Did 10.78 in 1:48 with outrageous winds. Very happy with the run, but oh, so sore today.

I'm good until 6 miles, then it's crash and burn time. I'm taking Gus and having one every 45-60 min, but it seems that's not enough. Anyone have a great pre-run fueling plan or something other than chomps, Gus, etc that you take on your runs?
My training is going well. I set out to do 10 miles on my treadmill last night, but stopped at 9. No particular reason, that's just what my body seemed to be telling me to do. I think I just started too late-8 PM- after a rather full day. I feel good about the miles and did and am not concerned about the one I didn't.

My Tink weekend plans are evolving. We have 3 day hoppers and hope to spend one day enjoying the ocean. As for food? Pasta meal on Friday evening, hopefully at the place suggested earlier in this thread. I am hoping to find a place to get fish and maybe some rice on Saturday evening. And, today I decided I want pancakes post race! Who the heck knows what I will want come January 20, but when I saw your question earlier today about food I decided that I will want pancakes! I don't really even like them very much!

I hope you figure out your nutrition. Sometimes I bring a granola bar on a long run/event so I have some food I can chew! It seems to stave off my hunger as well. Good luck finding that balance.

For the Gu do you use regular GU or Roctane?

What do you eat for breakfast and you long before your workout?

Do you use electrolytes? Sports drink, endurolytes or S caps or something like nuun?

Have you tried real food during your workout? I have used fig newton bars during a marathon and they worked fine. Some other foods are pb&j, nuts, avocado, cheese sandwiches, trail mix or anything else with a mixture of carbs and protein. There is no rule of what you should use for nutrition. Figure out what you like and see if you can make it portable for a workout/race.

The main thing to remember with nutrition is you are replenishing what your body needs and not replacing what has been used. Generally you need 140 calories per hour. One GU is 100 calories so if you have one every 60 minutes you are under calories. This varies with everyone so you need to try different nutrition regimens to see what works. Generally I use nutrition every 35-40 minutes, but my wife uses it every 30 minutes.

I hope this helps.

It was regular Gu. I am not familiar with the other- what's in it?

I would love to run with whole foods instead, but that takes more planning on my part. HA. I am going to work on that though- those are great suggestions. I generally don't have stomach issues when I run, or running after eating, so I think this might be what I need to do.

My breakfast is typically a banana and a greek yogurt (fruity kind). I didn't think eating oatmeal or a bagel really helped immediately for fuel- which is why the whole carb loading thing the night before isn't a real thing. Am I wrong in that? If so--- I will gladly add something carby to the breakfast!

I also usually take nuunn water- but I did leave it in the car. My HIUGE planning disconnect. My route was to take me from my car, up the big hill, over the dam and back, then then down the hill to the car. That's 4 miles. Stop at car, get drink, get fuel, keep going. BUT- I was feeling so good I decided to go back and forth across the dam 2 times (adding 2 miles) which delayed me getting back to the car for the other fuel. <--- me at mile 6, 7. Big mistake!

I had 1 regular Gu on me that I did use, and mistakenly thought it was 1 per hour not the calorie count. But you DID tell me that before- I just didn't pay attention. I remember this discussion about the calories. Thank you- I'll totally try to eat something every 30 min and see how that goes. Should keep me more even, right?

Sounds great! I will try anything- granola bar might help! lol Thanks for suggestion. Pancakes really does sound good after a run. I'd be down for that!

Lack of electrolytes and not enough nutrition can definitely cause problems. This is a learning process for everyone and I am constantly adjusting food/electrolyte/water balance to see what works best. It's always best to keep changing things and having mediocre workouts until you find the right balance so you can avoid a bad race.

Been lurking for a few months off and on, running the Tink this year after taking a year off from long runs due to overuse injuries. I am a triathlete who runs because it is the last leg of the race. I love all things Disney.

This takes lots of planning and prep. If you do not like to run with a lot of extra items it makes it even harder. I did an Ironman in Spet.'11, I do not like racing and eating whole foods, but had to for this long race. I spent 2 months training to learn how to eat whole food while racing. So, if you are planning on eating whole food for Tink, start eating some whole food during every training run, even speed work.

I am not an expert, but it looks like you need some more pre-race fuel. You could down a Gu right before the start, then fuel every 30mins. Each person is different. I use one gel at start, one at 5mile and one at 9 mile mark for a half.

The curse of feeling good

Try different fueling techniques during your training runs and be sure to document them. Then after 3 weeks evaluate your data.

Keep on training.

Hi folks,

I am late to the DIS party, but I'm doing the Tinkerbell Half this year (in theory, my training has been deplorable thanks to a crazy fall with lots of work travel). My only goal is to finish within the time limit. I am a run/walk gal through and through... Any tips or ideas at this last date?

TIA

I was just coming here to post about the Tink D&B bags:

They were such a smash hit in 2012 that runDisney has decided to re-release the commemorative Tink Dooney and Bourke Purses that it sold for the inaugural Tinker Bell Half Marathon in Disneyland.

Purses must be pre ordered through Active.com by a registered participant. Only 2 bags per person.

Prices:

$92.00 - Dooney & Bourke Wristlet
$209.00 – Dooney & Bourke Cross Body Purse
$246.00 – Dooney & Bourke Small Shopper

Purses must be picked up at the Disneyland Hotel event merchandise location on Friday, January 18th (11am – 7pm) or Saturday, January 19th (9am – 5pm). Any Dooney & Bourke Purses not picked up at the Expo will not be mailed and will not be refunded. Quantities are limited.

I love that they are doing pre-orders! Hopefully I can get one this year!

One big tip is to make sure you don't try to do too much mileage in a short period of time or increase your weekly total mileage by a lot, you could get injured that way. If you have your run/walk ratios you could try to push yourself a bit each week if you're close to the cut off time 1 or 2x a week. For example if your ratio is minute/minute try minute and 5/10 sec? That way you can push yourself a bit, but not where it's something crazy you can't keep up with the whole run through and it's like a mini speed workout too. Hope that helps a bit!

Thanks for the tips! I think I may forgo trying to do real foods on runs this year. It seems like I can barely get my act together to get out the door, so it might be asking too much to get it all together! LOL I'll try taking one at start and going from there- will give the every 30 min option a try and see if that works for me. Appreciate the feedback!

I was sick Sun and Mon, so I wonder if that may have also factored into all this. Feeling better now though, thank goodness!

Being sick and training never seems to work out

Up here in PA this time of year is always so tough to get out and go, temps can be 20 degrees one day and 60 the next and it always seems to be a 10 - 20 mph wind.

One of the best things I do for each race is make a goal that is suitable for me based on my training. I have a 5 miler saturday, I have had some great runs, great yoga workouts but not so great nutrition. I am set my gola based on this and the fact that I have to work late friday night.

I am never disappointed when I finish a race because my goal is always attainable, not always reached.

Next saturday is a Santa will run for Beer 3k-ish. You MUST dress as santa and the race goes from bar to bar. First 20 in bar get a free beer, the rest have to pay. Last bar is a huge christmas party. My goal for that one is to have a driver pick me up

Hope you continue to feel better.

Keep on Training.
