RAD Reads and Weekly Review: December 30, 2012

I can’t believer this is the last RAD Reads and Weekly Review of 2012…what a year!!  Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would run 3 half marathons, 3 5Ks and 1 10-miler in a year, but I did it!  This year has be an amazing journey and a wild ride…I’ve loved every moment of it and I can’t thank you enough for coming along!

Weekly Review
I’m going to be honest here…I’m at the point where I’m terrified of injury before the WDW Marathon and I think I’m using this as an excuse to not run.  Yes, I know this is completely ridiculous and the opposite of what I should be doing.  I haven’t had many workouts this week due to the holiday and then my in-laws were over today to celebrate Christmas 2.0 and I’m definitely feeling sluggish because of it.  Or maybe it’s all the rich food I’ve been eating…

Who know’s what is causing my slacking behavior, but I hope I can get this turned around soon!  Here’s my full week of workouts and to see my full WODs, head over to my page on dailymile.

Monday: Rest
Tuesday: Rest
Wednesday: CrossFit – 1 hour – Back Squats, PullUps and Amraps

For the next 2 weeks (well after New Year’s Eve!), I will be focusing on prepping my body for the WDW Marathon.  Clean eating, stretching, hydration, short runs and moderate cross training.  I need to stay healthy and strong.  What do you do to prep for a big race?

Happy New Year to you and your family!  Make 2013 your best ever!
