Good job to him! I never would have survived. That is some determination right there.

Hope all turns out well with some rest.

It seems like a lot of injuries being reported here lately. My husband just had an MRI for a possible stress fracture.

I hope you're ok! I tripped and has similar pain a couple months ago. Podiatrist told me I had sprained a tendon that runs from the side of the foot and up into the leg. I hope that yours isn't anything too severe!

I have been doing all of my training pretty faithfully. I have done all of my long runs as scheduled until 3 weeks ago when I was to do the 8/20 (8 Sat & 20 Sun). I did the 8 ok but used older shoes figuring they had life in them so I could use the good shoes for the 20. Well my feet hurt bad after the 8 so lesson learned. Went to do the 20 and I scrapped it at mile 15. I was in pain! My feet hurt and my left hip muscle hurt. I wanted to stop at 10 but went on to 15. Figured I would be ok.

Continued to follow the plan except last weekend I didnt do the 7, I did a half on Thanksgiving instead. This week was to be 10/23 but I decided to do 10/20. Did the 10 yesterday fine. 20 today is not happening. I am sick. I have terrible chills, a horrible sore throat and my head feels funny. I know my body and I wont be able to go out and do this.

Now Im worried. The plan calls for 6 this next weekend, then 7 the following then the last big run of 12/26. Here is my plan. Instead of going down to 6 next weekend, try to do the 10/20 again, taper down to 7 the following then ramp it up and do 12/23 the weekend before Xmas and taper down for 2 weeks before marathon weekend. Will this work? Im just nervous I wont have sufficient training in and I dont want to be swept. Sorry for the long post.
I am in the same boat. My 20 miler didn't happen yesterday. I stopped at about 14.5. Longest run was 17 two weeks ago. The 17 was fine. The 14.5 not so well and barely at pace. Not sure what was going on with me yesterday. Now my plan was to do 6 next weekend, then 7 the following weekend, then 20 as the last long run before taper. Should I just stick to the plan? Or try something like 18-7-20 then taper?

That was horrible! I was supposed to run 16 and only did 15. And I walked a lot of it. I was miserable. I don't understand how 15 this week could be so awful when last week's 14 felt so good. Maybe the heat? It was bright and sunny and 80 degrees in Tampa today. Ugh. I'm not sure I'm going to be able to do this.

Oh my goodness. You are so right. I just went and checked. I guess I should actually look at those side things.

What email blasts? I swear, I don't think I'm on the email list for some reason. Haven't received any runDisney emails since signing up.

Anyway, I found online where to order the bags. Thanks for posting about this! I'm not going to order one but I am happy that the DIS boards are keeping me in the loop!

Did my 23-miler this weekend without incident and at a fairly even, casual pace. I listened to a whole bunch of new NPR's "Wait Wait Don't Tell Me" episodes, which kept me entertained! Glad it's done... One step closer to January 13!

Hang in there... missing a mile can be a learning experience. If this year's marathon is a warm one, you will be much better prepared than if you bailed out or just said no-go

First and foremost you have enough miles and enough back to backs to get through Goofy. Do not worry about the scrapped runs to day. Just follow the plan and consider these modifications....

Do not feel like you have to run the remaining back to backs on the schedule. You already have a feel for the dead leg run so why push injury or illness? Focus on getting the remaining long run in.

If this is you first full, you do not need the full Galloway 26 to be successful. The main reason for the 26 in training is to get a positive thought in your noggin of "I can do this". Trust me, if you convert the final long run to 20 or 21 you are more than good for the race.

Hang in there. Take it easy this week as it sounds like you may have an illness creeping up. Use energy this week to fight the cold/flu, etc. Note it is not uncommon to get ill between now the the week following the race as you are using lots of energy in training.

Hope this helps

cobbler, I follow the John Bingham Marathoning for Mortals plan. The plan takes one up to 20 miles. I followed this plan for my first marathon/Goofy event and continue to follow this plan. It got me over the finish line. In addition, that first training time I did the back-to-back long runs as you have been. I only did that one year. I am sure you will make it over the finish line following the advice Coach Charles offered.

Take care of yourself. Feel better.
