Week 8, and another recovery week, with two main highlights.
The running was steady rather than spectacular. Once gain I’m seeing the benefit of these ‘easier’ weeks as I generally felt fairly tired this week. My motivation was lifted early on in the week however as rundisney released a picture of the medals on offer at the WDW marathon weekend.
8 medals, 7 on offer with the Dopey challenge; 5K, 10k, half-marathon, marathon, Goofy challenge and Dopey challenge. For info the other two are the kids races and the Castaway challenge (linked with a Disney cruise).
The other highlight was heading off for the weekend with the family to Legoland and the fireworks. I know a lot of people moan about Legoland, and yes it can be expensive, but we’ve been going since the kids were little and always have a good time. We’re fortunate enough to have annual passes which means there’s no pressure to get on all the rides in each visit. We’ve been before simply for a play in the playgrounds and to watch the entertaining pirate show.
For the last couple of years we’ve attended the yearly fireworks and combined it with a stay in the hotel. The fireworks are always impressive and the hotel theming adds to the fun.
