Dopey Traning Week 12 Recap

Happy Friday once again! Theoretically, I should be in Walt Disney World today, exploring the world of Pandora and enjoying the Food & Wine festival. Sadly, Hurricane Irma threw off our plans and I'm stuck at home. Whomp whomp. 

How did week 12 of Dopey Challenge training go? Let's take a look!

Fitness Friday

Currently Training For:
  • Dopey Challenge 2018 - Walt Disney World
  • Rock n Roll New Orleans Half Marathon 2018 - New Orleans, LA

Sunday -
Rest Day
Monday - Squats/Lunges/PT
Tuesday - 2 mile run
Wednesday - Rest Day
Thursday - Squats/Lunges/PT with Cross Training
Friday - Unplanned Rest Day (to hopefully help the leg chill out)

On Saturday morning, I woke up early due to a full day of plans and headed out the door for a 6 mile run. I attempted to KT tape my hamstring and although I did a wonky job, I feel like it did help a bit!

Six Mile Run

This was a 6 mile run and the weather felt fantastic! I am so excited to have a reprieve from these 100+ degree temps! The run went ok and my hamstring didn't start to feel tight until about mile 5. I think a better application of KT Tape next time (now that I know what I'm doing) will help tremendously.

After staying cooped up in the house on Monday, we decided to go for a quick 2 mile run on Tuesday night before dinner. I couldn't stand the Hurricane Irma talk anymore and needed to just get out!

Brayden Paul

After we returned home from our run, I found out that our cruise had officially been cancelled. Again, cue the whomp whomp. I am super thankful to Disney for keeping our safety a #1 priority and I do feel for those poor people on the islands. The pictures I've seen from various places since the storm passed through are heartbreaking.

Brayden Paul

Brayden on the other hand didn't have a worry in the world about his mom and dad's cancelled cruise. He was OUT!

Last night, I decided to combine a total body cross training session with my PT routine. I chose a daily workout from the Tone It Up website and added several rounds of squats and lunges on my own. I know I'm going to be sore today!

I've decided to take Friday off to give my leg a little more time to chill out. Hopefully it'll be ok for Saturday's run. A cool front is passing through this weekend and I'm definitely looking forward to it!

Hurricane Irma

Last but not least, here's a little stupid humor for you on this Friday! I know it's not a funny situation, but having been through multiple hurricanes in the past, I know a little humor does the mind some good. :)

Have a great weekend! Praying for everyone in Irma's path - stay safe, y'all!!


  1. I'm so sorry to hear that your trip was canceled, Karen. Irma is interrupting so many lives and has already left so much destruction. Hopefully you'll be able to find some joy from being at home now with that little cutie of yours.

    1. Thanks, Kathryn. I feel so bad for everyone who was in Irma's path. So sad.

  2. Enjoy your cooler run tomorrow - I'm so excited about our predicted 62 degrees for our run that I'm giddy!

  3. We had a cool front for my run on Tuesday. It was glorious. It was a hint of Fall, and I can't wait.

  4. This Irma stuff is very scary. I hope you can reschedule your time at Disney and your cruise. I hope everyone stays safe.

    1. It is so scary. I'm really glad I wasn't stuck out at sea on a boat during the storm and Disney Cruise Line made the right decision to keep us all safe! Thank you! :)
