Walt Disney World Training: Week 10

Here we are in double digit training weeks, which is wild to me.  I feel like it was just a few hours ago that I was sitting on this couch not able to walk.  And here we are.  Less than a month to go before the big show.

Let’s talk about this past week, shall we?

Kanga is always super happy to see me post run.

Total miles:  23

Total miles this cycle:  217

Toughest run:  I’m so lucky for the second week in a row I didn’t have a really tough run.  Sunday’s long run was a stitch challenging in the end. I was tired, my feet are killing me.  But when I finished, I felt like a million bucks.  I love long runs like that.

Best run:  My two mid week runs were awesome.  As I said earlier in the week, my poor MB was home sick with the stomach flu.  So I took my runs as an opportunity to get away from the germs as much as possible.  I took the runs nice and easy and spent as much time as possible out in the fresh air.  I found a few new routes that I incorporated into my long run.  I loved being able to get outside, even though it was so so cold.

Knee and hip pain on a scale of 1 (post Motown Philly) to 5 (the day before the Richmond marathon): 3  My hip has been behaving but my knee felt like it was feeling when I was in physical therapy which was weird.  Today I’m going to be rolling and icing to make sure it’s all together before i start training this week.  Also randomly, my big toe joint is KILLING today.  I took my anti inflam and will throw some ice on that bad boy as well.  Getting old is so stupid.

I think that about wraps it up for me this week!  It was my final cutback week before peak week.  Our 20 mile run is now less than a week away.  I already bought post long run oreos, so I think I’m going to be set.

How was your week?
