Training recap week of 12/29 (Disney Half Week 6)

It's hard to believe that at this time last year, I was heading into my final week of Dopey training.  It feels like it was both a lifetime ago and yesterday.  I remember the feeling of running that marathon completely.  I also feel like it was FOR-EVER ago.  How is that possible?

I will say, I am very happy to just be running the half this Saturday.  I loved experiencing Dopey, but I also loved not having the stress of training for it over Christmas.

This past week was not a great week.  After being home for Christmas, I came back and got a horrible cold.  I know exactly who gave it to me - my youngest niece (love the girl but she is like a germ dispenser).  I got my runs in, but cut back on the mileage in order to allow myself to recover.  By Saturday, I was 95% back to my regular self!

And since one of my goals in 2015 was to do more cross training (aiming for 4x a week), I am going to be including those workouts in my recaps!
