Whenever I've had to take time off for illness, I have found that if I suffer through a workout or 2 then I'm back on track. I will say that 3 weeks is the longest I've ever taken off. It sucks to feel how difficult it can be even after a relatively short hiatus. Assuming your doctor has cleared you to go back to your regular activity level, just suffer through it and make yourself do it. It's like you gotta wake your muscles up to get back on board. You'll be back in no time!

There will be a bus from the resorts. It probably won't be a 'disney' but, but more likely a Mears bus. It should be clearly marked.

If it works out, it will probably be better for us. Unfortunately there's not a lot we can do until Mon to get things in motion. Depending on how long it takes to find a job and what the job pays, I'm not sure if I'll make it down for the PHM or not, but I'm going to keep assuming I will.
Ugh, I'm so sorry that the universe keeps throwing all these problems at you. Keep your head up, things will turn around!

ETA: I saw your later post with your update, sounds like you have a great plan that will great for your family in the future.

After trying to find a Merida costume for weeks, I switched gears and bought a Mulan costume instead. Yellow running skirt, green shirt and a navy belly band (for early pregnancy, I'm not pregnant but I figured that would be comfortable for a running costume). It looks awesome laid out on the couch, but it's not particularly flattering on.

I've lost 30 lbs this year, but I have another 30 lbs to go and every one of those is accentuated by the yellow running skirt. Kind of discouraging right now, but I'm going to try to use it as motivation to get back on track with my diet.

I took 2 weeks off after my Thanksgiving 10k to rest my foot and hip/iliac crest which were tender. My running partner has a stress fracture in her foot so I'm extra paranoid about that right now. I got my first long run since the break this morning. 6.2 miles and it went pretty well. I was getting worried about being sidelined but I'm feeling more confident that I'll be at the starting line in February!

I love how everyone is so creative with putting their costumes together. I want to dress as Alice but am crafty-challenged. I have visions of how to put it together in my head but actually doing it is another story.

Way to go on the weight loss!!

If it only takes me a few workouts to get back in the groove, that would be great! I'm hoping to be back up to my usual 3 mile short runs by the end of this week and start adding long runs again by the end of next week. It was encouraging to see that my pace hadn't taken much of a hit though.

I know the hard-core holiday season is coming, and I've been trying to get my mileage up before it gets here: 8.5 mi last weekend, and 10mi this weekend. Between Christmas and post-New Year's cruise on the Fantasy, I'm not sure I'll get too more long runs between now and then. (I thought I saw someone say they just got back from the Fantasy and it was really rocky--not good for running.... details?)

I had some weird lower back-pain on my rest day, which actually got _better_ when I ran this weekend. I think it's related to weak abdominal muscles, which I generally tense while I run (as it came back later). I guess it's time to start doing some ab-exercises. Any suggestions?

Yep, I'm a counter, lol! I started paying attention to see if my strides were too long... nope: my natural cadence runs consistently between 168-180 steps per minute. But I'm also 5'1" - a 180 cadence is only about a 10:30/mile pace for me.

Well, I finished my 5 miles Saturday... but I'm not sure if I should celebrate yet, lol! Knee pain in my ITBS leg started up around mile 4... but I couldn't really tell if it was ITBS pain or my usual arthritic stuff that comes and goes during a run. It wasn't the stabbing, ice-pick-to-a-ligament kind of pain I was having previously, but I opted not to run through it, just in case. I'd been doing 1:30walk/:45run intervals up to that point, but started skipping every 2 runs for the last mile. No residual pain afterward, so I'm hopeful...

Well, I just CANNOT kick this stuff I don't seem to have gotten any better since I saw a doctor (well, actually a nurse) last week. At that time, I could not get in to see my normal doctor, so I went to one of those "Take Care Clinics" in Walgreens...which I've done before with no problems, but I've never had a sinus infection last this long and be this bad. I have an appointment with my regular doctor tomorrow now...I'm afraid that with all the fluid that's been in my ears since last week that I'll get an ear infection too so I'm hoping they can do something else for me tomorrow. I'm so clogged up in my head, I feel like I'm walking around with ear plugs in...it's terribly annoying! So, that means I did NOT get out this saturday to run. Tinker Bell is right around the corner and I'm freaking out about this! My BF is running a 5 miler today after work and we carpooled together today, so I'm thinking I'll go to the park with him and, if nothing else, try to walk a couple of miles at least. I feel like I have to do something!

It doesn't help that we're having roller coaster weather...it was in the low 80's yesterday...40's today, possible 30's tonight. And it seems to just keep going up and down, up and down every week. UGH! On the bright side, my cats are seriously taking advantage of the extra cuddle time with me on the couch lately...it's cute!

Sorry to hear you are still not feeling better. I'm sure your Dr will help when you see him. I know it's frustrating especially since Tink is right around the corner. But I think going with your BF after work even just for a walk will "mentally" make you feel better regarding your training.

A bug keep going around our house too. It seems like one of us has had something for the past couple of weeks and now it's my turn. Could not go for a long run yesterday. I haven't gone for a run for two weeks now I'm really starting to panic a litttle. The main thing is to and start feeling healthy and try and stay healthy.

Get better soon !!!

I'm getting sooooo excited about my costume! I waffled back and forth so much for ToT and ended up in not much special. So I am trying to get it out of the way sooner. I can't divulge any info just yet until I find out if it's gonna come together but if it does I think it will be really cool! So excited!
