WDW Half Training: Week 12 Recap

This week did not go as planned either. I was better about getting some cardio and fitness in, but not the way I expected. I had planned to run Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday, but that didn’t happen. On Tuesday I had to take my parents to the airport in the wee hours of the morning….

Feel Full for Hours

WDW Half Marathon Training: Weeks 10 & 11

November has not been a good month. I underestimated how jet-lagged I would be traveling back and forth to the West Coast. Surprisingly, the workouts I have been getting in are while I’m on the road instead of at home. During week 10 of training, I got one run in on Friday. I had ever…

WDW Half Marathon Training: Weeks 8 & 9

These past two weeks have flown by, but they were not the best for running due to my travel schedule. During week seven I got two runs in on Tuesday and Wednesday before I left for Las Vegas. Tuesday I ran 2.36 miles at a 12:36 average pace. On Wednesday I ran 2.18 miles at…

WDW Half Marathon Training: Week 7 Recap

This week was about getting back on track after last week didn’t go so well. I started off the week with a yoga class that included a lot of hip opener stretches, which were painful bliss and needed. I’m not sure how opened they remained though because Tuesday I went out for me first run…

WDW Half Marathon Training: Weeks 5 & 6 Recap

These past two weeks have not been my best training weeks. I had a plan but it didn’t totally work out. I started out week five with a Monday morning run. If you read my previous training post, you’ll know I can’t stand Monday morning runs. However, based on the week that was how it…

WDW Half Training: Week 4

Coming off of week three, I was still feeling motivated. I kicked off week four with a Monday morning run, which is super rare for me. It is extremely hard for me to get up before 7am on a Monday, but based on my schedule for the week, a Monday run made the most sense…

5 Ways to Stick to a Workout Plan

We’ve all been there. We find a new workout to try, we do it for a bit, and then we drift in to our old habits. A few months back I wrote about how difficult it was for me to stick with a routine. Over the past few months I’ve been extremely good about staying…

WDW Half Marathon Training: Week 3 Recap

Another week has come and gone, and despite some challenges, I got through my training program. My first run was on Tuesday. I did not get up in the morning to go for a run, which I normally do so I had to force myself to go to the gym after work. It was a…

WDW Half Marathon Training: Weeks 1 & 2 Recap

I’ve made it through the first two weeks of my training program for the Walt Disney World Half Marathon. Last week I recaped my first run, but here’s how the rest of my training has gone to this point. The second run of week one was a bit harder than the first. The humidity was…

WDW Half…Here I Come

Today marked the first day of training for the Walt Disney World Half Marathon┬átaking place in January. I kicked off the morning with a 30 minute run.
