Hi, I'm new to the running threads, but not to the Disboards. I am doing my first 5K at Disney in September. It's part of my goal to lose weight and get in better shape. Looking forward to being part of this group. I'm a Florida resident and annual passholder and have been to Disney more times than I can count.

Ran 3 pain-free, albeit slow, miles today--my first in over two months. Working my way back slowly from my hip/groin issues. Plan to take April slowly--just building up with nice and easy miles.

Maura - Does that mean you're not going to Boston? I'm guessing it would be difficult to do 26 if you're just getting back...

Maryanne - Welcome! I did my first 5K at Disney, back in 2006. We had to drive a little farther than you, but it was worth it. Word of warning: it's addicting!

Heather - Welcome!

Amanda - How's the knee?

I ran the NC Half last weekend at the Charlotte Motor Speedway. I suppose ran is stretching it... I completed the half with my 21 year old daughter (who had completed exactly ONE 3 mile training run in preparation), a friend who ran MCM with me last fall and has been out with a stress fracture since (and had run exactly NO miles in training), and a random woman who was running her first half marathon (and had run up to SEVEN miles in training.) I set a new PR - for the slowest time I've ever taken! But I had a blast. I hadn't seen the friend from MCM in months, so we got to catch up, and my daughter and the other woman dropped off about mile 8 or 9 and walked in together - we had them in sight until the last half mile so I never felt like we abandoned them completely. It was a good feeling to help all of them achieve their goals, and I needed a break from pushing hard through my last couple of races. I'd never been to the track, so I enjoyed seeing all the different tracks that encompass the complex. And the medal is AWESOME!

And in case anyone is keeping track, I said before MCM last year that it would be my LAST marathon. Since then, I've run 26.2 with Donna. I just registered for Richmond in November.

Jackie Glad you enjoyed your race. I didn't sign up for Boston (although I did have qualifying times) because back during signup I was still recovering from my neck issue. I wasn't sure that I would be able to run again. So good call on my part. I hope to qualify again one day.

Thanks Maura! Just thought of two questions:
  • Suggestions for stretches to do after walking
  • Interval timers - is there an app that would work with my Nike+ app?

Maryanne I don't have any answers for the Nike+ question. As for stretches for post-walking, I defer to the walkers of the board. But if you feel any tightness when you stop walking, say in the hamstrings, quads, calves, then I would stretch those out. If you are running, then I would add in the IT band for sure.

Hers is a site that I have bookmarked when I want to learn more about muscles or how to stretch or strengthen them. It's pretty detailed (by muscle group or type), but I have found it useful.

http://www.exrx.net/Lists/Directory.html

Also, Runner's World is a good site for info. I do yoga, and they have posted info on yoga for runners. Here's one link:

http://www.runnersworld.com/article/...3300-0,00.html

Welcome Maryanne. The site Maura just posted on stretching looks great. I stretch a lot after running and even bought a DVD for extra stretching.

Maura You have had quite a time since the Boston. I know you did great at the Chip and Dale, as I hold that over my son's head...almost beat by a 50+..keeps him working hard. Hope you are able to work out your injuries.

Jackie You were down in my neck of the woods...I forgot about that race. I should have come over a cheered you on. Glad you had fun.

AFM I'm lovin' my runnin'. I just go out (about twice a week) and run 6-9 miles and the weather has been beautiful (although the pollen is a little thick). I'm doing speed work once a week on a TM too. Plus my yoga, pilates or kettlebell DVD once a week. I hope to do a 10K next weekend and use that time if I need something fast for corral placement. Then in May I hope to run the Castaway Cay 5K. That would give me a race each month this year so I'm, thinking I should do something each month this year.

So excited! I did my first 5K walk/run today and I wasn't last! I even passed a few people!

I've NEVER done anything like this before. I was a fat kid, fat teen, fat adult - well, I still am a fat adult LOL - but I am trying to change that. I am signed up for the 5K at Disney in September. I've been worried about the mpm requirement. But, today I proved I could do it! And, I have almost 6 months to get faster!

Just back from vacation so I haven't checked in recently!
Thanks for the concern and suggestions for my knee. It seems totally better. I did 13.1 miles last weekend (training run for next weekend's half marathon) and felt fine. No lingering pain this week. I do think I need to cross-train more. I really believe my quads are weak and that's why I get calf muscle strain and then knee pain. My friend wants me to try spinning class with her so I might do that.
I'm taking today off because I have a terrible cold with lots of congestion. Hoping a rest day helps!

Amanda

Hi everyone! I just wanted to introduce myself. After years of leading a very inactive life and being very overweight, I have decided to do something about it. To keep me motivated in my new healthy lifestyle, I've set my sights on the 2013 Princess Half. Reading all of your stories, bios, and posts is so inspirational. Thanks a bunch!

Joan Glad you are in a happy place with your running. May the (running) force be with you.

mahipp Awesome! COngrats on your achievement. I hope you celebrated.

Amanda Cycling is a great way to work on quads. Spinning is a good workout. If you decide to pursue, find yourself a pair of spin shoes. Don't have to be expensive, but it makes a big difference to be clipped in and using all of your leg power..

Happy Mom2 Welcome to the bunch. Congrats on taking the first steps--literally and figuratively! It takes a lot of strength to say your goal out loud. Good for you.

I am easing my way back in and so ran 4 miles this morning before coming back to watch Tom Boonen ride away from the field at Paris-Roubaix. He is having a great year--and he is so easy on the eyes to watch!

Happy Easter,all.

Maura
