Since I don't sleep that well to begin with, 0200 won't seem that bad! And any advice you can give will help too!

I only did the full marathon this year and didn't sleep at all Friday night with the goal of when I went to sleep at 6-7pm on Saturday I would fall asleep easy and get at least 7-8 hours of sleep before the marathon,at least that was the plan.Everything was running how I planned,I was in bed at 6:30pm,felt sleepy and I probably even dozed off for ten minutes and for some reason I was awoken and after that I couldn't get in sleep mode again.Tried as hard as I could but was tossing and turning for hours probably getting an hour or two maximum of sleep,definitely not the plan,as I'm like a different person if I don't get enough sleep.Luckily for me the adrenaline and excitement that probably kept me from falling asleep was probably what kept me going and feeling perfectly fine to be able to complete the marathon.Next year the plan will be the same but I'll probably take some melatonin as well.The whole sleep thing is what would worry me most if I were to try to do the Goofy or Dopey.Next year I'm sticking to the full marathon but 2015 I will definitely be doing the Goofy or possibly the Dopey.

Here's my advice: don't get up at 2. Get up at 3 or 330 instead. You'll still have plenty of time to make it to the start.

Thanks! I'll be staying at one of the Downtown hotels and taking a cab to the start, so I'll probably have to get up a little earlier. My only problem will be getting ANY sleep at all!

Anyone have any advice on the Hal Higdon novice program? I like that I can progress over 30 weeks, but the days of the week won't work for my long run and rest day. How much will it hurt if I switch up some of the schedule days? I've been running for about 8 months and I've completed 4 1/2 marathons since January. I believe I won't have a problem finishing a marathon if I train correctly. Any comments?

I used his Novice 2 program for the 2013 WDW Marathon - my first.

It seems like you are looking at the Novice Supreme. In my opinion, since you have already done 4 half marathons this year, is to do his Novice 1 or Novice 2 program instead. I had done no halfs when I started (I did two during the course of training) but was running about 20 miles/week, and I did fine. (Of course, I got the flu before the marathon and spent a few hours longer on the course than I had ever imagined, but I was trained and able to finish).

I switched mine up - he had short runs on Tuesday/Thursday, medium run on Wednesday, and long run on Saturday. I did - medium run on Monday, short run on Tuesday, short run on Wednesday, long run on Friday or Saturday.

Does anyone use an app for Race time prediction? I started using this website but I prefer apps if they are available.

For what it is...yes, I like it. You put in your time in one distance and it calculates predictions for other distances. It also gives advice for training paces based on your times.
It doesn't do anything more but I like having it handy.

Been lurking on here for a bit. Dh started running a few months ago and has really started to get serious... so since he agreed to run a disney half, I let him decide which one he wanted. (it is his first so should be about him.. not me. ) And while I was sure I would be doing the phm... and the gsc... He picked the WDW half in January instead. I didn't see a thread just for the half, so please excuse me if this isn't where I should be.

So even though I am a tad disappointed to not be doing the princess in 2014... I am actually VERY excited to be doing a different race. If only I had all the money.. time... and energy in the world I would do both...

Bottom line though... we are all signed up!!! Good thing to since it is at 90%!!!

First time marathoner here - done several other WDW Half Marathons and for some reason decided last weekend that it would be cool to do the Original.....well, Disney original, why not! I mean I can get a room at AKL and don't care about my time as long as I don't get swept.

So that was last weekend, now I'm starting to freak out a little. I know I can do this, just need leg to get well (takes me being patient) so I can start training in June/July.

Couple of questions for this group - please let me know if this is in the wrong place and I'll move it!

1) I've decided to Go Galloway just to keep injuries down, would you recommend the beginner or experienced runner training. I've run a Half in 2:45 before, but honestly thinking Galloway might make me faster. Was going to go with experienced (finishing upright) but wanted to make sure I wasn't crazy.

2) It it nuts to mix in the ToT 10 Miler and another Half Marathon along the way, doesn't correlate 100%, but know I can make it work.

Thanks for any and all advice.

Personally, I would go with experienced if you have already completed a half marathon. I don't think it's crazy at all to add in a 10K and 1/2 into your training. Just line it up with the plan as close as possible. I'll be completing 4-5 1/2s and at least one additional full before Dopey in January.
