Wow, less than 6 weeks until The Princess Half Marathon!! I'm seriously stunned. I have dreamed and trained for the past year and it's getting so close! On top of preparing for the race, I have been getting excited about going back to my happy place, and so it's double the excitement!
I decided that I would do a Disney shot each week for the next six WAW's in honor of the upcoming race/trip. Some of them may end up being shots I have posted in the past, but I'll try to pull up some new ones. Today I start with one that is the background on my computer and one of my favorites. I take MANY MANY balloon shots when I'm at WDW. MANY. (I'm kinda obsessed. LOL) This one is one of my favorites because if you look closely at the reflection in the balloons (look at the red one), you can see Main Street. Not sure if it will be big enough for you to see on the blog, I hope so. (if you click on the photo, it should pull up a bigger version of it)
In running news, my knees have finally recovered from my 10 mile run! Shew! It was sketchy there for a bit, I was in some serious pain for two days and worried I had injured my right knee. Just overuse, so hopefully I can work on strengthening them in the coming weeks. In fact, my training plan had me running my long runs every other week with shorter run weeks in between. I have decided that instead of 3 shorter runs on those weeks, I should do 2 runs (seems I need more recovery time anyway after my really long runs) and do one short and one medium-ish run, somewhere around 7-8 miles. Then the other day I can do some strength training.
I think this will give my body the rest in between the longer runs it needs but also give me a couple more longish runs. I feel like running long every 2 weeks may not be enough training. Throwing in a couple 7-8 mile runs seems like a good balance. Anyway, that's the plan!
Are you staying after the PHM to enjoy the parks? How long? What are your plans? I can not get enough when it comes to Disney planning, so tell me about it, I love it!
