RAD Reads and Weekly Review: June 10, 2012

I found some really interesting posts this week out in the blogosphere…check out these RAD Reads!

Running Posts
Adventures with Alexandra HIIT it Hard this week.  Killer workout girl!

Fit2Flex lists her Fitness Bucketlist and it’s seriously impressive!  This is a great idea and something we should all think about to stay on top of our fitness goals.

Sweat Once a Day went for a gorgeous run in the Rocky Mountains…it is absolutely breathtaking.

Run With Kate begins to back away from the heels.  Interesting information on how wearing high heels can actually cause more strains in runners.  A good read if you are an avid heel wearer.

Disney Posts
Disney Avenue takes an indepth look at the best attraction ever…Horizons!  Great videos included.

This Happy Place Blog  visits Disney World with the Baby-Sitters Club!  I used to LOVE this series!

Touring Plans provides an in-depth look at staying at The Art of Animation Resort for the Grown-Ups.  I love how the kitchen tables turn into beds!

The Musings of Jillie D competes in the Brave Highland Games!  This is taking place right now at Epcot.

Weekly Review
It’s been a restful week here.  It took a few days for my legs to feel back to normal and I still wasn’t moving at my normal pace.

Here’s my week in training (or lack there of…):
Sunday: Rest
Monday: Rest
Tuesday: Rest
Wednesday: 2 mile run
Thursday: Spinning – 1 hour
Friday: Rest
Saturday: Rest

This week, I hope to get back to my usual 4-5 days of exercise a week.  This is also the week that I need to decided if I’m going to register for the Walt Disney World Marathon.  The price increases after June 19th, which is also the last day DVC discounts are available, so I’ll be saving $30 by registering this week.  I’m leaning towards registering, but my nerves are still getting the best of me.  Seeing how far I’ve come in the past year gives me the confidence to think I can do it.  At this time last year, I running a half marathon wasn’t even in the realm of possibilities for me.  Now I’ve run 2!  So why not through a marathon into the mix??  You can see I’m trying to talk myself into this, right?

I hope you enjoy your week and the wonderful summer weather.  I just LOVE being able to wear flip flops all the time 🙂

  • Do it! Sign up for the marathon! I signed up for Goofy and I won’t be running my first full until November. I’m a little scared, but if I’m going to do it, Disney is the place, right? Best of luck! 🙂

  • We can do it!!!! I also have fear. i downloaded the galloway training plan to my google calendar today. it isn’t too scary. we have a good base with our recent half marathons. sometimes i think to myself to just register for the half. that would be so much easier. But then where is the challenge that we are going for?

  • Good luck with your decision on the Marathon…I know you can do it! =) I’m trying to decide whether or not to sign up for the Tinkerbell half…it’s scary! I know you’ll rock it if you do it!!

    • Thanks Steph! You can totally do a half. All you have to do is sign up and then you have a real goal to work towards. It makes it much harder to slack on training when that race is looming over your shoulder. How about Princess 2013??

  • Disney Avenue would like to thank you for spreading the word for our site! As a way to say thank you I will be making a post soon about your site as it is extremely informative and interesting! Thanks again for helping us spread the word! Your friends at Disney Avenue!
