Dopey Training -Week 14

It's been one of those weeks where I've been wondering where the time goes!  I can't believe it's Tuesday night and I haven't posted my weekly update for last week yet.  I guess it's better late than never.

This week went much better.  I was able to get my training back on track.  It's amazing what being back in your routine will do!  It works wonders.

Monday: 5.1 miles

Tuesday: 6.1 miles

Wednesday: 10.8 miles

Thursday: 17 miles

Friday -5 miles

Saturday -9 miles

Sunday -3 miles

Weekly Total: 56 Miles

The good news is that this week's 17 miler went so much better than the one 2 weeks ago.  It's amazing how running on my "home course" with my familiar landmarks and mile markers makes such a huge difference.

This week I have the challenge of making sure I'm tapering for the Wine and Dine Challenge while continuing my Dopey training.  Ultimately, I've decided to treat the half marathon as a training run.  I think with all the Dopey mileage, I won't be able to run it for a good time.  Disney races are all about the experience anyway!

Rochester Half Marathon -Race Recap

This past weekend, I participated in the Rochester Half Marathon.  This is Fleet Feet's premiere event of the season and it encompasses the 5K and Kids Marathon on Saturday and the Half and Full Marathons on Sunday.  It is also the final leg in the four seasons challenge...thank god that's done!

We left a little late on Saturday but were able to get to packet pickup with about half an hour to spare.  I wish it ran a little later than 4:00PM for those out of town.  I picked up my bib and my race shirt and we headed to our hotel for the night.  I did chuckle at this sign outside of the expo:

The taper crazy is real, folks!
Before I knew it, race time was here! The race starts at Maplewood Park on the north side of Rochester and finishes at Frontier Field.  Parking is at the finish line and there are shuttles to the start.  The school bus shuttles were well-run and plentiful.
I arrived at the start line with about an hour to go before race start.  There were a ton of selfie statio…
