1. Rock the Inaugural Pixie Dust Challenge
This was an A++++. I rocked both races (10k recap and half recap) and came away with Disney PRs for both races. The 10k was a PR of 1:21:57 and about 3 minutes off of my Star Wars 10k time and my half time was 2:35:53 which was about 7 minutes faster than my Avengers half time. I was able to take 15 photo stops during the 10k and 12 during the half. Also for the half, my last few miles were under 10 min mile pace which is great since they were fatigued for sure.
2. Add weights to my core training
I give myself a C- on this. Before Pixie Dust and after, I went lax on the core work a bit as part of the taper and also rest time. I will be rolling this one over to June for sure.
3. Be able to do 3 real push-ups
I am going to give myself a B+ on this one. I did 3 push-ups and got about 75% down but I know my form is all wonky. I will want to keep working on this
1. Add weights to my core training
I think this will definitely help up with building strength. I need to get on this and will make it the workout priority of the month
2. Take 10 days off from running
Yes! I will be in Walt Disney World with the family from June 5th-15th and my plan is to not run the entire time. I know I will miss it but with all of the walking we will be doing along with the heat and humidity, this will be a good goal.
3. Do Piyo while on vacation
I will be in WDW June 5th-15th but it won't be a complete rest time. I plan on doing Piyo every morning as well as 5-10 min of core work while everyone is getting ready. It will be interesting with the 3 kiddos around but they also love to work out too! I am hoping it will help my strength and flexibility so when i start running again after the vacation, I won't have lost much time.
I will be make it a goal to do speedwork at least once a week-whether it is fartleks, repeats or hill repeats, I will get it in once a week. My training for Dumbo and my crazy Fall doesn't begin until end of June so I am hoping adding in speedwork will work wonders.
What are your goals for June?
