However, my husband said since I was doing 13, I should just go ahead and do the 0.1 more and make it the neighborhood half marathon so I did AND he MADE me a MEDAL. Can you believe it? He's always so supportive with water stops and such but this was just the best.
That is so sweet and super supportive! He is a great DH!

2 questions...

So I ran my first 1/2 in a while and was close to my goal, finishing at 2:35. a 22 mph headwind and hills at each of the last 3 miles slowed me down, but I made it. Here is the question: is 2:35 for a 1/2 enough to get me in at 4:45 for the full? Or do I need to find a 10K to get a better time? (my 10K time today was 1:10:20.7 (broken out on the official results page, but not the certificate) but not sure if that is considered official and would count)

I also discovered that the sweet fuels (had tried gel/gu/etc and stopped them) and ended up thinking sport beans would be all good, but I have found the sweet things during the race just make me ill starting around mile 10. And I only eat one or two at a time and drink water only. Thoughts on a non-sweet fuel?

Thanks!!!

I can't answer on the time question, but I take Cliff Bars (peanut butter crunch is my choice) for fuel. I experimented with several things including gu/chomps/stingers etc and found that I really liked the Cliff bars in combination with the sweeter stuff. I cut the bars up into small cubes and put them in a ziploc and eat those. I really like them, but they definitely require water to wash them down.

I was thinking about bringing a Payday with me and cutting it into pieces!

A question for those who have run a full. Do you only depend on the water stops and time your gels, Clif bars, etc for the stops or do you wear a hydration belt so you can wash down your gel when you feel like it?

Not sure if it helps but, I submitted a 1/2 time of 2:16. Disney changed my expected finish to 4:40.

Great idea, but I do not think they are sold up here in Canada Maybe I will have my parents bring up some in a few weeks if I have not found a better solution. If you try it let me know how it goes!

I am guessing that means no, and will need to find a 10K or another 1/2 before January... Thanks from another Katie!

I wore out my pair of Newton Distances and while I loved them, I decided that I needed a bit more cushion for a Full. I ran several Halfs with the Newtons and they were great. Now I am running in Saucony Kinvara 3s and Brooks PureFlows. I am planning on running the Chicago Marathon in the PureFlows because they have more cushioning but still have only a 4mm heel drop. The Kinvara 3s are also 4mm heel drop shoes (I have run several Halfs with these as well) but they have a bit less cushioning than the PureFlows.

Just my experience. Everyone's feet are so different. You really have to try things out to see what feels the best for you. I know several runners who wear one type of shoe for Fulls and a different type for Halfs just because of the extra distance and time 'under foot'.

Hoping to get some help

Hello All
I have been reading this board for over a year and finally decided to register. I need some advice. I am all signed up for Goofy. I did it last year and have decided one more year and it will be out of my system.. I started a new job and I am on my feet all day working. I used to work at a desk job. I am having a hard time getting all my mileage in on days I work due to my legs being too tired. I did take my pedometer to work and it recorded I was doing five- 6 miles a day at work. Any one have any experience with training while working a physical job? Or advice on how to get more miles in after work?
Thanks.
Amanda

I run in Vibram FiveFingers SeeYas.

They are just about as minimalist as Vibram makes... nearly no cushion at all... almost no structure to the upper. I liken them to socks with rubber soles.

I have not run a full... but have completed my first half marathon a few weeks ago. That was my long run, but I've had now about 7 or 8 runs of at least 10 miles. My feet do get sore on runs that long, but it generally takes only a day or so to feel fully better.

I neer could run until I found out about minimalist shoes and a "barefoot" style of running (fore- to mid-foot strike instead of heel striking). I have heel spurs in both feet and have had several bouts of plantar fasciitis in the past 4 or 5 years.

I took up running in January and am going to cross 600 miles run this year next week... all without any significant injury and no PF.

Ted

Your husband rocks! Can you have him talk to mine?

That is pretty awesome! I have not yet tried the FiveFingers shoes because of the lack of cushion. I have a pair of Altra Running Instincts shoes as well as my Kinvaras and PureFlows. They are a minimalist zero-drop shoe. I enjoy running in them but I have not tried running more than 6-7 miles in them because of the lack of cushioing.

At 245lbs, I know that cushion is something my feet need just because of the stresses that the weight puts on my feet. I am a mid-foot striker and I have found that, for me, I like the 4mm heel drop shoes with some cushioning. 4mm heel to toe variance is considered minimalist, and it does take time for someone who has been running with a more substantial ratio (like 10mm or more) to transition to the lower heel to toe ratios (mostly because of the added work that the calves and arches do when running minimalist/barefoot).

Maybe when I have lost some more weight, I will take my Instincts further and see how they work out.

I alternate between my New Balance Minimus and my Asics Kayanos. Love them both.

I rarely carry fluids with me. I either have a gel when I want it and get water at the next stop, or I take it at a water stop. My timing isn't so precise that a few minutes early or late in order to get it in at a water stop makes any difference.
