until I went to sleep (basically before you even started running. LOL) and was excited this morning to wake up and see all your pics and bling.
I had a sore start this week, Monday I was still sore from really pushing on the 10K Saturday. Soreness was totally worth the PR, however! I just took it slow. I got all three of my runs in for the week, my long run was just 4.5 miles. The mileage only goes up from here! I was thinking about how I have learned to not push my body TOO much, and how much better my running feels when I'm not pushing to the brink of injury. I can be a bit of an extremist, if you hadn't noticed. Lauren came across some of those motivational quotes that have been redefined, and I loved them! This one was perfect for me and where I'm at right now, it really resonated with me:
I feel really good about my training as of late, and really balanced.
In other news, we are approaching 100 days until the trip/race and so Wednesday I'm doing a big Disney Day with Savannah & Eleanor. I have amassed a list of 100 magical items (mostly from around my house) that I'll decorate with and we'll have Disney themed food as well. Should be fun to celebrate our 100 days. Yesterday I also customized our magic bands! For whatever reason, yesterday they opened up February and you can choose your color/name for your bands. We actually got to choose two each because we have a split stay. Naturally one of my bands was BLUE, to match my Princess Half Marathon costume. ;)
I hope everyone had a nice week, I'm gearing up for the holidays, my busiest time for petsitting. I have already seen Christmas lights on houses? Has anyone else noticed this?
