I need encouragement from walkers
I have officially registered for the TOT 10miler. I am walking at a solid 15 minute mile pace - usually between 3 and 5 miles 3 times a week. I would love to hear from any of you who have walked any of the rundsiney races.
Thanks so much

I walked the 5k at a stroll. It was like walking in the park, litteraly.
I walked and ran the half marathon.
I mostly walked fast but did some jog in the full.
You are doing fine! I find the best workout is to get out. I walk a lot of hills just to get my legs in shape.
If you are going to walk a race, Disney is the one to do it in .

I inadvertently wound up walking most of last year's TOT - I was injured going in and was only able to run intervals for the first couple miles. After that, I attempted a run every couple miles, but mostly walked. Compared to mostly running a Disney race, it's really not different - the scenery just goes by more slowly! A 15:00/mile average pace will be fine to get you through. Key is training for the distance of your race while maintaining that pace.

TOT 10 Miler
im signed up for the 10 miles too. i walk a 13min per mile pace, i can ocassionally jog for 30-60 seconds every mile. My amputee stops me from jogging fully.
key is training, when i signed up i too was anxious, but the DIS community talked me through it and ive learnt that aslong as i can keep pace i can do it.
so can you!
keep checking in with us and let us know your progress we are still a solid 5 months of training away from the event. keep going, keep training, eat right and you will succeed.
when you feel like you cant do somthing, tell yourself you can, prove to yourself you are stronger than quitting. as long as your mind and heart are in the right place you will be succesful i assure you.
i will see you at the race, look for the short kid from england with the prosthetic leg singing along to his ipod and you found me haha
