RAD Reads and Weekly Review: April 21, 2013

This has been a tough week.  Starting with the tragedy in Boston, I feel like I’ve been in a daze.  I thankfully ended the week by coming to Walt Disney World…my happy place.  But I honestly almost didn’t make it.

Cinderella's Castle

It’s no secret that I really don’t like flying.  I get myself very worked up in the days leading to a trip and because of everything that went on this week, it multiplied my anxiety by 1000.  As I was sitting at the airport, there were a few moments that I almost got up and ran back to my car.  But I just kept talking myself off of the ledge, got on that plane and now I’m here having a blast.  I wish it would get easier…

Like I said, much of my week revolved around Boston, but here’s recap of what’s been going on at RAD this week:

And now some RAD Reads from this week…

Running & Fitness Posts
Most of the posts coming out of the running blogging community this week revolve around Boston.  I have a list of a bunch of them here.  You should also check out the Running for Boston in your city the has been organized by Pavement Runner.  This is taking place tomorrow, April 22nd at 6:00 pm across the globe.

Fit2Flex ran a very unorganized race recently.  You will be shocked by why happened…the roads weren’t even closed!!

Running Toward the Prize goes through the process of getting fitted for running shoes…so important!

The Disney Food Blog shares the news of a new ice cream and sorbet shop, L’Artisan des Glace, in France…YUM!

Disney at Work shares an incredibly heartwarming story about the Boston Marathon, Sandy Hook and the Disney 3:00 pm parade.

Weekly Review
I had the best intentions to get at least one (if not 2 runs) while I’m here in WDW, but that doesn’t look like it’s going to happen.  Sometimes you just need a break and that’s what I’m doing.

Earlier in the week I had a few really good days at CrossFit and also got in a 4.09 mile run for Boston.  You can see my complete WODs this week including a bagillion squats on my page on dailymile.

Sunday: Rest
Monday: CrossFit: Squat Cleans, Back Squats, Thrusters & More
Tuesday: 4.09 mile run
Wednesday: CrossFit: Amraps!
Thursday: Rest
Friday: Rest
Saturday: 2+ mile walk around Epcot

Even though I’m not running, you always get a lot of exercise in WDW just from walking around so I’m fine with that.  I sure hope next week is better than last week!!  Have a good one!!
