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.
