Week In Review: Nov 26 - Dec 2 & Disney Costume Preview #1

Last week not only did I get some time on the bike but also spent some time in the pool.  This was more cross training and to see how bad my return to triathlons are going to be.  The bike was OK as it was just a recovery spin from my "hard" 5 mile run the day before.

Swim: 1000 yards / 20 minutes
Bike: 8.87 miles / 30 minutes
Run: 34.3 miles / 4 hours, 45 minutes

I'm still in running mode in preparation for the Walt Disney World 5k, Half, Marathon weekend.  So working in swim and bike will be a little bit of a challenge.  Heck, getting a run in will also be a challenge as we will be spending 10 days on the road around Christmas.

Joe VI and I met for a 12 mile run on Sunday and it will probably be the last time he allows me to plan a route.

Elevation gain of over 1,200 feet, most of which is in the first 9 miles.  It was the first double digit run since our 50k 3 weeks ago.

Disney Costume Preview #1
I am not normally a costume guy for races.  The most I ever got dressed up was for the Krispy Kreme Challenge in 2011:

So for my first race in 2013, Joe VI put together an idea for a costume for the marathon.  So over the course of the next month, I'll be previewing items.  Item number one:

Red Calf Sleeves

Item number two has been ordered and hopefully will be here soon so I have something to put next week.  There is some custom work to be done though, so it might take a little time.

I would make this entire "preview" a contest to see who can guess what we will be going as but:

  1. I don't have anything to give away.
  2. All my readers already know what we are going as.


  1. And item 2 is customized with the answer...

  2. True... and it's going to be so tricky to block that out.
