ToT 10 miler training: 8 weeks to go

week 10

We’re down to two months before the race!  I got to make my FastPass+ reservations this week, so I’ll be riding the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train.  Nothing left for Anna and Elsa, of course, by the time I booked, but I’ll meet them eventually!  With just eight weeks left I’m feeling pretty good right now.

week 10 mon

On Monday I went for my usual morning run and had my best time yet for a half hour run, especially considering I’m usually faster at night!    So definitely no complaints about that.  I was feeling pretty good this week with the running.

For whatever reason, RunKeeper didn’t save my run data from Wednesday.  I did do my half hour run though, and if I remember correctly I was at about an 11:15 min/mile pace.

week 10 fri

And then there was Friday – the day that I was going to do my longest run that I’ve done so far.  I’ve done a couple of 10k’s so I’ve done about 6.2 miles, but hadn’t gone beyond that before.  This week was 7 miles.  I tried to treat it as close to race conditions as possible – I ate pasta about six hours before running, and I went at night.  I purposely kept my pace slower in the beginning so I would make it through all seven miles, which was a very good idea.  And let me tell you – this run felt great.  I did my seven miles and could’ve kept going for 10.  My goal for the 10 miles is to keep around a 12:30 min/mile pace (not counting character stops) so this seems like a really good sign that I’ll be able to do that!

Feeling good this week!
