DIS ('natch) both WDW and DL as well as WDW today. There are a few others I've heard about but haven't checked out yet. Also be sure to look for the live interviews between Jim Hill and Len Testa of WDW today - they are awesome although those are not ongoing podcasts.

Really good week this week (especially if you include the NYC DIS meet!)

On the weight loss side I'm down another 2.8 pounds (making me an even 14 pounds down from my high mark on July 6).

On the training side, I was scheduled on the Galloway plan to do a 6.5 mile run (run-walk-run) this weekend. Normally I would do this on Saturday. However, when I woke up Saturday I had 2 problems. First, I slept a bit later than I expected to which meant I would be getting a late start and I needed to be back at the house to let some workers in. The bigger problem, however, was that I woke up with a stiff back. More than stiff really - I knew from experience it was on the verge of completely giving out on me. So I decided to take it easy and hope it would be better on Sunday. I also started taking ibiprophin for good measure.

I woke up Sunday at 5AM and my back felt better but still a bit stiff. I took a couple more ibiprophin and went back to bed. I rose again at 6 and felt pretty good so I decided to go for it. I was extra careful to warm up and stretch well, and I also took it real easy on the run. As a result my time was not so great - although I think my time was still better than 2 weeks ago when I ran 6 miles. My per-mile average was about 15.5 minutes - again not great at all but like I said I was taking it easy. The main thing is I managed to finish the 6.5 miles and my back feels fine.

You said the 1/2 training is 34 weeks? On his site it says 19? Do you know the difference? I'm starting his conditioning tomorrow and then hope to move on the 1/2 training to do the W&D 1/2 in 2013.

Maybe I should buy his book on the 1/2?

By "this site" do you mean my schedule I posted here? I had been training for a while when I started the Galloway plan. Basically what I did was I counted how many weeks I had left until the marathon and I jumped into the training plan there. The whole schedule is 34 weeks.

He shows 19 weeks, which doesn't seem like much!

Hi, I asked and apparently yes, some if it is on "natural surfaces"

This is for "runners and walkers". Honestly I could have used this but I chose the beginners schedule which is 34 weeks.

I'm going to buy his book. 34 weeks sounds more my speed that 19!

A bit of a setback this week.

As I mentioned in my last post I hurt my back last week. It's still bothering me and I haven't run again all week. I'm going to the chiro today - I hope that helps as I am driving my daughter to college this weekend (a six hour drive). Luckily I was not scheduled for a long run but rather a time trial this weekend which is something I can make up. I just need to get my back in shape again!

On the weight side, my lack of running has lead to a 2 pound gain. Not great but I'm not to worried about it.

Good week.

On the weight loss side I lost the weight that I gained last week.

On the training side, I did a 7 mile run (OK, run/walk) today. My back is almost 100% better but I still took it easy. So my pace wasn't great, pretty much spot on a 15 minute mile pace. But again, I was taking it easy.

As I mentioned in my last post I skipped the time trial. I went to my chiropractor on Friday and mentioned that and he said that he thought the TT was more important than the long run (I should mention he runs marathons). He pretty much had me convinced I should definitely do the TT - even if it meant skipping the long run. So, I re-read the chapter in the Galloway book about time trials, and realized that yes, my chiropractor was right. On the other hand it looks like Galloway actually recommends more TTs than are actually in the schedule - so I plan to do one on Monday and then one at least every 2 weeks.

Also I didn't get a chance to do a proper cool-down stretch after running and I'm really feeling the pain now. I'll have to remember to not skip that.

I did my first time trial today. I was expecting somewhere between 11 and 12 minutes - I came in at 11:45. This puts my current pace at 14 minutes per mile - which honestly was about where I was at notwithstanding the back issues. Still, even though I have been saying I don't want to set myself an ultimate time goal for the half marathon (beyond avoiding being someone they have to "sweep up"), I am going back a bit on that. I would like to finish in 3 hours. That would require a pace of about 13.5 minutes for a mile. I think that's do-able.
