Awesome work! I agree with joan4mickey - maybe try throwing in a minute or so of a jog every 5 minutes for a bit and see how that feels.
Agreed!!! If it weren't for the ladies providing support, I would be lost.

I love the rawthreads shirts! I bought the 'race you to the castle' one at last year's princess.

This year my princess is Ariel. Anyone know of a site that has a shirt for her? (I couldn't find one at rawthreads.)

First, congrats on the 12 miles ! You say you came in under time, is that the 16 min per mile pace Disney gives ? If you are close to the 16 min time, I agree with the others on trying a 1 min run every few minutes to build up a cushion. Also try walking a little faster per mile but don't go too fast at first so you have energy left for the last few miles.

Went to my first chiropractor appointment last night...really liked her and feeling good about treatment that she can provide. PrincessV...she did the same move on me that you sent the link to the video for, lol! Did a little heat/electrode therapy too that really felt nice. As far as the evaluation though, I can't decide what I'm feeling about it. Her words were "I will always tell you what I think is best for you and your body and you can then decide if you want to do what I suggest or if you want to do something else. I will always treat you regardless of what you choose. That being said, I don't think running is the best thing for you right now." I made it clear that I still had a race planned at the end of Feb and that I would continue with my running schedule 100% for that, non-negotiable, which she was fine with. But I know I probably need to stop for a good while after that...and that's where it's weird for me. I thought if someone told me that I'd be kinda happy about it...I kinda hate training, at least I thought I did. But now that someone's actually recommended stopping, I'm kinda pissed /sad WTH?

There was alot of info covered in my initial appointment last night and it was alot to take in at once and I've since come up with some questions and other things I'd like to ask her about and get clarification on, so my future in running will be one of them. But I may be in for a hiatus after PHM now. More reason to squeeze every ounce of fun out of it this time I guess.

If anyone is intereseted, they released more rooms at Coronado Springs. We were booked at All Star Sports and tried about a month ago to switch and was told Coronado Springs was booked. We called yesterday to see if anyone happened to cancel and was told that they were going to release more rooms today. They took our number and said they would call us today. I really did not expect a call but my friend that I am rooming with just received the call. It was $189 to change from All Star Sports to Coronado Springs for our three night stay.

I'm convinced that ALL chiros start off with that and go from there!

I totally understand, really. I know that what I'm doing now with working out run/walk intervals, seeing my chiro weekly and PT exercises is really just a means of finishing this race. After it, I fully expect to need time off for the inflammation in my knee (because I think we all know I'll push as hard as I can in the race) to go down and then it'll be like starting from scratch; low mileage, learning anew how to do this sport without creating injuries. Or at least one particularly annoying injury. Maybe think of it that way - you may need some time off to fix what's not working right, but then you can restart in a way that feels better than ever. It sounds like you've got a good ally in your chiro to make that happen!

So glad you found someone you like! When I was dealing with my Plantars Faciitis before the 2011 race, i was getting ultrasound therapy and Iontopheresis which felt amazing! I will tell you that I stopped training teh month before the race because of my injury and I completed it fine. I then took an extended break to heal which I eventually did. Do you think you can scale back SOME on your running for now? Your body has done many halfs and maybe you need some time to heal right now...... and you can still do the race. When I was being treated, I was seeing a sports doc and a PT....both said I could try the race and I am glad I did it was so much fun. Anyway, hoping you feel better soon!

Your talk with the chiro sounds like my talk with my doc. I've invested as you have FAR too much time, training and money to stop this close to the race. My issue is my lungs just not being happy with albuterol for the asthma but as I told Doc...the goal is to get me through the race then I PROMISE to take some time for the body to heal.

Maybe all us princesses with health issues who need to heal after the race should got to Disney's Aulani in Hawaii to rest up...just saying'

Tables in Wonderland just announced 3 special events Princess weekend.... Thursday night at The Wave and Friday and Saturday nights at the Disney Design Warehouse. If you have (or are thinking about getting) a TiW card, these look like fun for those traveling with friends or a spouse. (not really geared towards kids).
