On the fence

Hello everyone, Liz, Joe, etc.. DUCKS!!

I am on the fence about registering for both the 2014 10K and the Half.

Having done a few Half marathons before I seem to finish in ok as far as little pain and feeling well and stayed hydrated.

Never done two back to back. I know 6 miles is not a WHOLE lot but will I be ok for the next morning? Currently without any injuries or issues and never been injured as I power walk my events.

I have a few events this fall that I will do prior to January.

Thanks!

You can DO IT!!! I tell you I've just done 2 Dis Halfs so far.

Crossing that finish line at the Happiest Place on Earth is really emotional.
Getting a HIGH FIVE from MICKEY at the finish line!! Priceless.

I'm trying to decide if I need a new pair of running shoes. I ran a 1/2 yesterday and was having some pain/pressure on the pad of the ball of my foot after 6 miles. That was what put me into these shoes and out of my other shoes. I've run in them about 7 months. I'm just starting to journal so I'm not sure how many miles I have on them. Is it likely they are worn out?

Some great info regarding the Marathon weekend is on my blog today. A fellow blogger, Through Heather's Looking Glass, had a one on one with Faron Kelley at runDisney.

Might want to take a look!

And Minnie 10K pre-sales sold out this morning!

Possible. I know my feet hurting are usually a good indication of my shoes needing to be replaced. Any idea of many miles you average a week?

I know it varied according to the where I am on the plan, but I have run 3 - 1/2 marathons in them and I'd guess 16 miles on an average every other week and 11 miles on the opposite weeks over the last 8 months. I guess it does add up.

They say 300-500 miles and it seems like you're at the upper end.

Thanks. . I guess week upon week adds up faster than I thought. Maybe that is why when switching to a full marathon I've read journaling is so important. Thanks all for your help

Lots of different challenges may be present. Could be a change in your gait or broken down shoes? If something was bothering me I would head out to be fitted again. I had an unusual situation this year where I discovered I needed different shoes when running with DD in the BOB versus going out solo.

I think it said noon but I could be wrong. I would try earlier in the day though as it might open early.

We stayed at the Poly last year. It's a great resort for marathon weekend especially if you are in a longhouse by the TTC. The monorail is awesome for getting to the half and full in the morning. For the race it's location seemed to be the best of any of the monorail resorts. The only downside is that there is no hot tub at the Poly.

7 months for most long runners is time for a nee pair. Best to track your milage so you can learn what works for you with each specufic shoe. Also need to go by feel. Buy a new pair and run in them. If it still hurts it is not likely the shoe and put them awayfor a while. If it feels much better, question answered.
