Hi team!

Robbie - We had a rainy weekend too. I think it was the remnants from a hurricane or a storm that was making it's way north. You can walk around all of AKL. A few years ago, they use to give tours of Boma and Jiko where you could talk to the chefs. That usually takes an hour or so. I'm not sure if they do that anymore but it was a lot of fun!

WTG! On your 24 miler! How many miles are you planning for your next LR? Your whole wheat pizza sounds yummy!

Kipp - I'm trying to find some new lenses for my sunglasses too. The ones I have now are a touch too dark for overcast days.

I usually cut back on the carbs Monday to Wednesday and then I slowly start adding them back into my diet Thurs-Sat. I find that I need to do a bit of carb loading for long runs otherwise I feel like I don't have enough energy. Like Robbie, I try to stick to whole wheat pastas and bread or brown rice. I also try to eliminate foods with added sugars or I'll save them for my cheat day (usually the same day as my LR).

Kim -

Rick - Glad to hear you're feeling better! What kind of miles are you planning this weekend? Will check out your RR shortly

Lynn - I like the closeness of the parks too and it feels like the rides inside the parks are closer together ... I think it was just the CMs and then walking back to the hotel at night where I was missing the magic. If I go again, I'd try to stay at the Disney hotels. Safe travels! Can't wait to hear about your cruise

Elizabeth - Hope your 6 miler went well! Yikes on the grocery bill but maybe your nephew can take the girls out on the weekend so you and DH can have an date night? Yes, the film festival is definitely a lot of fun! I never went before because the tickets were pricey. If you want to go to a gala (the one the celebrities attend), you have to reserve those tickets months ahead of time and they cost about $40 (I think). I'm getting my tickets from friends who work in film. The catch is that they can't get tickets until a day or two before the film so there are some I haven't been able to see.

AFM - I went to the gym for the first time since I got back from vacation. It wasn't too bad There was a new exercise challenge posted that was half weight exercises and half cardio. The cardio portion includes 3,000 strides on the elliptical trainer and a 2 mile run. I'm trying to figure out how fast to do the run but still be able to do the elliptical and then the weights. The whole thing feels like it's going to be at least 30 minutes ... then of course the prize is a 30 minute training session so I'm not sure it's necessarily "worth it".

I'm going to see a documentary after work called 'More than Honey' after work. It's about bees

I also posted a recipe for granola - Tropical Protein Loaded Granola. Check it out if you have a chance.

Have a great day everyone!

Thanks. Now I am dealing with either a slight cold or allergies. Hope it blows over by Sunday. I have my 20-miler then. I think I will put in another 30 miles this week. And then it's taper time!

Hi team, another pop resort question. If I have a refillable mug can I use it at counter service other than pop?

I'm taking 2 weeks off to try to heal.

Officially no. But is anyone going to stop you? No. I've seen people fill up all kinds of containers at the food courts. The only "drawback" is that you'll have to bring the mug around with you to the parks.

Lol! Never heard anyone call us 'elite' before. We are just regular folk here, and you are welcome to be a part of our team.

We have several team members doing Goofy/Dopey in 2013 (some of us have done it more than once). This will be my first Dopey.

Happy Friday team! Hope everyone is doing well! I've been busy with work since I got back home and then I've been going to TIFF screenings at night. It's a little bit exhausting. I'll be around more next week.

"WISH" me luck because I have been in bed sick since Wednesday. I went out for a short walk/run yesterday morning which felt good (and took a nap right afterwards). Due to being sick, can't say I have been eating much. So hopefully today and tomorrow I can get some carbs in, stretch, and be able to toe the line on Sunday at 7am. Definitely going to be taking it slow on Sunday....

Good luck Rick and Kimberley!

BTW, I think I am going to race tomorrow, the ADL Golden Mile. As the name implies, it is only a single mile...so don't expect a very long race report!

Hope everyone has a great weekend!


Robbie

Thanks!

Usually I am the gadget nut and would have ordered it. I love the new iPhone but I think I am going to control myself and wait a bit. I have the iPhone 4S and love it so I don't feel compelled to buy the 5 right away. Besides, the online sales were sold out within the first HOUR! LOL

Maybe I will get it as a reward to myself for completing Dopey. Of course, by then all the hype will be beginning for the next iPad.... LOL
