Add me to the list!

I am also running in the 5K with DS in a stroller the morning before.

I booked our return flights- still need to figure out where we're staying (torn between Poly, Cars Suite @ AOA, and Coronado) and figure out if we are flying in Thursday night or Friday morning.

I love BLT

This will be the first trip to FL in a long time where we don't make a side trip to Miami. We love to go down for dinner and I really love to get me some guava pastries from Versailles in Little Havana

It was for me. I started my wogging "career" (walking/jogging LOL) at age 54 with training for my 1st WDW HM, my 1st ever HM.

I don't remember when I incorportated swimming in my w/o. I do not think it was the 1st year of training, but let me tell you that really helped my breathing issues. I am not a distance swimmer, but as soon as I figured out how to relax in the pool I tried to transition it to outside. You could try that if you have a pool available.

Part of your training is to increase your aerobic capacity, so you are going to challenge yourself as you train. Try concentrating on breathing for some of your training. I took this link from Runners World, but there are others out there as well. Runners World breathing tip article

Find the fun!

Hey, Dumbo Buddy - I remember you from 2011! Your post on "running angry" has always stuck in my mind - that was exactly how I felt some days!

What advice do you all have for shin splints!!?!? We have been working so hard for this and I don't want shin splints to stop us from getting our medal.

I have dealt with these in the past and the main thing that helped me was changing my running form. Sounds like he has done everything he is supposed to, but I would also throw in the stretches other posters have mentioned and maybe do some strength exercises for legs; sometimes when other parts of the leg / butt are weak, it makes the calves & shins pick up the slack and work harder.

Got shoes for over pronation. Got about 5 diff pairs actually. Wasn't until I found a pair that didn't have a huge wedge in the arch and felt "normal" to me that I was able to run without the shin splint pain. (mizuno nexus). Apparently even tho my feet are somewhat flat and over pronate when standing and walking, my running stride seems to correct this naturally already and the major stability shoes were causing me more pain than help. Moral of my story is, try as many different shoes as u need to, including ones that might not totally make sense mathematically. And while he has pain, ice, massage w a small foam ball, and stretch (a calf stretch but with his toes pointing in behind him and also sit and pull toes back).
Interesting. I also overpronate (the wear on the inside of my shoe is proof enough of that) but my last pair of shoes always bugged me, and it was exactly that big wedge feeling on the inside. I moved up to the Ravenna 3 and it doesn't feel so prominent. However, I started having terrible shin pain again. Realized that I moved from a town where the running paths were completely flat to a town that is nothing but hills. Was worried about my 10K on Tgvg and was sure I would get my first DNF b/c of my shins. NO problem, NO pain - not even after. Mostly flat course, with just 2 serious hills thrown in, but it was an uphill without a steep downhill on the other side. So, now realizing that even though I am in shape, I am NOT invincible and need to stick to the flat lands!

I ran the W&D as my first 1/2 marathon ever as a challenge for turning 50. Love it so much! Hope I'm still running at 100! Couldn't train as needed the prior 2 months before the race due to injury but still managed to complete it at a fast walk with a little interval running. They were 16 minute miles but now I have something to beat.

This week (after 1 week off and another week of just walking) I jumped back into the Jeff Galloway schedule to end with the Princess. Yesterday was the 3 mile run day and it felt good to push the last mile. Would love to get down to a 12 -13 pacing by Feb.

Need to order new shoes this week.
That's awesome! I'm 42 and have several friends who are just a little older than me think that they are "too old". Never! I didn't even start until I was about to turn 40! My Princess partner and I are planning our Coast to Coast assault in 2014 when she turns 50!

The sports doc also gave me some exercises to do. One of them is to stand on a step with your heels hanging over the back, rise up on your toes and pick one leg up and slowly lower yourself back down on that one leg (then do the other leg). Do 10 reps and then point your toes inward and do the same thing (this one was a little painful for me at first).
Thanks for sharing this. I'll have to try this when my calves are feeling tight.

Sometimes. It also depends on where you are as well - weather can play into that. All the plans I've seen say that if you can't speak naturally on a long run, then you are pushing your pace too hard. Check with your coach, but I would say maybe ease back on your pace until you get past this feeling.

Can't believe we are so close! Princesses, you just don't know how much I look forward to this trip. This will be my 3rd girls-only Princess weekend and I love it. I have been saving practically since we got home last year and have the $$ for all the fixed expenses. Am asking for Disney gift cards for Christmas to help pay for food in the parks. It's such a relief knowing that I've got it covered, and it takes away some of the guilt about going on such an expensive trip without taking the family. I've been Queen of the Substitutes at the preschool where I work!

Moon Faerie, hope you are feeling better again soon!

I agree you are never to old to start. 8 weeks ago I would have said you were crazy if you thought I'd run a 5k not to mention 13.1 miles. Then my DD challenged me to the princess and I told her "I'd try". In the 8 weeks I went from a pace of 22 to 12:30 and run in 2 5k's. The concern I have now is my pace seems to be slowing. I'm using Galloway 13.1 but I've dropped to a 14 min pace on my last 2 workouts. One was 8 miles, today's was 3 miles. Any suggestions? Or is this slump normal. I feel good during the workout and am surprised it is so slow when I've finished. I almost forgot I am 57 and have never ever run before.

I was so confused on where the thread went! Can you add me to the list too?

I'm slightly freaking out how close we are, and that it seems most people are starting their training plans. I was out 3.5 weeks for surgery, and so my longest run recently was the 5k on Thanksgiving.mi did 2 miles today and it wasn't easy. I'm nervous. I need to be up to 4 miles soon. Panic attack to start now.

In other news, I have my entire costume picked out and ordered! Woohoo!

Gone for a few days and you all up and move on me! Sitting at MCO right now waiting to fly home we had such a fun trip...as I suspected, I did not get a run in. But I did tons of walking and I have the blisters to prove it! I'm glad I got my long run in before we left. I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! The Fairy Godmother says she can't wait to see us all at the start line!

Oh and I waited in a 35 minute line to lunch at Be Our Guest Friday...I know a lot of us are celebrating there after the race...it was spectacular! I can't wait for dinner there

Your long runs are supposed to be 1.5-2 min slower than your normal pace for training. So I think you are right on track!

I know this was from the end of the last thread about running etiquette, but if you have not listened to the Mickey Miles Podcast, check it out. They did to episodes on running etiquette. In general it is n awesome podcast all about running at Disney.
