RAD Reads and Weekly Review: June 9, 2013
|June 9, 2013||Posted by Running at Disney under RAD Reads, RAD Recaps, Weekly Review|
Well it’s been an exhausting week! I had a regional conference for work that I was managing with the 5 other New England States this week, and I spent Tuesday – Thursday out at the MGM Grand at Foxwoods. It was an exhausting few days full of long hours running around, schmoozing and stuffing tote bags.
But I did manage to have some fun along the way! My room had an amazing view…
I had a few cocktails and some wonderful meals…
And I met some new friends…
Somehow I managed to get a few posts together this week mainly consisting of runDisney news…here’s what you might have missed:
- Coast to Coast Challenge Update
- Disney’s Princess Half Marathon News and Registration Info
- Friday Feast: Coral Reef Restaurant
And now on to some RAD Reads!

Well, I definitely didn’t keep up with my training this week. The gym at the hotel didn’t open until 6:30 am and since I had to be on the floor by 7:30 am that wasn’t going to work. But thanks to my new Fitbit Flex (full review coming this week!), I was able keep track of all the walking I did while at the conference! Here’s how it went down and as always, to view a complete list of WODs, visit my dailymile page.
Sunday: 4.72 mile run
Monday: CrossFit: Squats all day long
Tuesday: 2.17 mile run (inc. 1 mile hill sprints) + 5 miles conference walking
Wednesday: 4.5 miles conference walking
Thursday: 3 miles conference walking
Friday: CrossFit: Deadlifts & Pushups
Next Saturday, I’m participating in the Gladiator Gauntlet, a fundraiser for the Make-A-Wish Foundation being put on by my box CrossFit Milford.
We haven’t been given many details about the event, but I do know that teams of 4 have to “complete a 2.5 mile course through streams, woods, fields, up, over, under, obstacles and finish different mini WODs along the way.” I’m expecting muddy burpees, log carrying and who knows what else…wish me luck!
