Disney Princess Training: Week 3&4

OK sooo the past two weeks I have been mia/out of town so I missed my last 2 posts for my training week 3 and week 4! This will have to be the abridged version because I actually missed 3 runs when I was in Puerto Rico. Soo, here goes!

Week 3--> I only got in one regular run and I made up my long run when I got back from PR.  The regular 35 min run was pretty good, maintained a 10-11 min pace but that was on the treadmill (which is nothing like running outside but at least I am staying active).  The make-up long run was 5 miles and supposed to be done on the 10th but I ended up doing it on the 17th.  It was pretty great run, and I got the about an 11:48 min mile average pace so I was ecstatic about that!!!!   AND that was after a week in PR, not exercising, and eating/indulging myself in all the delish food items that I never normally eat hahah! I was so so cold after this run because I started around 430pm and by the time I finished it was dark and COLD (my hands were numb frm mile 4.5 on!!! Ultimately, I really enjoyed my long run and felt amazing afterwards.  My only issue was that I didn't properly fuel for this run.  I wasnt prepared with any gu's or chomps so afterwards I just had a gatorade and that clearly was not enough! I felt so weak all evening and had no energy even eating dinner was difficult!

Week 4--> I missed 2 of the regular runs for this week while I was in PR but I did the "long run" for week 4 which was only 3 miles.  I actually did this 'run' with my sister (she is signed up for the 5K the saturday before my half marathon in disney world) so she could get some practice but it ended up being more of a power walk and then when my sister up and peaced out after 20 mins or so, I was so angry so I ran as fast as I could and ended up doing the last mile in about 9 mins so yeah haha it wasn't a great run but I got it done!

Week 5 is ok, I am feeling really sick today (sinuses, head cold) so I didnt run today.  My mom thinks I just need to rest my body a couple days after running so much after a week off so I am going to do my week 5 runs on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday.  I am a little nervous about my long run for this week (it's 6.5 miles) because I'm supposed to do it on saturday but I am going to Blacksburg for the VT-uva game so that clearly will not happen haha!

Still debating doing the long run on Friday before I leave or on Sunday after I get back.. just wait for the week 5 update for find out haha! OK, so friends, please enlighten me-- what do you do when you're on vacation and get off track from your workout/running plan or schedule? Do you just skip what you missed or try to make it all up?
