RAD Reads & Weekly Review: August 11, 2013

Earlier this week I announced that I will be having a meet up during Disneyland Half Marathon Weekend. If you’re going to be out for any of the races that weekend I hope you’ll be able to stop by.  You can RSVP here.


My planning for this trip is coming along.  Hotel is booked, dining reservations are made and I’m beginning to get a plan together for touring the parks. I really can’t believe the races are only 3 weeks away!

In other runDisney news this week, the 2014 Walt Disney World Marathon sold out! The only event still available for that weekend is Goofy’s Race and a Half Challenge, but that’s already 92% full.  So if you’ve been thinking about participating, don’t hesitate!

In case you missed it, here’s what’s new on Running at Disney this week:

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

Disney Posts

A Pinch of Pixie Dust finds some charming corners at the Yacht Club Resort.

DIStherapy takes a look at Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride.  I can’t wait to experience this again in a few weeks!

Weekly Review
This week I tried Nuun as a substitute for Gatorade, but sadly that didn’t workout so well.  It wrecked havoc on my digestive system and killed my workout on Tuesday.  I guess I’ll be crossing that one off the list.  Seems like a combo of Gatorade, coconut water and plain ole water is what works for me and I’ll be sticking to it.  Here are the rest of my workouts from this week and to view a complete list of WODs, visit my dailymile page.

Sunday: Rest
Monday: CrossFit: K2E, Squats & Run
Tuesday: CrossFit: Power Cleans, RDL, Burpee Box Jumps
Wednesday: Rest
Thursday: CrossFit: K2E, Manmakers & AD
Friday: Rest
Saturday: Rest

I think we’re coming up on a testing week at the gym which is something I also look forward to.  Bring on the heavy squats!

Have a great week and remember to Be RAD!
