I found the Princess course to be super duper flat. I did find the dip under the water bridge by Contemporary to be steep. Legit steep. But totally doable, and I had trained for that hill. I did not find the clovers bad or the overpass back to epcot bad, where others did find those bad. I guess everyone is different!

My 5 year old did 9 laps (just shy of 2 miles!) last Thursday when I went up and ran with them. My 7 year old did 10 laps and my oldest (9) did 12. When they run with their friends they are just--- running! Being kids! It's fun. So I try to keep that idea when we run too.

We listen to music, we talk, I bribe (hey, if we make it to 2 miles we will get a Popsicle!)

I say take her around the block and see if she likes it. My DD is ONLY running because I told her if she can do a 5K I will take her one year with me to Princess so she can run with me there. She's just like her mommy- will only run for Disney trips. She isn't going this year, but she might be ready for it next year!

My 5 year old only does a mile or so with me because he gets whiney after that, but if yours is expressing an interest, take advantage and pounce now!
You all are putting me to shame Thanks for the ideas though! I'll give it a shot this week as long as the temps cooperate with me. I don't know about whiny boys, but I do know about whiny girls!

He runs everywhere- except when I want him to. Dudes!
It's got to be something in the age (or gender? ) because I feel like mine are constantly whining about something. If they wanted to be outside and I want them inside, they whine but if I suggested they go out, they whine. If I don't take them with me, they whine but if I do take them, they whine...can't win!!!!

My mom and I have a room and package for 4 at POR, but it looks like our 2 friends aren't going to be able to come! SO...I am looking for two ladies who might want to share our room with us Friday-Tuesday, with dining plan and park tickets. Send me a message if you are interested!

I too feel a tad behind since I haven't been on dis much this last week.

I was actually wondering how your running has been going now that we are getting some rain here in WWA. I managed only about 5 miles yesterday..I was sooo wet by the time I was done and it was getting dark I figured I best not push it. A couple days before that it was seriously foggy here (although from what I hear it was actually blue skies all day in Seattle) I went out that afternoon definitely too late and learned that was not the best idea.

As for your question... it is too bad you didn't catch me a couple weeks ago. Now it looks like I have a room. You are going from Friday to Tuesday? That flight about kills me... I have to have a bit of time to recover. Maybe I am just old. Looks like we will be headed down on Wednesday or Thursday.

Since we are more than 45 days out, can't you just modify the number of guests in your room? That way you don't have the extra tix and dining. You may also be able to scale back on the resort if the mod. Is more than the remaining 2 want to pay for.

Have a great training week Princesses!

Has anyone ever submitted a time at bib pick up? I have the chance to do a 10k on Thursday but I'm in the fence. I did my first 6 mile run in 20+ years yesterday and finished at 10:10/mile. I'm sore has heck today. I was hoping to do the 5k and get a PR as my weekly 30 min runs have picked up pace to 8:55/mile. Ugh!!!

If I improve, I always submit my time at packet pick-up. It is so much easier and you always get a response! Why not go for it? You may be sore today, but it is amazing how we can bounce back so quickly after that, tomorrow may be 100% different. If you don't get a better time, there are always plenty of other races to choose from. Just make sure that they have official times. Good Luck!!

My legs are fine, my mind is fine, but I just can't get the lungs on track - I can run for about 2 minutes or so, then I have to stop. It sucks!! I am getting better, but it's taking so LONG!

My main problem is my back. My chest is just too large for any sports bra to do the job, and if I do find one that does the job then I feel like I can't breathe. With all that in motion from running after a few minutes my back feels like its going to snap! I just stick with fast paced walking and am working on increasing my speed little by little.

There is no shame in taking walk breaks during the run...I've never been a smoker but still have the breathing problems from time to time..running coach says it takes time to work on lung capacity..I've been training since May and have seen improvement so keep plugging along! Look at it this way...at least you are getting out there trying vs. sitting on the coach!

For the previous PHM gals...how was your corral placement based on your time reported to run disney? (I.e., if you reported finishing at 2:50 were you in corral D, E or F?)
