RAD Reads and Weekly Review: August 4, 2013

Did you see that the course maps were released this week for Disneyland Half Marathon Weekend??  I LOVE LOVE LOVE how most of the 10K course takes place in the two parks.  This is going to be such a FUN race!

I FINALLY booked my hotel room for the trip and now all I have to do is show up!  Let’s not talk about those flights yet…sigh.

And here’s what’s been happening over on RAD Living:

Now on to some RAD Reads!

Weekly Review
It took me a few days to recoup from my mom’s visit and our trip to Foxwoods in particular.  I overindulged in food and drink…so worth it, but it knocked all the energy out of me! So the beginning of my week was lackluster, but the end of the week sure made up for it! To view a complete list of WODs, visit my dailymile page.

Sunday: Rest
Monday: Rest
Tuesday: Rest
Wednesday: CrossFit: Push Jerk, Row, Air Dyne
Thursday: CrossFit: Sled Push, Wall Balls, Air Dyne
Friday: CrossFit: All the Squats!
Saturday: Rest

My legs were shot after 3 days of tough lower body WODs at CrossFit.  I could hardly walk yesterday.  I think our coach is trying to kill us after returning from the CrossFit Games!  But I’m looking forward to what’s in store this week…guess I’m a glutton for punishment 🙂

Have a great week and remember to Be RAD!

      Well you MUST start with a trip to Disney! It’s so much fun 🙂
      Disney races (5Ks in particular) are a great way to get into running. There is a ton of entertainment and the atmosphere is much more laid back than other races.

  9. I just signed up for a 5k in October. Running a 10k would be the next step…running it at Disney would be even better! Good luck!
