You might even want to check at DL when you're here for Tink. Or we have something called or used to be called DeliverEars. Just a quick call to the park (DL) and your items will be sent to you It's also kind of dangerous if you know what I mean, but SO convenient and you can even use your AP discount.

I have been resting all month. Other than the Hot Chocolate, I have only done cross training. I hope to have a painless 3 miles this weekend.
It's for my lazy butt. I went to a PT because I assumed it was IT band problems. My knee was where I really felt the pain but it seemed likely to be IT band related. He did a screening and sent me to an ortho for a script. The ortho did X-rays and an exam and everything and they both agree that I have an imbalance in my kinetic chain as a result of over-developed quads and calves which are allowing my glutes to slack off. I have a medically diagnosed lazy bottom!!!!

PT 2-3 times a week, a vdeo gait analysis after a month to see if it's helping and then we go from there. I think it's helping but I feel frumpy because I'm not allowed to run. I still go to my pole class once a week but running was my major exercise. He said I can swim or ride a bike but I don't do either of those.

So much for running outside today, it's SNOWING here in south central PA. It's beautiful but I will enjoy the view from the treadmill.

I'm doing well here too-
Glad to hear it! Could your knee pain be weather-related? It finally cooled down here and every darned joint in my body aches.

Ugh, I'm sorry - definitely check with your doc.

I'm a frequent guest at CSR and yes, some rooms are quite a hike to the bus stops... though some are even more of a hike to the pool/food/front desk/etc. I think you should end up in Casitas with a preferred room, and those are pretty convenient to everything.

I am plugging along in PT and still PUP-listed. Feeling frumpy without my runs but trying to keep hope. He told me today another 7-10 days before I can run. I was hoping he would say this weekend.
I know how frustrating that is - hang in there! I swear, once you're cleared for running, it'll feel soooooooo good!

I am recovering from an injury as well and I have one more week until I can slowly start adding running back into my routine. It's killing me not to run. My sports medicine doc stressed the importance of doing exercises for glutes and I thought of you immediately after reading about your lazy butt! I start PT this week and I can't wait until I can get back into the swing of running especially when the PHM is coming up so soon!

I just noticed that the Princess expo will be at Coronado Springs. I've never gone to a Run Disney expo not at WWoS (well, except for DL obviously). Is this a first? Any thoughts as to why?

From what I've read, it was relocated to CSR just a few weeks ago. I don't think they gave any official reason, but some have said it's most likely due to a conflict with an Atlanta Braves spring training game that same day at WWoS. Works out great for us, as we had already booked at CSR!

Newbie to the 1/2 marathon. This is my first 1/2 marathon. I am excited and frightened at the same time. My training is spotty but I plan on beefing it up now. Just wanted to join to see how others are preparing.
