  • Treadmill
    • 2 Miles
    • 14:43 MM Pace
  • Elliptical 
    • 3 Miles
    • 16 MM Pace

I intended to run outside, but I just didn't get up - So I took advantage of a quiet house and slept until 8:30 a.m. (completely unheard of in my house) and then went and did my run on the treadmill. Around mile 2, I was running faster than the treadmill belt and I hit the emergency shut off switch by mistake and got flung into the front of the treadmill. 

So, I decided to finish off on the elliptical. 
"I can be beautiful, lovely and fair Silvery voice, long purple hair La la la la, la la la la la La la la la la, la la la la la la But it's only skin deep For, zim zabberim zim I am an ugly old creep The magnificent, marvelous, mad, mad, mad, mad Madam Mim!" . FUN FACT: I was mad madam mim for the 2014 Tower of Terror 10-miler! It was also the weekend we shared with our family that baby #2 was on the way. Did 2 miles on the treadmill, 3 miles on the elliptical today. I was having trouble with the treadmill (kept turning off on me). ☹️ . . . . . #theswordandthestone #madmadammim #disney #disneyig #disneymom #motherrunner #fitmom #werunmiami #flrunner #postpartumrunning #postpartum #magickingdom #marathontraining #wdw #wdwmarathon #wdwmemories #costumerunner #tuturunner #tutu #teamsparkle

Thoughts on the Week
This was a rough week for me, I didn't feel well and my knees were hurting. I'm going to take it easy for a couple of days and do lots of stretching and perhaps some foam rolling so I can stay strong and injury free. 


Looking forward to week 5!
