Last night I completed my second half marathon ever...and my second half marathon at Disney World. This race presented several challenges..it was a night race...it didn't even start until 10:00pm!!! I was tired before it started because we did the Halloween 5K at Disney that morning and Addie didn't take a nap all day. You know what it means when the munchkin doesn't nap...mommy doesn't nap either. Oh well...adrenaline got me through :) The second problem was between PA school and moving, I haven't trained for this race. I did 6 miles a few weeks and that was the longest run in a few months before running 13.1.
The first 4 miles felt great...then I think I left my hamstring in Animal Kingdom. I ended up walking quite a bit but was keeping under the Disney pace so I wasn't worried about getting swept up. I knew I wasn't going to make my goal time so I stopped and got pictures with all the characters :)
Definitaly need to step up the training to get ready for Goofy...so while I sit here with ice on my hamstring, waiting for Ty to come home and help me stretch...I've planned my november training schedule. It is going to be tough to find the time for the runs with three tests a week, but luckily the weather is starting to cool off (by Florida standards...other people still consider 80 warm) so I'll be able to run after school and then study instead of having to wait until it is dark. Also going to try to do Jillian Michaels 30 day shred everyday before school. We'll see if I am walking by the end of this week. I hope so :)
Here are some pictures from the races yesterday:
