3 days of work left y'all! I will be seeing my chiropractor today, and I have one more PT session tomorrow. In between that, and even at Disney, I'll be doing PT exercises to try to get as much time on the course before I have to walk the rest. I don't know when that will be. I've had two strong 4-mile runs, and Saturday I did 3.5. I have noticed I'm running faster, so instead of trying to slow down and increasing the time spent on my knee, I think I'll let myself run how I want, if given the chance. I don't know how crowded it will be, but if I have room, I'll run based on how I feel, and I'll stick to my 1/1 intervals. When the time comes and I need to walk, then OK. I just hope I'm a good way in to DCA before I have to do that. Who knows, if there are characters in DCA, maybe I'll stop for pictures.
It's been a busy couple of weeks, and I'm still not done yet. I test drove the Mazda CX-5 on Saturday, and now I have a lot to think about. The CX-5 and Honda CRV are VERY similar. There's not much the separates them, so it'll come down to how I feel driving them and I what I want down the road. I'm hesitant to get the CX-5 because of the quirk my Mazda 3 has picked up. I don't want to be dealing with the same thing in 6 or 7 years. Since I have Disneyland this weekend, I have time to think, but I want to test drive the CRV again, when I get back.
I got to Pure Barre yesterday, and the teacher tortured our PB ledge/the seat. I wasn't going to go to Pure Barre this past week to prep for Tink, but since I'm trying to get as much strength work done, I went. I really like the classes, and I feel accomplished when I survive another class. Yes, that's survive. It's hard, but worth it.
The carb loading started this weekend too. I made my "healthy comfort food" and since I forgot to buy parmesan cheese, no parmesan topping. Just the pasta, chicken, and veggies - carrots, red bell peppers, and tomatoes. I have a frozen lasagna for this week too. I'm one who ups my carbs the whole week leading to the race, not just the night before. I know there's a California Pizza Kitchen near my hotel, so guess what I'm getting Friday night. There's a mini-fridge in my room, so that makes it easy. This is one of the things I love about Disneyland. I can walk to outside restaurants and not be stuck on Disney property.
