Yes! I went ahead and did it on Monday afternoon. I decided to change my up my ratio to :45 run/1:45 walk. It was tough, but I finished strong.

How do you get email updates?

Good job!

I only started getting emails from runDisney after I registered for my first race with them. Maybe they could add you to their list if you email them. This is the email address they send from: rundisney@disneysports.com

Well Ducks, I got some bad news today. Found out I have a stress fracture in my right foot. My third metatarsal of my right foot is broken. You could see the line plain as day on the X-ray. No running and I'm in a stinkin boot for the next three weeks. Then I go back for another X-ray to see where I stand. Ugh I am so annoyed!!!

So here's the "story".. A month or two (maybe three??) ago I noticed the top of my right foot would sometimes feel a little twinge. No big deal, it never hurt when I ran. Time went on and it became routine that every morning I woke up it would be hurting a bit. But soon after I was up and around for the day it felt fine. And again, it never hurt when I ran! Well these past few days I've noticed it hurting worse in the mornings, so I decided to get it checked. And there ya go.

He said that probably what's happening is that when I'm sleeping my foot is twisting around and getting aggravated. During the day it stays in a constant form. And it doesn't hurt when I run because my shoe acts like a cast so the area isn't moving too much. (But the impact is still happening hence not being allowed to run.)

I asked if I could still bike and he was kinda wishy washy on that. But I am going to. No way I'm not doing ANYthing for three weeks!

So now I have this ridiculous clunky boot on. It makes me taller on that side so I have to wear a shoe all the time on the other. (I'm not one to wear shoes around my house, gross, so that's "nice".)

Ugh. Ok vent over. Time to focus on healing.

Oh, Liz. I'm so sorry to hear that! How odd that it's been broken for so long yet you ran not one, but TWO Half marathons! Crazy stuff. Better to be safe than sorry and rest, rest, rest. I know it's hard to do, I know!

You will bounce back. Heck, I did NOTHING for 4 months (including prior to and after) around my knee surgery. Not a thing. Nada. Zip. I got the official approval to start exercising the first week in July, and finished the Wine and Dine Half Marathon on October 1. That's just 3 months. 3 months! You now have just under 1 year for the Goofy. That's plenty of time. Plus, you're already in great shape to begin with, so it'll come back pretty quick.

My rambling point here is - listen to your doctor, rest and heal. You will still be able to do everything in time. I suck at patience (Disney buses?? Ahhh!), but managed through my injury and surgery and rehab. If I can do it, anyone can! Take it easy, OK?!!!

Forgot to also say, the best advice I got after I was injured was to enjoy my time off. (What? are you nuts? It took a few days for that to sink in my shocked brain) Really and Truly, take the time to enjoy it. You know that once you're able to, you'll be running and exercising again. So enjoy sitting around and relaxing for awhile. I know it sounds crazy, but it works! Watch some bad TV, catch up on books. Enjoy the break from running because you'll be back at it again soon enough!

I'm so sorry Liz! Rest and do what your doc says, and we'll be praying it'll heal quickly so you can get back on the road.

Evening Ducks!

Liz - Sorry to hear about the foot. Take'er easy.

I tried jogging this evening and my right knee still isn't any better. Could feel pain from the right side of the knee up into my thigh. Guess its time to make an approintment with the Doc.

Hello Ducks. I found my way back. After taking a year off I plan to get back into running this year.

I plan on doing an 8k in February. I also want to do the TOT 10 miler especially since my first long distance race and first Disney race was the inagural TOT 13k. I also want to go Goofy again in 2013 - still can't believe I missed 2012.

Liz sorry to hear about your stress fracture. Take it easy and let it heal - you will be happy you did!!

Wow Liz, that is sad news. But as Tanya says, you have lots of time to get ready for Goofy after you get the Doc's OK. Hope you heal fast!

Happy New Year Ducks! To all the new ducks, welcome to the pond

Now that I've got a few 5Ks under my belt, I hope to get in a few Half Marathons this year. My first one is scheduled for May 20th, here in NJ (Superhero Half Marathon and Relay). I was hoping to make it down for the TOT 10 miler, but my husband reminded me that he has a MS150 bike ride that same weekend, so now I am considering the W&D Half.

*I've got a fun question for everyone: what is on your playlist when you run? I usually put my iTouch on "shuffle" but lately I have been thinking I really should have a dedicated playlist. I like all kinds of music, so let me know what some of your favorites are and I'll create the Ultimate Ducks Playlist!

*Quick question for everyone: Hal Higdon or Jeff Galloway training plan?

Liz - Feel better, bet 3 weeks flies by! Did you hurt your foot last year or am I thinking of someone else? Oh and can you please add my name to the roster? Thanks for starting up the new thread!

Have a great weekend everyone. We are expecting some nasty weather so I will be on the treadmill!

How did I not know you homeschooled your daughter? Cool that we have a few of us Ducks who homeschool.

I have had such issues getting over to the Dis!! I don't know what's up but it's working at the moment so I'll try and say a quick QUACK.

Tricia -- Glad to see you back here!

Emily -- You too!

Moira -- You're doing awesome!


All other Ducks -- I've read through posts and am thinking about you all.

I finally got back to working out today. Did 30 minutes on the bike and got my fastest time yet. I did close to 8.5 miles. It felt great! I really needed that stress relief. With going back to school (online), my stress level has greatly increased, which has triggered my blood pressure to go up. I need to start making time daily for some exercise. And I'm going to start the DASH diet on Monday. In fact, the whole family will be. I'm looking to lose some weight, but mostly I just want to feel better.

I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend and Go Patriots!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Liz & Vic: Hope you both are healing quickly!

Carissa: GOOD LUCK on your & your family's new plan! I've had a lot of clients succeed with the DASH diet & exercise.

Robyn: I love Disney songs! Hercules' Go the Distance is my favorite motivational one:
I will find my way
I can go the distance
I'll be there someday
If I can be strong
I know ev'ry mile
Will be worth my while
I would go most anywhere
to feel like I belong.
