No, not the MLK speech (although that is wicked). I’m referring to the next 2 years and how they are going to change the course of my life. As any runDisney fanatic is aware, a NEW race has been announced. This November in Disneyland The Avengers are being called to assemble for a 5k and half marathon.
*insert supreme nerdy giggle here*
Now, I will not be attempting to run in the inaugural race, although how freaking amazing would that be?? No, I have decide that, funding permitted, I will be going for my Coast To Coast medal in the year 2016.
February=Princess Half Weekend 5k, 10k, and half
November=Avengers #SmashTheHalf Weekenf 5k and half
For those keeping a tally, that comes out to 38.6 magical miles
I think I damaged my brain, the idea of this outrageous but I am so excited to begin this journey. After I finish the Tower of Terror 10 miler that is.
one thing at a time Jenna…
Currently, I am still working on maintaining my routine and keeping my mile time between 14 and 15 minutes. Last Friday I did my first 5k since the summer and I felt incredible. I decided to attempt this due to all the posts I was reading about everyone running in WDW for the Princess Weekend. I was able to maintain my breathing throughout and stayed at a good pace of just under 15:30 min miles. I would bump up the speed on the treadmill whenever a really good song came on.
I’ve also started doing slight weight lifting. There’s no way I’m going to be running in my Maleficent outfit with flabby arms in October!
Monday: 2 miles
Wednesday: 2 miles (elliptical)
I say 2ish because I really don’t know how far I ran since not only once but twice did I pull the emergency stop cord on the treadmill and I lost all my data. TWICE! Good grief.
Going for another 5k again tomorrow. 👍
