I second AnotherPrincess on the foam roller. It changed everything for me. They used them with me in PT and I bought one. I literally travel with it to races and disneyworld hahahaa .

I told her I fell off a stool directly onto my tailbone soooo hard when i was 12-13 and just dealt with the pain :-/

She also had me do a lumbar xray bc of my L5 bulging disk issue that persists and the disk is definitely compressed. We are going to do an mri. In that film she found i have 5 1/2 vertebra down there where typical people have 5!!! What the what??!! Hahahhaa. I'm a special one.

So there you have it folks! Only elliptical and the exercises for now which is A-ok. I will hit the mean streets of LI in a couple weeks.

FANTASTIC news!!!!!!!!!!

I will third it. Love mine. Well, I hate it because it hurts like a beach but it works like a charm and that's what counts.

If anyone has an extra race retreat ticket they aren't using, I'd love to purchase it from you! Just made the decision to run the race today so a little behind the eight ball on this one! THANKS

I PRed on my 3 mile run tonight! 32:34 and feelin' good. I usually fall between 33-34 minutes. And to think... I didn't want to get out and run tonight! Moral of this story: GO OUT AND JUST DO IT ANYWAY!

Also, I decided to do the 10k Turkey Trot that is 2 hours away. One of my best friends is spending Thanksgiving up in Phoenix. Her brother is in town from LA and convinced me to drive up with them the night before so he could run it with me. So I don't have to wake up SUPER early and drive back same day. My GOAL is under an hour and 10 mins... so wish me luck, princesses!

But now he gave me the ok to work out and do some walking right now and then in two weeks I can start a slow, easy run/walk!! I start physical therapy right away as well. I'm going to work hard this time not to do too much too soon and get injured again.

I have been so depressed that I haven't been able to do anything for the last two weeks but today I'm a happy camper! I'd planned to start training at the end of December to walk it and not get swept but now maybe I'll even get to run a little of it!
Excellent news!!!

Could I keep it up for the longer distances? No. But I'm pretty sure the longer distances will eventually catch up.
This makes me feel so much better! I thought there was something wrong with me. I too use to have my pace about the same. Lately though, short runs of 3 miles or so and my pace per mile is much less. I was starting to feel a bit discouraged on my longer runs.

Isn't that awesome how that works? You almost don't go out to run and then you do and BAM! great run!

Good luck on your Turkey Trot!

Hi princesses :rincess wave::! I know I'm late to the sports bra conversation, but I used to be a 34G. I went to a specialty bra store and the lady that fitted me was a runner as well. She sold me the Goddess bra (no underwire) and it honestly changed my running! It's like running in a iron corset - I never bounced and moved. I still wear it, but in a thankfully smaller size. I swear by it. It's tight, but belly breathing is key and breathing gets easier once you start moving!

On a completely unrelated note, does anyone know when they will announce the winner of the Night in the Castle sweepstakes!!! ::fingers crossed:: good luck to all the princesses on here!! And you Must let us know if you won!!

I'm a 34F too. It's so hard to find bras with small bands and big cups. Trust me, these are original equipment--if I had the option, they'd be smaller!

I've had good luck with Moving Comfort Juno and Helena in 34DD (the smaller size has that excellent "cram 'em in" approach. The ultimate, though, for me are these in M-DD: http://www.sierratradingpost.com/mov...colorFamily=02 And they're dirt cheap, which is good, because I air dry all my bras, and I need a few to get through a week of training.

So Disney's little "green" teaser for Friday is making me nuts. I really hope they aren't going to open up more half entries for Tinkerbell. That's a temptation I'm not sure I can handle. I would want to do it soooo bad but that's 3 halves in 3 months for me and logically I know I don't have the physical ability to do it. I just hope it's something else so I don't have to face the temptation.

Seriously. I would be in deep trouble. I had the impression that Anaheim is pretty limited in terms of crowd capacity, so it seems unlikely. It's a long story involving certificate expiration dates, but I actually have a frequent flyer ticket BOOKED to take me to Tink. I'm going to change it...but I haven't yet.

I briefly considered getting a package from GET and doing it, even though it's sheer madness. I signed up with Bethany's group for the Nike Women's Half in DC, so that's probably quite enough insanity for one spring.

But if they do open up more slots, um, I might not be responsible for my actions.

I considered the group for Nike. I heard the pace was 15 for that and I'm not trying to stack my odds against myself. Lol. Good point about the city of Anaheim. Whew! Now I can stop thinking about it.
