Aw! Thanks for saying that! I did day 2 of my training today. It was a little harder but I forgot to take a hit on my inhaler before starting so that may be why. I teach pre-k children so I am somewhat active throughout the day. I'm sure that helps. Most surprising to me is that I'm not terribly sore so far. Well, that and that the metal in my leg isn't causing any issues. Anyway, even if I don't make it as a runner, I can say I tried and reap the benefits of the added exercise.

I sure hope they still have tee shirts when we are there in May. I want one of those even if I end up mostly walking the course.

I was diagnosed with exercise induced asthma as well, used advair 2x/day and albuterol when it was well controlled. Been taking a break from training, I only do easy runs now and without meds I have to stop every 3-5 min and walk 30 sec to get my air. Very disappointing since I ran an entire half before.

I picked up a cc5k shirt when I was there last Friday.. Plenty left even at the end of the day!

knee pain

We are sailing on the Fantasy on May 18 and I have been trying to get ready/into shape to RUN the 5K when we get to Castaway Cay. I have been exercising since December and every time I try to run, knee pain starts. When it starts, I go back to the bikes and ellipticals for awhile and then try running again. Any runners out there in there 40's who have had the same problem?

The mainstream advice would be to go see a PT or orthopedist and see what they say.


For me, I'd take my knees to my chiropractor who knows how to manipulate "extremities" (not all do, which is fine since it's not a spine, but mine does) and have him check them out. When I was a teen my mom's chiro did some sort of manipulation on my legs and obliterated my shin splints from that day forward. My current chiro can tell just from seeing me come in when I'm having knee weirdness and checks them out for me. He's keeping my knees healthy! That's what I would do.

And for me, if that didn't help after multiple attempts, I'd go see someone else and have them evaluated in other ways.

This may seem silly but have you checked your shoes? Maybe you need a new pair or a different brand? I know when I put too many miles on my shoes, my knees start to scream and my plantar francitiis acts up.

My knees actually hurt when I'm not running, and feel great while I run! Weird. Either way, knee pain is not good. I hope you figure it out.

Yes, I would check your shoes. I tried the limited way last summer (the shoes with very little sole or shock padding) and it about killed my knees, since then I did a lot of research and upgraded my shoes and I'm loving running again.

C25k has really helped too.

Best of luck to everyone!

I had the same problem. I changed shoes and started taking Osteo Bi-Flex Advanced Triple Strength. I can tell a big difference now. I'm 48 and I have only been running for a year now. I did three 5Ks last year and my goal this year is four. With a change of diet and running I have lost 46 lbs.

I have changed shoes. No difference. We live in Upstate NY so any running in the winter is done indoors. The local YMCA has an indoor track and it is very small, so you are always turning, so I think that might have added to issue. That and I am a big fellow, 6'3" 250lbs and dropping. I am now running on the treadmill and not having to turn every 5 steps. My knees feel different, still a little pain, but more of a tightness and not a sensation of my knee caps swimming around.

Thanks for all the advice. I will try to pills if the pain worsens.

When I ran the 5k last month there were people running, walking, and a combo of the two. Just have fun and don't hurt yourself. Remember it's a "fun run" not a race.

Reading this thread there are a variety of experiences. Can someone provide a recent account for the CC5K on the Fantasy? Did you have the bibs, medals and tshirts for purchase at the shops?

Sailing on the April 7th Dream cruise and can't wait to run this. I've run one race in every Disney race weekend since 2011 and can't wait to add this one to the list!
