Week 4: Pissy About Princess

This will be the shortest week recap ever. Why? Because I sucked. I'd say The Coach either had it really easy or really hard. Meniere's Disease became a problem and I never once made it to swim class. Bummer. Running happened one time - a couple hours ago. 

This is what it looks like when I sit on a bench and ponder.
I had visions of at least 10 miles. I thought if I'm doing 10 why not just push a bit more and go for 12. But then if you're going to do 12 then just do the half marathon. But why stop there? Go for 14! And if you can do 14 you can surely do 15.

Ha! I did 5 miles. Five. Lame balls, Batman.  I am pretty disappointed. But sometimes vertigo dictates what I can safely do. Those 5 miles were freezing. I actually went out in two long-sleeve shirts and never regretted it. It did feel wonderful to be back out there again, I just hated having to come to terms with the fact that I couldn't safely keep running farther away from home. 

Next week will be a fresh start. I want to get back into the swing of things, and if I have to run 5 miles close to home I'm close (just in case) then so be it!

And ugh. Are giraffy and I the ONLY people that didn't do Princess this year? Seeing it everywhere has kind of pissed me off, but not really. I just wish I was there.  So... on that note, I'm going to go register for the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror 10 miler right now! See you in September, runDisney!


  1. I didn't do Princess, either...and I didn't get out running at all this weekend. We took the Kid and went tubing which was a BLAST. I like to think walking up the hills (even though they had a little moving walkway) was workout enough! :)

    Also...are you a Hunger Games fan!?

  2. I didn't do princess...and my legs looked exactly like yours in that picture this afternoon. I made it for 10...and got soaked for the last 4.

  3. Taryn - I don't even know what Hunger Games is!!

  4. AHHH!!!!!

    Three books...The Hunger Games, Catching Fire, and Mockingjay. The movie for the first one comes out March 23. An absolute MUST SEE. :D (and a must read, too!)

  5. I am right there with ya, sista! Running has been sucky lately. Hopefully it will blow over soon!

  6. I feel like right now it can't get worse ... so I can look forward to it only getting better ... right?!?

  7. i guess thats how out of the interwebs loop i am...i had no clue Disney Princess Half was this past weekend!

    I cant believe it's been a year now!
