We’re only 3 days into the new year and even though I’m still on a bit of a workout “break”, I’m doing pretty good with the workouts! Got in a 4 mile run on New Year’s Day and snuck in a brisk 3 mile evening run tonight. I came home from work, actually PUT MY PAJAMAS ON then said, what the heck are you doing – go out and run. So I did. I love it when I talk to myself – the bossy me is so bossy.
My next big race is the Disney Princess Half in Orlando next month – 7 weeks!! I start my training in earnest for this next week so for now I continue to enjoy my “leisure” time. Last year I ran in 10 races, the last one a half in early December and my body was e-x-h-a-u-s-t-e-d. So, I decided to take a little break. From running, working out, everything. The rest has been fantastic but now I’m eager to get back into a routine. My training plan? running 3 times a week, long runs on Saturday. Strength training (with my personal trainer) 2 times a week, yoga and/or rest on the off days 🙂 I’ll be ready in no time!
So, about this half… I have never participated in a Disney event before but I hear they are fantastic! The costumes, the characters, the weather, the atmosphere, I am beyond excited. I just booked my hotel and will be staying at the resort. Start and finish line at Epcot, nice flat course perfect for a potential PR – hmm, could I hit one of my 2013 goals already?? And the bling…
I also started thinking about the costume and have made a decision on what it will be – won’t disclose what it is just yet but will start “pulling it together” this weekend. A tiara will most definitely be involved. Stay tuned. 😉
