There are so many options available which is fabulous for the running community.
I do alot of speedwork, so generally I have an idea of what I can do. I'm much more of an endurance runner than a speed runner, so I don't really lose a ton of speed across distances(relatively - obviously my 5K is faster than my marathon, but still) Finding leg speed is what I struggle with, and none of my shorter races ever accurately predict my longer distance races. I think I'll run a sub 4 marathon before I'll run a sub 25 5k

While at Disney swapping out our APs for the new RFID card, I was told early registration for AP would be 6/4 with Disney Visa the following day. If you have the new RFID AP card, you have to call to register. You can't register the new cards on the passholder landing site.

Did they happen to mention anything about DVC members getting early registration? I have an RFID AP and I'm afraid I'll have trouble getting through on the phone. I'd like to try DVC online, that would get me a $10 discount too, but since I tend to have trouble with the DVC website stalling I could be dialing or on hold with the annual pass holder phone line at the same time. Also do you know if they only have so many slots for early registration? Or Is it possible it will sell out then? I'm sorry worried about not being able to register and its still weeks away. I can only imagine my nerves 24 hours before

I'm a bit confused by your response. The MM would be all out effort. If you're doing speedwork, your 200, 400, 800 or 1600 pace would certainly be faster than your LD pace. This is confusing me. Galloway roughly adds 2mins/mile to your MM time to calculate average pace/mile LD when you add in the walk break. This is a predictive value not an absolute.

I'd love a sub-4 marathon but first I have to break through the darn 2 hour 1/2 barrier. Grrr..... this fall.... I'm on it!

For the January marathon weekend registration, DVC and annual passholder registration opened the same day. There are limiting the # of early registrations. I too am going to be freaked out. I demanded to speak to 2 people before I was even willing to update my new card. I'm hopeful that if I can't get through on the phone line one of my friends who also has AP will share the link. FYI... I was told that if you're booking your travel over the phone you can add the race registration and avoid the active.com fees. I was told this after complaining about my crazy fees signing up for the Dopey.

So, my question is, do I just keep going up? I would be half marathon ready before the end of the summer if I do that and I'm not sure I want to push it, I just want to build my base mileage. BUT, if I start a program in the fall, almost all the training I have found is going to have me going back to running 2 miles for the first couple weeks? I'm not sure I can do that!

So do I do two half trainings back-to-back or what? Right now I'm just working on getting a really solid 10K time but not sure where to go after that or if I should just keep running all summer to get strong before I add more mileage??

If that was confusing, sorry!



Thanks Jo! I'm pretty over the moon about it, I have races lined up for almost every month until then! 5K tomorrow morning!
I didn't see if anyone answered this, but you can find training plans that will start you out at 3-4 mile short runs. Or, just maintain what you're doing, and start training at the point in the training plan you've selected where it matches what you're already doing. Just because the plan is made to get you half-marathon ready in X # weeks doesn't mean you have to follow it to a T, you know? The first half of a lot of plans is just getting you to build your endurance, and if you've already built it, it's not necessary to go back to the basics.

Does it work for Disneyland AP holders too? I can't seem to get a straight answer out of them on this.

Thank you! That's what I thought, but it made me feel like I will just be running with no plan for quite a while...which is probably a good thing anyway!

Happy Mothers Day! Gym report: 10K in 89min = personal best! What does PR mean. Also first time trying Nike+ app - pretty cool. Have to resort to something other than my iphone because the battery poops out

Yes! It sounds like you've gotten yourself up to a good enough maintenance run that you don't necessarily need a plan just yet!

Congratulations! PR = personal record, same as personal best.

Re: your iphone, do you close all your apps? (double click the home button, all your open apps pop up on the bottom and you can press+hold them and close them out) It helps battery life to keep them closed, and won't affect your pop-up notifications.

Total guess based on the WDW January weekend but DL AP had early registration then and WDW AP had early registration for DL weekend.

Ugh I hate waiting so much! So far the best info I've gotten on the early registration has been here, so thanks! I'm planning on signing up for the Glass Slipper Challenge and Tink and I can't believe how hyper I am about registration... Come on June 4th!

Since last Princess, I've switched to straight running without walk intervals. I've gotten my long run back up to the 10k distance and I really want to do a "real" 10k race soon to get a better corral placement, but I can't find anything local anytime soon. Race season here is November through April and other than an annual July 4th 5k, there is nothing available without driving to Jax or Orlando. Anyone else having a hard time finding a 10k this time of year?
