I'm wondering if anyone knows what time we'd need to complete the 12K under in order to improve corral placement. I put in an expected finish time of 5:01 I think when I registered just to put in the shortest time without needing to provide proof. But, if we can run the 12K fast enough to improve upon that, I'd like to. Thanks for any info.
I am not sure if corral placement is based 'solely' on your expected pace or if other considerations also play a role (like the size of each corral, etc.). But I think it comes down to what pace you think you will be running your Full. A 5hr finish time is an 11:27/mm pace time. Does that sound reasonable or does your training support a faster pace?

There are some web sites that will help you determine your marathon pace based upon another race's pace. MacMillan is one that I tend to use at http://www.mcmillanrunning.com/index...sage/calculate

DD has a soccer tournament on Sunday and I'm upset because they made them too early this year. Her last game starts at 10:00 and my race starts at 8:00. If I get it done in 2:30, there is a veryslim chance I might be able to see the end of her game. If anything, this will be my motivation to run faster. Also, since she has her tournament so early, my family won't be there to cheer me on so that makes me a little sad.

I'm going to do some cycling at the gym this week so I can strengthen the calf. Any other ideas so I'm ready for Sunday?
I have had success with the "miracle" shin splint exercise. Stand on a step facing downstairs. You want mostly just your heels on the step. Point your toes down and flex them up, keep that going for 30 seconds, then bend your knees a little and keep going for another 30 seconds. Take a 1-2 minute break and repeat. Take a 1-2 minute break and do a 3rd set. You're supposed to do it everyday. Hope this helps!

I did 4 miles yesterday at about half marathon pace, and I'm feeling pretty pleased with that. Weather was just absolutely perfect. Sunny, 60 degrees, very slight breeze - gorgeous.

Thanks for posting that! I am feeling so much better after seeing even with my terrible ToT, my predicted pace is still right at 7 hours. Hopefully I won't be in the very last corral and it won't be 78 degrees with 84% humidity, lol.

Me too....
My husband and I are doing all three (Dopey). My son, mother and brother are doing the 5k also.. Can't wait!!!!!

I just did my first full marathon yesterday and it was great, although I am SORE today!!! But I have to say I enjoyed the full marathon more than any of the 5 half marathons I have done.... I guess I just had it in my mind set right I knew I was in it for the long haul, so I set my pace slow and did not pay attention to my mile markers or anything...Did not have a time I wanted to finish by, my only goal was to finish..
Made a huge difference!!

well got the all clear to start running again today. It's about to cause I was starting to go crazy just sitting around.

It was also a year ago today that I ran my first half marathon ever down at Disney during the Wine and Dine.

Welcome back. I know a forced break can drive you bonkers. At least it did me!

Any seasoned marathoners have any advice for quick recovery after a marathon. I know training helps but I still have trouble bouncing right back the next day.. I am a bit concerned for the goofy I signed up for. I am confident I can do it, however I would like any advice. I have the compression socks and they help speed recovery. I have also heard of the ice bath (have not tried that one). I just finished my first full yesterday and I feel swollen ( feet and hands) is this normal?
After half marathons I have some tenderness but not anything like after the full.
Any advice would be appreciated!! Sorry if this was already discussed on this thread.....
Thanks.

Yay, Courtney!!! I am so happy to hear this great news! Ramp up carefully, though. No more injuries! I need to see you out there in January when we kick butt during Marathon Weekend! Lol

Here's what works for me: walk around after the finish to let your muscles cool off gradually. Ice bath for 15 minutes or so. Compression socks for the next few hours. More walking around that afternoon. Walk or slow jog a mile or two the next morning. Good massage that afternoon. The key is to get your legs walking to prevent stiffness from setting in.

I used the McMillan Calculator and it predicted a 5:34 Marathon! WOW! I really thought it would take longer! Of course, I might end up walking the last 6-10 miles depending on my final strategy, so it might take longer, but that makes me happy!
