Half Marathon Training – Disney Wine and Dine

Half marathon training has started.  Disney Wine and Dine is my next half marathon race.  Yes, it has been a while since I’ve gone for a run.  To be exact, April 14th was the last time I ran before taking a 3-month break.  Why you may ask?  Too many reasons to list, but mostly, it’s just miserably hot in the summer in Florida.  And, yes, I could have run on the treadmill, but seriously, I can’t.  I admire runners who solely train on treadmills.  I, my friends, am not one of those runners.  So instead, I had a lot of fun with my Pretty Little Liars and Gossip Girl Netflix marathons.  Don’t judge. ;)

Right after completing Iron Girl in Clearwater, I immediately signed up for the Disney Wine and Dine half marathon in November.  You may ask, why would I sign up so early.  Last year I waited too long.  I was unsure about signing up for it.  First, this will be the most expensive race entry fee to date.  Second, I’ll have to book a hotel, because seriously, I won’t be able to drive back to Plant City that early in the morning.  Oh, did I tell you the race starts at 10:00 pm?  Yep, so that means, I won’t be finishing till about 12:30/1 am.  And thirdly, it is one of the fastest selling races.  Last year, I literally went to sleep thinking about the race when it was 75% sold out.  I woke up the next morning and it was completely sold out.  I promised myself I wouldn’t let that happen again.  And thankfully, my husband fully supported my decision.  :)

So, here I am, starting to run again.  And guess what?  I’m more in love with running than ever.  My heart rate and my speed are not where they were four months ago, but that is to be expected after taking a break.  I’ve decided to follow the Lululemon SeaWheeze 10 week training plan with some modifications.  Basically, I’ll be running three times a week and if times allows, I’ll throw in a spin/yoga/cross training day for variety.  Or at least that’s the plan.

 

Have you run a Disney race yet?

Have you seen the SeaWheeze app?

Are you training for any race?

Are you a Netflix fan?

Hi! I'm Xiomara. My love for strawberries started at a young age. As a child growing up in Puerto Rico, eating strawberries was a special treat. Fast forward to 2007, we packed our home and moved to Plant City, the winter strawberry capital of the world.
