Don't let those glutes slack!!! LOL!!

It is so hard knowing we're getting close and not being able train.

Is there a separate e-mail to send your proof of time to? I tried contacting RunDisney because I couldn't find it on their site... And they still haven't gotten back to me . I just want to make sure I get it in before Dec 1st. They were fairly quick in responding to my bib change request. I know I can always bring it, but I figure if I have it, why not now!

That's the one I used as well. It took about a month for them to get back to me though but they did eventually confirm it with me.

Not a smoker, no known lung/heart issues. I'm 5"4 , XS, and 45. Is it just how it is for beginners ?
It is, but I have spent well over a year with my aerobic capacity being my limiting factor. I have started doing the classic pattern of long, slow distance at an aerobic heart rate (60-70% max) and speed work 1-2 days per week at a much higher heart rate (85%+, think OMG I'M GONNA DIE). I feel like I'm finally starting to push past a long plateau I was on. Still slow, still limited by my lungs, but better. It might be worth a try. Jenny Hadfield's site (John Bingham's co-author and wife) has some great information about this.

Apparently I have a lazy butt too. I was at my pain management doc yesterday and he said because of my back/SI injury I have it has effected how my glutes can/do work. My abductors have tried to compensate and have hurt themselves in the process.

I have hardly run at all for the last couple of weeks and I'm worried because Tink is in 51 days.

Here is a video of some great exercises to help strengthen the glutes. I definitely overcompensate for my lazy glutes with my abductors as well, and these exercises have helped me a lot.

Hi everyone

Wanted to finally say hi to everyone. Princess 2012 was my very first half marathon. I lurked some on this board last year and had a lot of the same issues, concerns and nightmares. I had a stress fracture in fall of 2011 and was out for 3 months I finally started running again in Nov 2011 and only had 3 months to get ready for Disney. I was determined I was going to complete it no matter if I was running, walking or crawling. It was hard coming back from an injury and training through the winter but having Disney as the goal made it all worth while. Needless to say I finished Disney and had a great time doing it. I have done several more half marathons this year and will be back for the 2013 Princess Half. I can't believe it is less than 3 months away. It will be extra special for me this year as I will be running it with my mom and my sister.

Here is a picture from last year's race. This was just before the finish line. Now I really need to start working on next year's costume.

Bskelly I got the Pm and also sent it to friend who might run.

I called rundisney today cause I didn't know what to put in the email and man were they busy. 3 different people picked the phone up thinking I was someone else. Then I talked to a guy and asked what to put in the email to change my finish time and princess, he said don't worry let me do it right now. It was super nice of hIM considering how busy They were.

I also asked about the Tinkerbell cause I think I can do better than 2:45 (fingers crossed) and he said your chip starts when you cross the start line and ends when you cross the finish line. Bring both the clock and the chip time to the Princess and they will adjust you accordingly.

Yeah so excited

What an encouraging story! I hope I look half as cute as you do when I cross/crawl across that finish line.

Thanks guys. Yes I made the costume. I was a basic purple tech shirt I got at Marshalls then I sewed on the white part and used fabric glue for the ribbon and trim. I made the tutu as well and sewed it to an elastic waistband. I did get a purple running skirt from Sport skirts to wear under it.
