Dopey Challenge Training

47 days out …Dopey Challenge 2022

As I mentioned in a previous blog, I am training for the Dopey Challenge. It is a Run Disney event that takes place during marathon weekend at Walt Disney World in January It consists of 4 days of races, starting with a 5k on Thursday, 10k on Friday, a half marathon on Saturday and ending with a full marathon on Sunday for a total of 48.6 miles.

My weeks have been altering from higher and lower mileage.

This week prior to Thanksgiving, I completed my first Dopey Simulation, running 4 consecutive days with mileage of 3, 4, 10, and finally 20 miles.  I am happy to report, my body is adjusting well to the rigorous training.

Monday   3 miles + Barbell Class

Tuesday 4 miles

Wednesday miles 10 miles

Thursday 20 miles …body wasn’t ready to play but the mind said DO IT! Marathon training is a Mental Game!

I also been cross training. Barbell Strength+ Surrender Yoga

One more week, until Thanksgiving.  WOW.   Since, I am hosting Thanksgiving, I have begun preparing make-ahead meals and freezing them.  I love cooking.

I also been watching Football. Enjoy watching my home team PATRIOTS.

I am looking forward to a less running week this Thanksgiving.
