So, I have been on my quest to transform from a pumpkin to a pretty princess for two weeks now! To acheive this goal, I am doing Turbo Fire workouts at least five days a week, and following the weight watchers diet.
Yesterday I did my first Marathon walking practice. I walked on the sidewalks around my neighborhood. I timed myself and used a pediometer. My first time was:
9 minutes to walk .65 miles, doing the math, I would have walked 1.15 miles if I did all 16 minutes, but it was really cold outside.
This makes me feel better about the pacing requirement. Disney requires all participants to maintain a pace of 16 minutes per mile or better.
The worst part of my week is these awful shin splints! I felt fine after all the Turbo Fire workouts, but the walk around the neightborhood is what did it. I have been doing some research on shin splits, and it seams I may need new shoes. The shoes I wore for my walk were my year old and well worn Reebok Easytones. I read they running shoes need to be replaced around every 400 miles, and that means mine are way overdue. I may be looking into getting new running shoes very soon.
I am feeling really optimistic about my progress and my ablility to go from a pumpkin to a princess.
A dream is a wish your heart makes......
