My Disney Dopey Challenge training is finally in Taper mode. This weekend only called for a 12 mile run on Sat and cross training on Sun.
The 12 miles was a little challenging, but I wanted it that way. I don’t know if it’s smart, but I figured that since I’m only doing 12, that I should add some hill work. I picked a particularly hilly part of town to run in. They did their job. Add to that the 20 mph winds, and I got a pretty good workout in!
Afterwards I got my reward – Tacos! I went to a local Texas BBQ joint (slash gas station) and got some BBQ breakfast tacos. I don’t really eat meat at all, so mine had mostly eggs, potatoes, and smokey beans. I also know that flour tortillas aren’t good for you, so I ate their innards with a spoon. (I know I’m mostly defeating the purpose of a cheat meal, sorry).
For my cross training I went to yoga class. The instructor I see never does the same routine twice. He does NOT take it easy on us. This ain’t yo mama’s soothey-stretchy yoga! I’m feeling it a day after, and that’s a good thing!
Afterwards I took the rug rats and rug dogs for a walk. Before hand though, the girl tried to figure out a magnifying glass. She pretty much nailed it…
I can’t believe that tomorrow’s run will be the last one of the year (2013). We’re so close to getting Dopey. Just gotta stay focused a little while longer!
Questions: Do you have any good restaurants/gas stations? (we have several in Texas). What kind of yoga do you do – does it have you shaking and sweating and questioning why? Any good weekend workouts?
