RAD Reads and Weekly Review: October 13, 2013

I seriously become incommunicado when I travel.  It’s like my brain shuts down and I can’t even muster the strength to open up my laptop.  I guess that’s a good thing so I actually live in the moment and enjoy my vacation, right?  Anywho…I got back from a whirlwind weekend in Walt Disney World for The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror 10-Miler (full recap coming this week!) and then dove right into a seriously hectic work week that involved numerous events and a trip to Boston.  Gah!  Disney trips always leave me needing a vacation from my vacation, but I would give anything to be here right now:


Speaking of Food & Wine, I was lucky to get to film a few episodes of Travel with Rick while I was there.  Check out my take on the Cheese booth at the festival this year!

In case you missed it, here’s what I’ve been up to on Running at Disney these past weeks:

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

Now on to some long overdue RAD Reads!

Weekly Review
Full recap of the Tower of Terror 10-Miler coming this week, but the short story is…

1. It was HOT


2. I got more awesome runDisney bling


I managed to get a few workouts in when I got back, but my week was definitely lacking in the exercise department.  And let’s not even talk about the paleo challenge…sigh.  Here are all of my workouts from this week and to view a complete list of WODs, visit my dailymile page.

Sunday: 11 miles combined running & walking in WDW
Monday: Rest
Tuesday: CrossFit: Power Cleans, Strict Press, Romanian Dead Lifts & Air Dyne Sprints
Wednesday: Rest
Thursday: Rest
Friday: CrossFit: Back Squats, Pull Ups & Lurong WOD 5
Saturday: Rest

This week I really need to get back into my steady CrossFit routine.  I’ve got Barbells for Boobs coming up soon (make sure to donate!!) and I need to get my strength up to tackle Grace.  I also want to start tackling the things I’m not good at…pull-ups, box jumps, handstands.  I’m never going to get better if I keep avoiding the things I don’t like…maybe I should adopt that theory in all areas of life.

Have a great week and remember to Be RAD!
