RAD Reads and Weekly Review: May 26, 2013

I just got back from a super fun weekend getaway to Vermont!  I got to play with a lot of goats and eat a lot of cheese…perfect weekend in my book!  I’ll be posting quite a few recaps in the coming weeks from our trip, so hopefully you’ll enjoy that.  See I can actually enjoy vacations outside of Walt Disney World…shocking, I know!


Pretty quiet week here on RAD.  Work has been insane, I had a friend in from out of town and trying to get some workouts in has eaten up all my time.  But here are a few things incase you missed them:

Another update for The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror 10-Miler, the race is now 91% full!  This is the last long distance runDisney event that is still available for 2013, so get registered if you’re interested.  If not, you get still register for the full marathon in January or wait for the Princess Half Marathon in February…this opens for registration on Tuesday!

Even with my limited time, I did manage to catch up on some blogs while we were driving to and from VT, so here are some RAD Reads for ya!

Weekly Review
As I mentioned earlier, my week has been quite chaotic.  For some reason, May is ALWAYS a very hectic month for me and I can never seem to come up for air!  I have a very large conference for work in the first week of June, so once that is over hopefully things will die down a bit.  I knew I was exhausted when I slept 10 hours each night we were in VT!

My workouts were a bit lackluster because of this.  I had a few early mornings and some late nights that got in the way of my training runs and CrossFit WODs.  Here’s what I did get in and as always, to view a complete list of WODs, visit my dailymile page.

Sunday: 3 miles walking at CrossFit Games
Monday: CrossFit: Overhead Squats & 12 min Amrap
Tuesday: Rest
Wednesday: CrossFit: 2 Amraps
Thursday: Rest
Friday: Rest
Saturday: Rest

Nothing to write home about, but I got some work in…  This week is going to be tough getting back into the swing of things after my food binge this weekend, but I’m going to give it my best!

Fun stuff coming up this week on RAD…Part 2 of my CrossFit Games recap, a look at my Dumbo Double Dare training plan, a look at all my VT food goodness and hopefully a few more things!  Have a great week 🙂

    • We all struggle with it, but to be honest…the more REAL women I see that are strong and fit, the less I want to look like the ones in the magazines.

  • Thanks so much for sharing my Runniversary post! Kerry felt it was important for her story to be shared in hopes that we continue to work towards finding a cure and others don’t have to go through what she did, I’m hoping to do another LLS fundraiser soon!
